While for the most part prices are fixed in Zambia, there are a few instances where prices are negotiable.

• When shopping for handicrafts at local markets, you'll definitely need to haggle.

• Taxis don't have meters, so you should definitely bargain on the price quoted to you.

• For those staying in locally owned guesthouses, you can also aim for a discounted price, particularly if you're staying for a few nights.
