Tourlane, an online travel agency based in USA recently ranked Zambia the 6th safest travel destination in the world post COVID-19 pandemic. If driving independently, always get local advice on the road conditions and recommended routes and never underestimate driving times or drive at night.Below are tips on staying safe in Zambia.Staying Safe on Wildlife Viewing ActivitiesAs long as you listen to your guide’s instructions, you’ll be very safe on safari. Always follow the rules of the park and respect wild animals. When on a self-drive safari, only leave your car where it has been designated as safe to do so. For additional tips, kindly read the following captioned bulletin points:•Always follow your guide’s instructions and guidelines!•Always keep your voice down when close to animals•Stay in the car during game drives except at designated areas where you are allowed to get out•Don't stand up in the car, hang out of the window or sit on the roof•Don’t drive too close to animals if you are on a self-drive safari and back off if the animals seem disturbed•Don’t drive between elephants in a herd, especially females and their young•Stay together as a group close to your guide on a walking safari and always walk in single file•Never run or jog in a wildlife area as it entices predators to attack•Never walk between a hippo and water; it may panic and charge because its safety route to the water is blocked•Never leave food in your tent; it will attract wildlife•Cover your arms and legs in the evening and use insect repellent to protect against mosquitoes•Wear a hat, use sunscreen and drink plenty of water•Don't wear bright and colorful clothes or too much perfume – especially on walking safaris•In tsetse-fly areas it is recommended not to wear dark-colored clothing – such as black or dark blue – since it attracts these stinging flies•Bring warm clothes for morning game drives in open vehiclesStaying Safe in Cities and Towns in Zambia.As in most big cities in the world, there is a fair amount of crime in Zambia’s cities and towns. Most incidents are minor, such as petty theft and pickpocketing. You are unlikely to encounter any trouble on guided tours. When venturing out in the city unguided, it helps to take some simple safety precautions: seek advice from your hotel about the area; don’t wear any valuables and only take the money you need with you; take a taxi after dark. For more safety tips that apply to Zambia cities and towns in general, kindly read the following bulletin points:•Ask at your hotel if it is safe to walk around the local area; when new in a place it’s always good to seek local advice on safety issues•Don’t wear jewelry when walking in cities and leave all valuables in a safety deposit box at your hotel•Avoid walking alone in a large, unfamiliar city•Don’t walk around at night; take a taxi•Avoid getting engaged with people approaching you in the street•Be careful when drawing money from an ATM; go elsewhere if you suspect people hanging around•Always lock your car doors and close windows when driving in busy towns•Never leave a car unattended with valuables or luggage visible
