Modern and historical
Lusaka is one of the fastest growing cities in Africa and for this reason it is has become a melting pot of cultures and traditions.
One one hand, for instance, you can visit the stunning Market of Lusaka with over 400 stalls selling everything you can think of. On the other hand, you can visit Manda Hill, a modern shopping mall filled with specialised stores.
Streets with modest-looking homes exist right next to other streets filled with huge houses with well cared-for gardens.
The best way to appreciate Lusaka is to simply walk down its streets and marvel at the city's unique personality which stems from its immense population and its diversity of cultures and nationalities.
If you go shopping, start your tour at Cairo Street, the city's main business area!
