Nope, don't need anything at all. Just show up with your camera and shoot away. Not sure why you would need documents for a lens or camera.

I've never been to Zambia, and as mentioned above, no need to register camera equipment in Bots, Namibia or S Africa in my experience. For future reference, however, when crossing into Swaziland I was required to provide serial numbers for my netbook and camera. My understanding is this is to prove they are mine when leaving the country, and that they have not been stolen or smuggled...(apparently there is a lot of smuggling stolen property through Swaziland, perhaps due to its proximity to Mozambique)...
