A travel desk is also available where the guests can book onward adventure trips. But if you want to go out exploring the city, Lusaka has some excellent places where you can relax, go out eating, drinking, or simply go shopping. The hub of life in Lusaka is centered on the shopping malls and the city centre itself.

Try out the Pakati Sunday market which is organized by the Arcades Shopping Centre right at the shopping centre itself. The market is a congregation of the locals within Lusaka and from neighboring areas who gather to sell their wares which includes carvings, fabrics, art works and jewellery. The Arcades Shopping Centre is along the Great East road.

Check some of their reviews...

“Excellent hostel, very friendly and welcoming. Nice pool and bar with areas to sit in the sun or the shade. Good mosquito nets to the beds. Good on-site restaurant with a limited but well-cooked menu. It’s a shame more people don't take more than an overnight break, they are missing a fun place.”

“A bit of tranquillity in the heart of Lusaka.”

“The staff was helpful. The swimming pool is a refreshing surprise!”

“The dinners were very tasty! Overall, a really nice experience.”

“There was a little kitchen for cooking that was pretty clean, and the restaurant even let me use their hot sauce. The staff was helpful (John) and they have nice maps of the area for guests. Nice big shopping centre with 2 supermarkets in walking distance. It's also near the bus station.”
