The British South Africa Company administered the territory which eventually became Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The full history is given on the British Central Africa page and see also the StampWorldHistory schematic.
So far as this area is concerned, formerly part of British Central Africa, administered by the British South Africa Company from 1889 to 1924, the area was divided into Northern and a separate Southern Rhodesia until 1954 when they both joined Rhodesia and Nyasaland until 1963. In October 1964 it became an independent republic within the commonwealth as Zambia.
† While Scott lists Zambia from #1, Gibbons continues sequentially from Northern Rhodesia SG1-SG88.
