The North-western Province in Zambia is the most sparsely populated province in the country.  Situated west of the Copperbelt, neatly placed between Angola and the DRC, this area is distant from most of Zambia.  Despite being so far out, the roads here are generally in good condition, making transport to and from the towns easier.

The North-western Province incorporates Mporokoso, Mpulungu, Mwinilunga and Solwezi.
