A hodge podge of buildings, Lusaka is a typical African city with a bit of first world with its internet cafes, fancy glass bank buildings and new shopping malls alongside colonial buildings with wide tree lined streets. Market stalls manned by their owner entrepreneurs jostle between the solid buildings, offering any and all types of goods.

With little formal planning the city has grown organically and forms a vibrant crossways of roads leading north, west, east and south. Lusaka airport is 14km from the city centre and well serviced by taxis and buses or privately arranged vehicles. A range of hotels offer reasonable overnight accommodation including the Holiday Inn, Taj Pamodzi and Chaminuka – a private game reserve 45 minutes from the airport.

An organic African town, Lusaka has grown of its own accord
