Zambia’s capital is a relatively laid-back city with few sightseeing highlights, but there are relaxing places to stay and recharge the batteries after a tiring safari or long-haul, overnight flight into Zambia. BA run a direct service between Heathrow and Lusaka, where there are some pleasant accommodations to enjoy a calm one night stay, usually outside of the chaotic city centre itself. In the city, there are occasional charming, tree lined European-style boulevards, as well as markets and a couple of underwhelming museums and galleries.
Most people will want to just spend a night in Lusaka at the beginning or end of an itinerary, perhaps not leaving their accommodation. It is reassuring then that there are some attractive overnight options, from an African styled, modern boutique guesthouse in the suburbs to a relaxing, unpretentious bush camp outside the city. Whatever your choice, you should leave refreshed after a good night’s sleep and relaxed breakfast.
