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 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
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.
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.

Very lovely place with a huge potential to attract a lot of rich foreigners who can in the long run expand the economy of the country. Keep it up Zambians, welcome to a family of beautiful countries, proudly South African
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.
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 Place is very dirty with outdated buildings which sad to say are mashrooming in this modern age.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.
