Southern Sun Ridgeway Lusaka

Hotel in Lusaka, Zambia

A city-landmark even before Zambia was born, the Southern Sun Ridgeway has been the hotel of choice for in-the-know professionals and NGOs, Lusaka-locals and off-the-beaten-track exploring for over 60 years. Service-first, best-for-business and newly refurbished rooms in a quiet corner of Zambia’s capital, Southern Sun Ridgeway creates a sense of home whether you’re Africa experienced, or you’ve just arrived.

Beautifully refurbished rooms at our Lusaka hotel are comfortable spaces that celebrate Zambia’s rich heritage and natural wonders. Every room is equipped for a great night’s sleep with blackout curtains, soft and spacious beds and walk-in showers. Feel-at-home comforts include complimentary WiFi , flat-screen DStv and 24-hour room service.

Big green gardens, pool and palm trees, in-house gym, on-site bank and airline offices create an inner-city escape with CBD convenience. 30 minutes from the international airport and moments from embassies, business headquarters and cultural highlights makes for easy exploring and simple arrivals. Lusaka is a gateway to Zambia experiences including two of the continent’s largest mammal migrations, the ‘Smoke That Thunders’ and the Copperbelt.

Weddings, meetings and events, are looked after by the events team and supported from concept to completion. A choice of six venues, space up to 300, on-site parking, restaurant quality catering and a setting that is as photogenic as it is productivity-enhancing, makes it one of Lusaka’s leading conference centres.

Musuku restaurant, next to the pond-courtyard with its resident reed-home weavers and baby crocodiles, is a Lusaka central destination for dinner dates, business breakfasts and ladies lunches. Specialising in a taste-of-home wherever you’ve arrived from, local menu favourites like Nshima, Kafue bream and Mosi beer are at home next to made-to-order pizza-perfection, grill classics and imported bar selections.

TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence accommodation, a heritage of service, and silver awarded eco-initiatives make it easy to make yourself at home at Southern Sun Ridgeway, Lusaka.
