Zambia - Customs RegulationsZambia - Customs Regulations
It is against both Zambian and U.S. law to buy, possess or transport animals or animal products, such as warthog tusks, tortoise shell, rhino horn, elephant ivory or any items made out of these materials. In Zambia, penalties range from large fines to mandatory five-year prison sentences. The Department of National Parks and Wildlife has screeners at international ports of entry and will prosecute offenders to the fullest extent of the law. While many of these items are sold in open markets particularly aimed at foreign tourists, it remains the responsibility of the customer to ensure that he/she is not purchasing a prohibited item.
