Fun facts about Zambia

  • Zambia is named for a river
    The Republic of Zambia takes its name from the Zambezi river which flows along the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. The Zambezi is the fourth-longest river in Africa after the rivers Nile, Congo, and Niger. As of 2021, the population of Zambia is almost 19.2 million. The capital city is Lusaka, which has 2.7 million inhabitants.
  • Zambia has no coast
    Zambia is a landlocked country and its eight neighbouring countries are the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to the north, Tanzania, Malawi and Mozambique to the east, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia to the south and Angola to the west.
  • More than 72 languages are spoken in Zambia

The seven local languages taught in schools and used in official communications are Bemba, Konde, Lozi, Luna, Luvale and Nyanja and Tonga. The most widely spoken and understood of these languages are Bemba and Nyanja.
  • Zambia is home to one of the world’s biggest waterfalls
    The UNESCO World Heritage Site Mosi-oa-Tunya / Victoria Falls is one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World. It is located in both Zambia and Zimbabwe and is the largest curtain of falling water in the world standing at an altitude of about 915 metres above mean sea level (a.m.s.l.) and is 1,708 metres wide. Scottish explorer David Livingstone named the waterfall after Queen Victoria. The local name in the Kololo and Lozi languages is Mosi-oa-tunya, which means “the smoke that thunders”. UNESCO inscribed Victoria Falls on its World Heritage list because of both its geological and ecological importance due to it being a breeding site for four species of endangered birds and migratory bird species too, including the Taita Falcon and Black Eagle.
  • Zambia has the largest man-made lake in the world
    Lake Kariba is the largest man-made lake and reservoir in the world by volume. It is 226km long and up to 40km wide in some places. Located along the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, it provides electricity to both countries. There’s a thriving commercial fishing industry on Lake Kariba, but, apart from fish, you’ll also find Nile crocodiles and hippopotami living in the lake.
    Bonus fact: In Zambia, you’ll also find Lake Tanganyika, which is the second-largest and deepest freshwater lake in the world.
  • Zambia is home to the Big Five
    You’ll find all of Africa’s Big Five animals in Zambia. The Big Five animals are lions, elephants, leopards, rhinoceros and Cape buffalos. South Luangwa National Park in eastern Zambia is a protected area for these animals. The park is also home to over 400 species of birds. Zambia is also home to wild dogs, one of the most endangered species in the world. Zambia is one of only six countries where wild dogs still live. You’ll also see the critically endangered black rhinos and shoebill storks. The wonderful wildlife living in Zambia is why safaris are so popular here.

What are the Differences with Other Calling Services?

When looking at Talk360’s competitors, Talk360 functions in a different manner. An amazing feature for new people is its free test call. Get the international calling app & directly start to perform cross-border calls. This way, you have the opportunity to experience the reliable call quality of global calls with the Talk360 calling app before you add call credit.

Another difference from most other calling apps is that the receiver does not need to have an internet connection. Someone who receives a call doesn’t need to have the Talk360 calling app on their phone & they don’t need to connected to the internet. This is a unique difference compared to some other VOIP solutions! Besides, you can call landline & mobile numbers using the app’s affordable international dialing rates. Only the person who is calling is in need of a Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G, or 5G connection.

Next to that, Talk360 doesn’t require a contract or a new SIM card for it to be useful. You use your phone number as a caller ID. It is not necessary to get a different SIM. Additionally, Talk360 has good training with clear documentation.
