We were very pleasantly surprised by KuOmboko Hostel in Lusaka, Zambia. We book a private room doubled bed for only 24$/night (shared bathroom). The hostel is well-equipped: laundry facilities, a fun and lively bar (that brings in more locals than guests), a 24 hour internet cafe, safe and secure rooms, a flexible restaurant (they will get very creative to aid vegetarians), and most importantly -- a terrific, friendly, and helpful staff. The place feels secure and is somewhat clean (although prepare for lots of little creepy crawlers and bugs in the shared area). For the money, this is a terrific bet and one that won't "bite" too hard on your pocketbook...
Plot 9926, Mankanta Close, P.O.Box 33284, Lusaka, Zambia
Lusaka is not a necessarily a great place to visit but it was wonderful to live there.
The people are great, warm and friendly.
Whilst the Falls and safaris tend to attract everyone's attention a weekend in Lusaka could be fun.
Start a Friday night with a 20z quality Zambeef steak at the Marlin restaurant which is in the Lusaka club. It is a step back in time but the garlic or black pepper steak is sublime.
Then head to Browns which may not be a salubrious joint but is busy on a Friday and has a mixed clientele. Have a bottle of Mosi and a Rumba dance.
Lusaka Club is off the roundabout on Los Angeles Boulevard.
It can be accessed from Lusaka, but covers nearly the same area as Belgium, this is the largest park in Zambia and one of the biggest in the world.
With a terrain ranging from the lush riverine forest of the Kafue River to the vast grassland of the Busanga Plains, the park rewards wildlife enthusiasts with glimpses of a generous variety of carnivores and an abundance of their prey.
