Zambia, a landlocked, peace haven in Southern Africa, with a population of about ten million, attained political independence from Britain in 1964 and adopted a predominantly socialist development agenda. Beginning in 1991, however, Zambia has been undergoing a political transition from one-party rule to multi-party democracy. Zambia has pursued policies of economic liberalization and structural reform programs that have transformed her from being a centrally-planned and controlled economy to one of the more open market economies in Africa. Free universal basic education for every child in Zambia and access to health services as close to the family as possible are continuing to be emphasized. In addition, the President has commenced an unprecedented politically driven “zero tolerance for corruption” campaign to get at the roots of corruption in Zambia and is engaging in constitutional reforms to address issues of governance.

The World Bank classifies Zambia as a severely indebted, low-income country and, in terms of basic development progress, it is ranked 153 out of 173 countries in the 2002 UN Human Development Report. At 78% of the population, Zambia has one of the highest percentages of people living below the poverty line in the world. Zambia has much to improve on. Recent political and economic changes in the Zambian environment have opened new opportunities for taking a fresh look at developing a responsive strategy.

The Kabwata Cultural Center is the place where you can buy cheaper hand-carved crafts and curios.

The most appealing factor to many who have made Lusaka their home is the superb climate. Warm sunny summers, interspersed with cooling thunderstorms and mild winters with loads of sunshine.

It can get very hot between October and March if there’s no rain. The average rainfall, between November and April, is about 950mm. Summer temperatures range from 20 degrees to 32 degrees C. Winter temperatures from 10 degrees to about 26 degrees. Humidity is usually below 40%.

   Restaurants and Nightlife

There are upmarket clubs and restaurants in the suburbs but many roadside shebeens offer a closer experience of how Zambians “get in the groove” and dance the night away to the sounds of rhumba, kwela, hip hob, or R&B

Retaurants-Shetaz, coffee shops, take aways, night clubs, pubs as well as their phone numbers contact travel agencies and hotels.

Travel Agencies in Lusaka

   Shopping

Most of the banks and many bureaux de change can be found along Cairo Road.

For groceries and general supplies, there are several shopping malls, two along the Great East Road, two on the Kafue road south of the city and out out towards Leopards hill. There are several suburban shopping centres, not of the mall type, but with a variety of shops that usually supply anything you need, mostly imported from Zimbabwe or South Africa and a little pricey. These are called Kabulonga, Northmead and Woodlands.

If not for shopping, but just for the experience of how the local masses shop, a visit to one of Lusaka’s markets is a must. It’s an interesting experience and well worth a visit, if just for the colourful and lively atmosphere. The Soweto Market is two roads west of Cairo Road, and the other opposite the Tazara building in Independence Ave. A new, smarter, roofed market has just been built along Freedom Way.
