Lusaka highlights

The Munda Wanga Environmental Park, Parays Game Ranch and Chaminuka Lodge will introduce you to the indigenous flora and fauna. But for a little culture, try Lusaka’s National Museum and the Namwandwe Gallery.

  • Tourist attractions

    One of Zambia’s largest tourist draws is its wildlife, and Lusaka has worked tirelessly to preserve some of the more endangered species native to the country.

    The Munda Wanga Environmental Park is at the forefront of the country’s environmental conservation, and is renowned for nursing animals and releasing them back into the wild. The park also includes a stunning botanical garden.

    The National Museum has a modest exterior, but houses a collection of regional artefacts and artwork that make the visit extremely worthwhile. Alternatively, the Namwandwe Gallery contains one of the finest exhibits of contemporary African art in the city. It is home to the private collection of businessman and entrepreneur John Kapotwe, and includes art, sculptures, fabrics and masks created by both established and up-and-coming artists.

  • Leisure activities

    Most of your time in when you travel to Lusaka will be spent exploring the surrounding game parks and reserves. Parays Game Ranch, about 21 km from the city centre, is home to zebra and kudus, and Chaminuka Lodge is a privately owned park full of Africa’s most iconic fauna, including antelopes, elephants, giraffes, zebra, lions and hyenas.

    If you want to cool off during the hottest part of the day, then head to the Olympic-sized public swimming pool off Nangwenya Road. It is spotlessly clean, well-maintained and has excellent supporting facilities. 

    For a little cultural experience mixed with some souvenir shopping, head to the Kabwata Cultural Village on Burma Road.

  • Food

    There are plenty of restaurants and food outlets to choose from in Lusaka, ranging from authentic Ethiopian cuisine to South Asian, French and European, or simple on-the-go snacks. Vegetarian food is plentiful and very popular, as is seafood.

    The universal dish is nsima, which is made from maize flour and is the staple food in this region of Africa. It is usually served with protein-based side dishes known as ndiyo or umunani, and vegetable dishes called masamba.

  • Shopping

    For the authentic African market experience, head to Lusaka City Market. If you prefer more upscale retail, then visit Manda Hill Mall, which houses a variety of outlets, including branded international luxury goods and local trinkets.
