Relics of colonial past can be seen in the city, but since 1964 under their first president, Kenneth Kaunda, Lusaka has shaken off some of its history and continues to evolve. While the city might not have the same tourist appeal as some other more famous African city destinations, those that make the journey to Lusaka are well rewarded with a uniquely Zambian experience
Discover the best of the city in a local landmark, the Southern Sun Ridgeway. The hotel of choice for in-the-know professionals and NGOs, Lusaka-locals and off-the-beaten-track exploring for over 60 years. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a hotel that offers all the basics combined with modern international standards of comfort, then the StayEasy Lusaka hotel is well positioned next to Zambia’s largest mall, Levy Junction.
One of the top nature-highlights near the city is the Lilayi Elephant Nursery. This elephant nursery rehabilitates orphan baby elephants during their youngest years before being later released back into the wild. Elephant feeding time is both educational and a special experience. If you’re looking to explore the world of Zambian art, then the Namwandwe Art & Sculpture Gallery is regarded as one of the nation’s best art galleries.
