Attractions near the Intercontinental Lusaka
Shop for local arts and crafts
The fascinating Kabwata Cultural Village is an excellent place to spend a leisurely morning or afternoon during your stay in Lusaka. A great spot to browse authentic arts and crafts and handmade trinkets, the village also offers an interesting insight into traditional life and a glimpse of colonial Zambia.
Stop and spend some time watching the skilled wood carvers making their wares, and get ready to haggle for a unique souvenir. Choose from a wide selection of locally made handicrafts and pieces from all over the country – carved wooden ornaments and colourful jewellery make excellent mementos of your trip. Afterwards, relax in the Tigwilizane restaurant and sample the flavours that are true to this region.
Visit the little elephants at Lilayi
Located in the Lilayi Wildlife Park, the Lilayi Elephant Nursery provides a truly wonderful experience for all the family. Here, under the heat of the African sun, little orphaned elephants are nurtured and prepared for life in the National Park.
Those who want to see these beautiful babies have just a small window to do so – the park is only open from 11:30am to 1pm daily. The experience of watching the baby elephants interact with their carers during feeding time is one that will warm the heart and stay in your memory forever.
