Lusaka

Lusaka is Zambia’s administrative and financial capital and is centrally located in the country, making it a hub of regional commerce. Situated on a plateau, Lusaka’s altitude ensures a generally agreeable climate.
The city is rapidly growing, and urban road development needs help to keep pace. Nevertheless, it is a lively, modern African city with ample shopping centres and service industries. While there is high unemployment in the city (60% +) it is generally regarded as safe for tourists with a common-sense approach. Lusaka’s central location makes it an excellent springboard to tourist attractions further afield, and there is a good selection of accommodations and restaurants to choose from.
