Attractions near the Protea Hotel Lusaka
An afternoon at the Arcades
Thanks to the hotel’s excellent location adjoining the Arcades Complex, you don’t need any excuse to pop over next door for some retail therapy. Boasting a wide range of shops and eateries, the Arcades is popular amongst locals and tourists alike. You can find unique fashion items, accessories and artisan mementos, before taking a seat and savouring the local cuisine at one of the many restaurants.
If you’re in Lusaka on a Sunday, visit the Arcades to wander through the Pataki Sunday Market, which sprawls across the car park. It's the perfect spot to purchase authentic handicrafts and to try your hand at haggling.
Crocs away at Kalimba Reptile Park
Kalimba Reptile Park is the place to go if you want to get away from the city for a few hours. As the name suggests, the Park is teeming with native and exotic reptiles including impressive crocodiles, slithery snakes and large tortoises.
Once you’ve checked out the animals and learnt a little more about the breeding programs at the Park, you might want to treat yourself to some of the local favourites at the Park's cafe. You can also take a refreshing dip in a swimming pool (crocodile free) and there are plenty of activities for the little ones including crazy golf and table tennis.
