The Eriksson family consists of Dorothy and Rolf Eriksson and their four children and twelve grandchildren. Rolf is originally from Sweden. In 1973, he and Dorothy bought the Chankwakwa farm in Kabwe, Zambia. The mixture of Swedish and Zambian culture might at first appear as an odd couple. However, it quickly becomes evident that this is not the case. In reality, the Eriksson’s are a fantastic example of the cultural diversity that exists in Zambia. With his Swedish agricultural background, Rolf Eriksson has contributed with a Scandinavian sense of order and efficiency, while Dorothy stands for everything that characterizes a colourful, African woman. Today they work together with their son Bertil and his family that also live at the farm.
