In most cases you’ll fly into Zambia at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport in Lusaka. You’ll find a number of different airlines can be scheduled for flights to more difficult to reach destinations, but Proflight are the best (and often only) option for regular internal flights.
Buses are everywhere and very affordable, but not always very pleasant to travel in. A combination of bad roads, long distances and slow buses makes travelling by bus in Zambia an experience for the brave. Of course, if you are looking for the cheapest way to see the country and for a true Zambian experience, buses might be your answer.
Car hire is an option, but beyond the Lusaka borders roads can sometimes necessitate a 4x4. Tourists from most destinations can use their own licence during a short stay. If you do drive, be respectful to other drivers, stick to speed limits (even if others don’t) and allow enough time for unexpected eventualities.
Taxis are not the cheapest (they are meter-less), but often the quickest and most convenient. Talk to the front desk at Southern Sun Ridgeway to arrange a taxi with a reputable driver and settle on your price before you drive.
