Lusaka is the gateway for many visitors o Zambia and a night or two at the beginning or end of a safari is often spent in the fast growing capital city.

Why visit Lusaka ?

Lusaka lies at the junction of the main highways to the north, east, south and west, and at an altitude of approximately 1,300 meters above sea level. Away from the tree-lined avenues of the smart Government area, the city’s markets are a hive of activity as thousands of stalls are set up every day: a myriad of motor spares dealers, restaurants, hairdressers, fishmongers, fruit sellers and rows and rows of “salaula” – stalls of discarded clothing from the West sold to Africa by the bale. There are air links to the key Zambian national parks from Lusaka airport.
