Most of your time in Lusaka could 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.
