The area that is now Zambia was originally inhabited by the Khoisan people until the region was absorbed by the Bantu expansion of the thirteenth century. European explorers arrived in the eighteenth century. The region became the British protectorates of Barotziland-North-Western Rhodesia and North-Eastern Rhodesia towards the end of the nineteenth century. In 1911 both were merged to form Northern Rhodesia. For most of the colonial period, Zambia was governed by an administration appointed by the powers to be in London. Northern Rhodesia became the Republic of Zambia on 24 October 1964, with Kenneth Kaunda as the first president and Zambia became independent of the United Kingdom.

Vagabond Travel came into being April 16, 2014 when I departed Canada heading for Mexico City. I have no destination in mind, nor an itinerary to follow. This is a sort of website, journal and travel blog all rolled into one. That's about it.
