Kitwe Things to Do

    If possible, visit the smelter and go underground: failing that, visit Mindola Pit where, if there are still good rock exposures you can dig out small geodes of pseudomalachite.

    Watch them pour slag at night.

    Visit the geologically much older, and pretty, copper occurrences at Tinker's Claims, south of Kitwe along the Kafue River.

Kitwe Restaurants

    Just wanted to say that l used to have the restaurant at the squash club seven years ago. IThe restaurant was called Rack-A-Teers. Renowned for the best steaks in town and quality, quanity and value for money. I trained the staff very well and had developed a good choice of menu. Steaks to Poultry to Fish to Seafood.
    Always had good feed back. Hopefully the restaurant is still going well.

    I always hear good reports about this place. Its called the Squash Club because it used to be the canteen to the actual squash club (so I'm told). Indoor and outdoor seating...great for the hot evenings. Mainly steaks, salads and pasta. Good quality food for a decent price. Make sure you're clear about how you like your steak. Us Zambians tend to like things well done.

    Favorite Dish: Fillet steak, pepper sauce and salad with a generous portion of french fries.

    When I was at high school, this was my favourite restaurant. If you love Indian food, then you'll love this place. The dishes are aromatic and absolutely delicious. The portions are generous but not too much so that you can enjoy a 3-course meal. The decor is authentic and not tacky like some restaurants can be. Comfortable seating.

    Favorite Dish: I can't remember the name but it was spicey meatballs stuffed with spinach in a yummy gravy with greenpeppers. Served on a bed of rice.

    DO NOT use any public transport in Kitwe unless you are suicidal! Honestly, the vehicles are not roadworthy and the drivers are not the most safety conscious. Its best to hire a car or drive around with family or friends.

    Please use your common sense whenever you travel anywhere in Zambia. Lock your car, house, etc. Don't leave anything obvious to temptation for thieves and pickpockets and keep any eye on your valuables.
