About Lusaka

Lusaka, city, capital of Zambia. It is situated in the south-central part of the country on a limestone plateau of 4,198 feet (1,280 meters) above sea level. Lusaka is not one of Africa's most attractive cities but compared with others it has a relaxed air and people are generally friendly and laid back.

Travel To Lusaka, Zambia to experience Zambia's largest urban boomtown. A Lusaka Safari is the perfect way to see baboons, jackals, and pangolins.

The main street in Lusaka is Cairo Road where there are numerous markets and bazaars. During the week the pavements are bursting with people and traffic is virtually at a standstill. East of the road, on Lumumba, is Lusaka's biggest market. This is an interesting place to visit, however, we recommend you take a local guide to advise you on prices and local customs.

Finally, a place well worth a visit is the Moore Pottery factory. On the Eastern side of Kabelenga Road, it has beautiful ceramics.
