This beetle is a Horned Passalus, also known as a Bess Bug. These beetles are usually black, but the one you spotted is more red, most likely because it is newly emerged (young adult). It's an insect, so can you please change the category from "other" to "arthropods"? Also, please double check your location as it states that you saw this beetle in Zambia.
