Hi there, everything you need to know about entry requirements:
http://www.fco.gov.uk/en/travel-and-liv ... y-country/

Just make sure you refresh the site each time you check...that'll ensure you get the latest info.

For South Africa & Botswana you don't need a visa but you will do for Zambia:

Visas
British passport holders need a visa to enter Zambia. You can get a visa from the Zambian High Commission in London before you travel. . Single and double entry visit visas are available at all ports of entry, but multi-entry visas are not. If you plan to get a visa on arrival, make sure you have the correct amount of cash with you as change may not be available.


Happy Travels!
DO THE RIGHT THING ...all the time, every time!

thanks for the reply, is it the same price on the border as getting it through London.
