Lusaka, the capital city of Zambia, is the country's biggest urban sprawl and perhaps the most bustling one. The city's 'African-ness' is the obvious charmer with many falling prey to Lusaka's inherent desire to live big. While the conformist may find the city devoid of any regular tourist charms, those who crave to feel rather than see will most definitely be a happy lot after spending a day or two in Lusaka. This Zambian city is more about genuine African feel than historical treasures or grand monuments! Modernity is slowly but surely rolling over the expanse, with a large number of fast food outlets and swanky new shops coming up in the area. Of course, there are few sightseeing opportunities in the city as well. Lusaka Museum, the Cultural Village at Kabwata and the Munda Wanga Botanical Gardens are few opportunities for travellers to conform to traditional touristy experiences.
Tourism infrastructure is not the biggest of strengths for Lusaka but there are options enough for holiday makers who are looking for accommodation alternatives in the city. As far as the best time to visit Lusaka is concerned, most believe it is the cooler and drier months of May to August. Even the period between September and November is an opportune time to board flights to Lusaka. December to April is best avoided as it is hot and humid.
