Kapiri mposhi is situated in the Central part of Zambia. It is 201 kilometres from Lusaka and 117 kilometres from Ndola. The town is also fondly referred to as Kapiri.
Being a transit town for both rail and road users, the town is a hype of activity that makes it never sleep.
The road network takes you to three destinations; the copperbelt and Congo Dr, Northern Zambia and Tanzania and thirdly, Lusaka and the countries down south.
Because of its central location, it receives a lot of visitors who are en route. Most of the buses stop here for refreshments.
It connects Zambia Railways line from Kitwe through Lusaka to Livingstone. It is also here that you can board TAZARA (Tanzania Zambia Railway Authority) and travel up to Kasama and end up at Nakonde in the north of Zambia.
But if you don’t mind you can even find yourself at Dar-es-Salaam in Tanzania, a journey of 1, 870 kilometres from Kapiri!
TAZARA in Tanzania is also called Uhuru, a Swahili word for Freedom.
Last time I was at Kapiri I sported a few lodges and motels. And here are a few places offering accommodation: Among such ones are Unity Motel, Mimis Executive Guest Lodge and Eros lodge.
If you want to be near by the road, Unity Motel or Eros lodge could be ideal for you. Off the main road there are some nice places worth visiting as well.
