About the neighbourhood
Lusaka is an easy to negotiate town which has tremendously developped in the past 10 years. The choice of restaurant is now substantial, the closest of which is a few kilometers from the house. Every Sunday, the Arcade markets offers are large choice of African arts and artifacts. Around Lusaka several attractions are worth a visit such as the elephant orphanage in Lilalyi and the Kalimba reptile farm.
