Generally Lusaka is a good destination. The people are warm, friendly and welcoming. To a visitor the pricing is reasonable. By looking at the influx of visitors coming into Zambia and to Lusaka in particular, one tends to conclude that there is something about this City that is charming and spell binding. Is it the Zambian hospitality? the people? one has to come to Lusaka to find out on their own. Seeing is believing.

The RADISSON BLU is a nice hotel located in a beautiful position close to all the major banks, but above all the two large shopping arcades with most of the leisure facilities. It's near the airport, you can get there quickly, even during peak hours.

For transport, the buses are normally a cheap. if you are in a hurry use a car taxi, though they can be a bit expensive. Traffic is hectic if you are rushing anywhere especially between 6:30 and 9hrs make sure to leave where ever you are an hour before as traffic gets crazy.

A town full of potential but still very lacking in entertainment and infrastructure. Bloody expensive too. As the capital city of the country with the highest population, you'd expect a lot more. it is quite fancy from the airport to around the first roundabout, but from there on, the environment is crying for development. there is a lot that can be done to change all this.

Very friendly poeple, affordable life (depending on where you want to do your shopping). great night life (if you know what I mean...kikikiki) no transportation issues, great shopping malls, wonderfull game areas and nature places to see, plenty of rivers for rafting, fishing and you get to see the victoria falls from the side that owns the Zambezi river, the beautiful side. lol

The safest place in the world. Above all the most peaceful place in the continent where you walk the streets with peace of mind and friendly environment.

The people are very cultural, frinedly. there are lots of entertainment spots. They place a high value on their traditional food. Although some resturants do try to bring different cuisine depending on your preference. Locals can notice a clueless visitor, so its best to be vigilant and not trust so easily. Overall, its just like any other city, fast life, club scene, and variety.

I wish Lusaka residents could realize how their city should be kept clean, avoiding littler and filth surrounding. Most parts of Lusaka are kept very dirty due to uncontrollable litter disposal.

People are friendly and the place is safe compared to other african countries. Place is very dirty with outdated buildings which sad to say are mashrooming in this modern age. The road network is equally bad.

Lusaka is full of charming and busy markets, as the Lumburma Market, ready to be visited and enjoyed.
Lusaka National Museum is surely one of the most attractive public buildings in the capital.
This cultural history museum shows the story of Zambia in four main sections:
Ethnography
Witchcraft
History
Contemporary Art.
Kabwata Cultural Centre, located on Burma Road, is probably the city’s best spot for buying hand-carved crafts.
Other interesting sights are the National Assembly building, the university ... More area, the Anglican cathedral, the State House and the Munda Wanga Botanic and Zoological Gardens.
Not far away from Lusaka is the Kalimba Reptile Park, which displays a good variety of crocodiles, snakes and chameleons.

Lusaka, the capital city of Zambia, is located on a limestone plateau 4,198 feet (1,280 meters) above sea level.
It lies at the junction of the Great North Road, which runs to Tanzania, and the Great East Road, which goes to Malawi.
The capital covers an area of over 70 km2 and is one of the fastest-growing cities in central Africa.
Lusaka enjoys a wonderful climate with warm, sunny summers and mild winters with loads of sunshine.
Lusaka was founded by Europeans in 1905 and it the name of the headman of a nearby African village. Its ... More main growth occurred after 1935, when it replaced Livingstone as the capital of the British colony of Northern Rhodesia.
Today Lusaka is a very busy metropolis with a population of about 2 millions inhabitants and an incredible mix between old and new.
The fast-growing industrial development has brought together people of many nationalities, making it a bustling centre for economic, political and cultural activities.

The lusaka city is very enjoyble and very safe to live in. You can do your business in a safe enviroment. Lusaka is a place with variant transport arrangements for your travel within and outside the city. In some places things are very expensive depending what you are looking for.

Very nice, good surroundings and the city needs people to clean it. More roads need to be done and lighting systems need to be improved and worked on. Some roads need to be added to help with less traffic in the city.

Slowly becoming congested in terms of accommodation and road network system. There is need to expand the business areas and industry from the main district town center.

Lusaka is a safe and enjoyable place to stay. All accommodation is available for those who want a pleasant stay. Shopping, clubbing, sightseeing and relaxing city. Many places to stay from lodges, to hotels and apartments for rent. I do visit it every year and love coming back.
