    Great opportunity to get anything and everything you would ever need for home, family, and friends to remember your trip. Purses. Backpacks. Carved animals. Stuffed animals. Beaded and paper mache necklaces. Bowls. Baskets. Paintings. So much more.

    Nearly everything you see will be in another stall. WALK THROUGH FIRST BEFORE BUYING ANYTHING!!! Know prices to know how to haggle. I never lost a sale at my price once saying no and walking away.

    I find the East Park Shopping Mall more appealing to shoppers now, since the new extension of the eastern wing, and the wide selection of shops, restaurants, and entertainment places.
    The mall is very spacious and airy. Good parking space and a good choice of shops and supermarkets. It's an all weather friendly places with lots going on - a real one stop shop mall.
    I highly recommend it.

    The service times on both the roadside notice board and the website showed a service starting at 10:15am, which is when I arrived. However it was in the middle of the very interesting sermon.
    Nonetheless, I had a beautiful morning worshipping the Lord in a congregation doing the same. Praises filled the huge cathedral. Go along and experience the cathedral - while there’s a service in progress. After all, the service is the reason for the church.

    Great shop with jewelry, textiles, coffee, books, art work, etc. Everything you need to bring gifts home. High quality items and prices are reasonable.

    This lovely little gallery is a hidden gem on Middleway Road in Lusaka. You wouldn't know from the exterior, but when you enter, you are greeted with walls of exquisite modern art. I was impressed by the playful nature of much of the art, and especially enjoyed sitting with a delicious cappuccino by an ancient jasmine bush. This gallery is associated with the stArt foundation which seems to do good works. The adjacent Jagoda gem gallery is also magnificent with its collection of quartz, tanzanite, aquamarine, tourmaline, garnet, emerald, amethyst, citrine, etc. I was reminded of the amazing mineral room at the Harvard Museum of Natural History, Just standing there in the peaceful gallery makes one ponder the tetrahedral structure of the silicate building block that forms so many gemstones. The entire space is a fantastic experience for art lovers in Lusaka.

    Continues to be one of the best weekly markets in Lusaka. Artisans come from various parts of the country to sell their goods. What I love is that there are so many different types of art available. You can find a giant chess board made with Zambian woods or stones, the unique impression of a particular painter on Zambia village life, clothing, curious, and almost anything that is sure to bring delight to your loved ones back home. If you are in Zambia on a Sunday, you must go.

    If you are interested in History then you will find it very exciting. The museum is small. The main part is on the 1st floor. Please make sure you take a guide who will explain in detail which will get more interesting.
    Only issue is that for foreign nationals the entry fee is 135 K which is quite high. So go only if keen

    I loved that there were actually animals or reptiles on property.. we had visited several places that week and they were just lackluster at best. The reptile park was full of snakes and crocs and birds and reptiles... I almost passed out when we saw the Boas. The guide asked me if I wanted to take a photo of holding one of the humongous snakes!!!!! No thank you! It was worth the money we spent though. I would definitely visit this park if you are a reptilian lover. You can also buy alligator and crop meat to cook. It is in the freezer inside where you pay. We didn't purchase any, because we don't know how to cook or prepare it. Happy reptiling!

    In the park itself we only saw a couple of impala and a dazzle of about 9 zebras.
    However the discovery centre was excellent. We were really impressed! It’s interactive and very informative. The elephant nursery feeding time was interesting and we enjoyed hearing their stories and learning about them.

    Very limited shops, but good restaurants. On Sunday you have people selling Africa stuff which is very good but have to bargain for everything.

    Well it's very beautiful and has got a nice ambience.. only that they don't allow music in some areas which is a shame.. it's cool and the people are nice maybe if they added some other activities as well
