No trains, tubes or trams. Public transport in Lusaka is poor. Where will you be staying? How long are you there for? I'm guessing you are there for work? The standard blue taxis will be your best option. Always agree the fare before you get in. Your hosts should be able to give you an idea of what the taxi costs should be as the cabbies do try and rip you off if you're not a local. I love Lusaka and the people. Good luck

Thankyou for your reply about Taxi

It's good information to have.

We are travelling there for a holiday.

Any places you would suggest we visit ?.

What's the temperature like in Early September we are there for almost 2 weeks.

To be honest there isn't much to do in Lusaka. Typical city, busy with crazy traffic. There is the cultural village in Kabwata, Lusaka museum, mundawanga gardens, a weekend Curios market and Arcades shopping mall. All this can be done in a couple days. Why not travel down to gorgeous Livingstone for a few days and see the falls, admittedly not so full at that time of year but still a wonder. Also loads more touristy stuff to do there and you could even cross over into Zimbabwe for a day or two. Lusaka would not be my first choice to visit. Temperatures in September hover around 30 degrees centigrade. Have fun.

Hi Purple,

Are you planning on spending the full 2 weeks in Lusaka? Or are you just there overnight/transiting before going to another location (eg Victoria Falls, a National Park etc?). Unless there is a reason that you have to be in Lusaka I would not really recommend it as a "holiday' destination...

If you are in Zambia for 2 weeks I really hope that you consider visiting one of its magnificent national parks such as Kafue or South Luangwa.

Please be careful in Lusaka, Zambia, especially in cairo road, town, manda hill and most crowded areas.

Local zambia youngsters targeted your mobile phone & wallets...

Now, situation is worst in lusaka, in my case some group of strangers taken my mobile phone in my front pocket in Manda Hill bus stop on 07th august 2017,

So, Please visitors be careful and cover with jacket or keep mobile in safely place.. Police are very less in lusaka..

Thanks...

Sathish K, thanks for the warning. It is almost as bad in London.

One has to be sensible and keep their valuables secure wherever they are. I must admit Cairo Road is an area I always avoid.
