Travel Tips from people who've been to Lusaka
Take a visa card, there is only one bank in the city where you can draw out money using a mastercard!
If you are in need of a break there is a Ster-Kinekor cinema at Arcades Mall on the Great East Road (after Manza Hill but before UNZA going east and out of town). It has releases the same time as South Africa and is reasonably priced.
