About the neighbourhood
Lusaka is an easy to negotiate town which has tremendously developped in the past 10 years. The choice of restaurant is now substantial, the closest of which is a few kilometers from the house. Every Sunday, the Arcade markets offers are large choice of African arts and artifacts. Around Lusaka several attractions are worth a visit such as the elephant orphanage in Lilalyi and the Kalimba reptile farm.
How to get there
From Lusaka, take Leopard Hill road, drive straight for 17 km from the Engen station at the CrossRoad Mall. Pass the police control gate, continue straight, passing the two cell phone towers, and up hill, just at the top take a left at the star. Drive 1.4 km straight to the gate on the right side through the game fence. Inside the property follow the signs to Porcupine Palace.
