Zambia will send an advance party to Equatorial Guinea check on facilities at their base in Ebebiyin.
Honour Janza’s side will play their Group B matches in the remote town near the border with Cameroon.
Janza said he did not have an opportunity to visit Ebebiyin earlier when he travelled to Malabo for the 2015 Africa Cup draws on December 3.
“There was no provision to go there and we wanted to even more especially that we will be based almost in far areas of Equatorial Guinea on the border area with Cameroon,” Janza said.
“We have an advance party going there soon to get details so that by the time the teams camps in South Africa we will be able to get all the information we need.”
Janza said team manager Lusekelo Kamwambi is expected represent his technical bench in the advance party.
Ebebiyin is one of two new venues in Equatorial Guinea that were not part of the 2012 Africa Cup when the country co-hosted the event with Gabon.
The town is accessible via road and teams heading there will have to fly into the other new tournament venue at Mongomo before taking a 40 minute drive to Ebebiyin.
Zambia are in Group B together with Tunisia, DR Congo and Cape Verde.
Meanwhile, Zambia will switch base to South Africa on Friday before returning home after January 11 en route to Equatorial Guinea.
Zambia also have a confirmed friendly against South Africa on January 4 at Orlando Stadium in Johannesburg. Kick off will be at 15h00.
