The Kuomboka Ceremony is probably one of the greatest Southern African ceremonies and is celebrated by the Lozi people of western Zambia.

This annual procession marks the transition of the Litunga (king) from his summer to winter residence, which is located on higher ground, away from the seasonal flood plains. 

This ceremony dates back more than 300 years when the Lozi people broke away from the great Lunda Empire to come and settle in the upper regions of the Zambezi.
