"Kwacha - the currency" Top 5 Page for this destination Zambia Favorite Tip by Saagar

Favorite thing: Interesting money - and lots of them.
July 2005 exchange rate to the dollar was 1:4600.
The smaller notes are so worn that you cannot read their denomination, only guess by color code. The new, crisp notes are depicting beautiful animals.
Banks, hotels change cash quickly. Didn't try bankcards in the ATMs, but they were on every corner at the shopping plazas of the Archades, Manda Hill etc.
Apart from the odd exchange rate, the money handling in Zambia was easy.
