Lusaka is the capital and largest city of Zambia and many believe it’s one of the fastest-developing cities in Southern Africa. Not much as a destination itself, this busy little city provides you with an access point to the country’s best attractions.

Home to one of the seven natural wonders of the world, Zambia has an abundance of attractions, which bring travellers from all over the globe. With 19 National Parks, 17 waterfalls including the great Victoria Falls, and home to the big five, this city allows you to have a ‘base’ before you head off on your epic adventure.

English is the official language of the city, but Nyanja, and Bemba are also commonly heard as you walk through some of the market places in the busiest parts of the town.

What to do

  • Visit the local market for some beautiful curios
  • Wonder around the main shopping malls of arcades and Manda Hill for some traditional 'pub grub' and flavours of Zambia
