From checking in to departing all was first class . Room was superb. Breakfast excellent. Dining options limited due to the Covid but really no complaints. Always nice to sit around the garden pool and check the crocodiles out . I always enjoy my stay there. Excellent Hotel manager who’s always on hand to make sure everything is working properly. See you soon 👍

I travelled to Lusaka for a 2 day meeting and I was recommended to stay at Southern Sun Ridgeway. I did not have many time to walk around but the hotel is located in a very safe and calm area. The rooms are very nice and well organized. One aspect that I liked was the decoration of the room..very modern and following the trends. The breaksfast was wonderful with a plenty of options and everday there was something new. The buffet that the hotel prepares every Tuesday is awesome and delicious. Definitely Southern Sun Ridgeway is a very nice option to stay in Lusaka.

On my way back to Nairobi from the Lake Kariba Siavonga, and since I had to catch the 2.00am flight back to Nairobi on the morning of the 30th January, I got a room to freshen up, eat and rest before heading to the Airport at Lusaka. I chose the Southern Sun Ridgeway whose location was ideal for accessing the Lusaka CBD and not far from the airport. My room was superb very very neat and quiet and very relaxing. I had a wonderful dinner in their restaurant which was packed, and even met one of their friendly service staff who had lived in same area that I live Kenya. The airport transfer was smooth and on time in one of their spacious shuttles. A very warm and welcoming place to stay in.
