    I love this studio. I went to Lusaka in May 2023 and again in September 2023. And a few times already in 2024. Every time, i visit this Gallery. I brought friends with me who also enjoyed it. The curator and staff are all so friendly and welcoming, with stories of all the artists. The little restaurant has great food and the gift shop had some really nice things that I purchased for myself and as gifts. My biggest excitement was a painting that I purchased, the most money I have ever spent on a piece of art. A painting by Emmanual Chibaye, colorful and amazing, In addition the same artist creates incredible prieces that are all pen and ink on paper. I have also become a huge fan of their jewelry shop, I always find something I just don't want to leave behind. If you don't want to carry your artwork on a plane, they will carefully package it and ship it. The best is that you will always find yourself.wanting to return. Also, know if there are any issues with your purchases, they will do everything to fix it, they care about their clients and the enjoyment the gallery and art brings to all who visit.

    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.

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

    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

    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.

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

    Parking is tight but after that the mall itself is spacious and easy to navigate.

    Wide selection of shops offering almost anything you might want or need.

    Worth the time even if only to browse.
