Transcript of Zambia

Native clothing and music
Native people in Zambia wear very unique clothing. Women's clothing consists of long dresses with bright colorful beads and string while men's clothing consists of short sleeve shirts with various patterns printed on them. Native music in Zambia is very quiet beauty, bustle, bounding life or brimming joy characteristics many aspects of music and dance in Zambia. Many traditional instruments are stilled played throughout the country although the desire for more western music and dance increases. The more common instruments are the xylophone, hand piano, and drums.
For your trip, we plan to send you
to the grasslands of Zambia. From
Phoenix to Zambia, you will travel by
commercial airplane in first class.
You will have a bicycle as your transportation while you visit Zambia. For clothing, pack a light jacket, and waterproof pants with T-shirts, and jeans. Also, remember to bring a high amount of water.
The food that you will be eating in Zambia is very unique to Zambia's culture. Some foods include Chin Chin, a sweet donut-like baked or fried dough of wheat flour, Plantain Chips, a banana that is fried and powdered in sugar, and Titus, sardines in vegetable oil. While you are visiting Zambia there are many different types of activities you can do like visiting Victoria Falls, Devil's Pool, and a Canoeing Safari. Victoria Falls is a huge waterfall on the Zambia River that you will be able to go in the water and look right over the edge. Devil's Pool is a giant pool in the Zambian river that is very relaxing. The last activity that you will be experiencing is a canoeing safari down the Zambian river. It is one of the quietest trenches of the upper Zambezi. It is among the more relaxing ways to enjoy the Zambian Safari.
One endangered animal in Zambia is the Roan antelope. The two main contributing factors to this animal's endangerment is farming, which destroys the Roan antelope's habitat, the grassland, and poaching. In an effort to save the Roan antelope, its habitats are being protected, and farmers are attempting to conserve their land space and stop doing slash-and-burn agriculture. Most of this is being done by the African Wildlife Foundation. If I could make a loaw to protect this animal, I would make a fine of $500 to anyone who tries to poach this animal, and I would enforce it by having game wardens patrol the borders of the habitat.
Predator Prey relationships and Symbiotic relationships
The lion and the wildebeest are one of the many predator prey relationships in Zambia. The lion hunts the wildebeest by creeping up to it in the tall grass and striking it with its teeth. Another predator prey relation are crocodiles and zebras. The crocodile sneaks up to the zebra when it is taking a drink of water and strikes at it to kill it.
Symbiotic relationships are very common in Zambia because of all the different species, an example being the Egyptian Plover and a crocodile. The little bird goes into the crocodiles mouth and picks out all the food stuck in its teeth. This is called mutualism. Another symbiotic relationship is between the black rhino and the ox-pecker bird, which perches on the animal and feeds on flies and ticks. This is called mutualism.

Climate and Environment
Most of the rainfall is between November
and April, at around 100-200 mm per month.
The average temperature is 69.7 degrees f, and the average wind speed is 10.6 kph South. There are three seasons, a dry winter from May to August, a hot dry period from August to mid-November, and a wet warm period from November to April. For plants, Crinum jasonni, Crinum binghamiaa, Euphorbia debilispina, Euphorbia jubata, and Gladiolus serenjesis are common sights. For animals, the Zambian mole-rat, the Kafue Flats Lechwe, the Rosevar's striped grass mouse, Bangweulu Tsessbebe, and Ansell's Shrew are common animals. Zambia is a landlocked country, with hills, river valleys, flood plains, and high plateaus. Westward, there is a swamp. One special thing to note is that most of the country is not urbanized at all. Occasional droughts and tropical storms are the only actual natural disasters.
Limiting Factors of Zambia
1. Floods affect Zambia's population. They impact the ecosystem because they distroy many man built houses and buildings along the river.
2. Deforestation exsits because Zambian farmers who chop down trees to make room for goat farms. This effects the ecoystem because it destroies habbitats.
3. Temperature effects Zambia's ecoystem because it can be really hot and cause droughts. This effects the ecoystem because it can cause droughts.
4. Poaching affects the animal population of Zambia because Zambian hunter kill many animals that decreases the population of that animal. This effects the ecoystem in Zambia because it limits the animal population.
