Pungwe Lodge: Pungwe Lodge in Rhodspark area

Pungwe Lodge is a hotel/guesthouse in the Rhodspark area of Lusaka. It's a quiet and boring area in Lusaka. You have to walk a long way to get to the nearest restaurant. The room was clean, and breakfast was incl. in the price. The price for a big room was 370,000 Kwacha (74 USD).

Eureka Camping Park: Camping outside the city Lusaka

I dont remember it that well, but I do remember the pool and the bar! It was comfortable affordable, and had everything you need. If you don't want to stay right in the city of Lusaka, this would be the place to stay.

        The best place to stay...

        The best place to stay in the Lusaka area is: Lilayi (pronounced 'li-LAI') Lodge, without question. I've listed details below.

        As always, there are varying levels of accommodations. The Pamodzi ($120 USD), the Hotel Intercontinental ($110 USD), and the Holiday Inn ($100 USD) are the high-end places. Of these, I recommend the Holiday Inn because it has the best retaurant of the three (The Golden Spur--A South African version of Tex-Mex (huh?!)) and because it is marginally cheaper than the others.

        Mid-scale lodging (~$45 USD) include two places that I know. First is the Lusaka Hotel directly in the center of downtown. It's a comfortable sleep, but unless you have transportation prearranged, I wouldn't venture out at night from there. The second place is pretty wonderful, and I recommend it if you can afford it. It is called the Fairview. It's set on the north side of Independence Avenue, in one of the greener, residential sections of town. It has a patio that is the only one I know of in Lusaka that is upstairs and outside.

        If you are planning on camping, then Eureka campgrounds are the place to be. They are located outside of the city, about 15 Km southwest, a straight shot south on Cairo Road, which turns into Kafue Road after the last roundabout in town. They'll be on the left. There's a small white sign that says Eureka, and then you will have to pitch and roll over some dirt roads for a spell. They have hot running water, and clean facilities. And there's a nice watering hole there, really kind of family-oriented. From my experience, regular patrons of the place were not too keenly embracing of Black Zambians, though.
        The price is reasonable (~$80 USD), nay, excellent for the value of the accommodations. You get more than your money's worth.

        Lilayi Lodge is set in a small game reserve with giraffes, at least a dozen species of antelope, including the great Kudu, my favorite, and zebra, monkeys, and assorted other wildlife. When I really needed respite, I stayed there, woke up with dawn, and drank coffee and conversed with the Vervet monkeys scrambling around my hut. Gorgeous setting for sunset refreshments also. No TV, which is a plus!
