Climate and average weather in Zambia
Zambia is in Southern Africa. Roughly the size of France, Zambia is a landlocked country, bordered by Tanzania to the northeast, Malawi to the east, Mozambique to the southeast, Zimbabwe and Botswana to the south, a narrow strip of Namibia to the southwest, Angola to the west, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the northwest. If you look at a map, Zambia appears to be squarely in the tropics, but thanks to its landlocked and elevated position it does have distinct seasons.
