As the capital of Zambia, Lusaka offers a distinctly metropolitan vibe enhanced by its continued growth as a central travel hub. Travellers are certain to appreciate the influx of modern shopping, dining and night life options along with a generous selection of contemporary staying options.
Spend your days exploring the new additions to the Soweto Market or the Kabwata Cultural Village before unwinding in the likes of the Taj Pamodizi Hotel with its 5-star service and position close to the Zambia National Museum. Modern style for less can be found at the Protea Hotel Lusaka, Protea Hotel Cairo Road and the Cresta Golfview.
Though Lusaka continues to develop, unique tradition is alive and well. A trip to the Henry Tayali Gallery is worth considering to explore local art exhibitions. Or, take in a show at the Lusaka Playhouse. You can also find a number of local inns and B&Bs where traditional hospitality is readily available.
The Sarek Creek B&B and Wayside Guest House are just two of the options, both of which feature beautiful garden settings and friendly service. Rates are beyond reasonable, which certainly adds to the appeal. The former is close to the Soweto Markets, while the later is near the Munda Wanga Environmental Park.
For something a bit different
Lusaka is also home to a number of more unique accommodation options, including a selection of game reserves that offer the chance to not only view local wildlife but also participate in game drives, bush walks, fishing and horseback safaris. Depending on how remote you'd like to go, there are a handful of lodges to choose from.
Lilayi Lodge is approximately 20 kilometres outside of the city, providing guests with luxury chalet accommodation with access to an on-site restaurant and a number of exclusive activities. For a more remote experience, the Shiwa Ng'andu Manor House can be reached via charter flight, providing guests with comfortable accommodation in a historic manor on a private game reserve.
