What is Lusaka known for?


abundant life

Servants on their travels and usually comprise a bedroom, breakfast, a pleasant bar and off-street parking - and are usually modern and clean and less than half the price of the top-end hotels. *'''The Abundant Life''' is an impeccably clean hostel run by a local church. No alcohol allowed on the premises. Staff is extremely friendly. They offer ''en suite'' rooms and genuine suites, too, for about $20. Keep in mind Abundant Life is also a church, and they offer worship services on-site. Don't be surprised (or afraid) if you wake to the sound of the congregation speaking in tongues! *Around 10 minutes from Lusaka center there's Makeni Guesthouse which is quite a relaxed guesthouse run by Jane. The rooms are basic but clean. It's got a nice relaxed feel to it and weirdly for this part of the world, has no public bar which is a welcome break if you want somewhere quieter. *For more of a hotel feel, try '''The Ndeke Hotel''' for about $45 night. The rooms have double beds and satellite TV, and the hotel features a nice pool, a good bar, and a clean restaurant. *Cresta Golfview Hotel is a great place with everything to offer the modest traveler. * WikiPedia:Lusaka Dmoz:Regional Africa Zambia Localities Lusaka Commons:Category:Lusaka

huge game

mall, opened in 2000, and the reception was huge. GAME Stores, the South African version of Walmart, is the anchor, and the mall also features some high-end boutiques, a bookshop, a Subway restaurant, some memorabilia shops, and after expansion a wide range of shops (supermarket, general store, clothes, jewelry, books, interior design, electronics, and food places with outside seating). * '''Arcades'''. The capital's second mall, featuring a relatively cheap Spar supermarket, where you can find your Western food goods. There are also cinemas (Ster-Kinokor) with air-con and a lot of space when watching a movie. A ticket is around 34 ZMW (half that price on weekdays). Right next to the cinema there is a bowling alley with a pretty good standard, and they also do disco-bowling in the late evening. There is a Sunday market on every Sunday (handicraft, clothes, plants) across parts of the parking lots. * '''Kabwata Cultural Village''', Burma Road. Shopping with a more "African" feel, with dozens of curio-makers and salesmen. You will quickly learn that "looking is free," but the goods are not. Be prepared to spend a while, and don't be afraid to dicker. * '''Dutch Reformed Church Market'''. Held on the last Saturday of each month and has been going for several years. There you can buy an assortment of curios, books and Art. A special feature is the large number of goods available from other countries such as Congo and Zimbabwe. You can have a light Indian or Chinese meal while children have their faces painted. Look for stand selling products made from recycled glass bottles and handicrafts made by people with disabilities. * WikiPedia:Lusaka Dmoz:Regional Africa Zambia Localities Lusaka Commons:Category:Lusaka

if you are looking for an 'African' market experience - its just east of the main downtown area.

Lusaka

'''Lusaka''' is the capital (capital city) and largest city of Zambia. One of the fastest-developing cities in Southern Africa, Lusaka is located in the southern part of the central plateau at an elevation of about 1,300 metres (4,265 feet). As of 2010, the city's population is about 1.7 million. Lusaka is the centre of both commerce and government in Zambia and connects to the country's four main highways heading north (Great North Road, Zambia), south (Livingstone Road), east (Great East Road) and west (Great West Road, Zambia). English is the official language of the city, but Nyanja (Chewa language) and Bemba (Bemba language) are also common.
