About Lusaka

Lusaka is the capital city of Zambia. Although the city does not have any specific sights, it is a good base to plan your trip, get all the right documents for onward travel as well as a convenient base for exploring the region.

Cairo Road is one of the big axis of the city. Most shops are grouped along this broad double carriageway. Many of the government buildings are about 6km away along Independence Ave.

One of the attractions of the city are its markets. Always full of activity, the thousands of stalls are filled and cleared every day. A myriad of motor spares dealers, restaurants, hairdressers, fishmongers, fruitsellers and rows and rows of "salaula" - discarded clothing from the West sold to Africa by the bale.
