The Zambian capital, Lusaka is the place to be in the country. It is the unarguable commercial heart of Zambia, where bustling local markets, modern aura and tree-lined boulevards gladded the hearts of those who come to unearth the true verve and vigour of African life. It may not be very big on sightseeing, and it is essentially the charm of the place people count on when they plan a tour to the lovely Lusaka. Nevertheless, there are certain tourist-interest venues that are truly remarkable. The Kabwata Cultural Village, with its indigenous arts and crafts, is a must visit for culture vultures. The Munda Wanga Botanical Gardens and Zoo is another highlight of Lusaka holidays.
Kenneth Kaunda International Airport, also known as the Lusaka International Airport, is an international airport in Lusaka, Zambia and a key aviation hub in southern Africa. The airport is located around 14kms northeast of Lusaka CBD and has the capacity to handle approximately two million passengers annually. Taxi is the most popular means to travel to and from the airport. Even car rental agencies maintain their representatives at the airport. The airport also has a fine set of passenger facilities that include post office, bank, auto exchange machine, restaurants, cafeterias, bars and duty free shop.
Lusaka is a busy aviation hub with a number of carriers offering flight tickets to the city from several parts of the globe. Apart from being a prominent business hub of Zambia, it has also been potent tourist charmer for tourists in the region. Talking specifically about the United Kingdom, a number of airlines offer flights to Lusaka from various airports of the European country. Most frequencies can be seen from London Heathrow, with some of the globe's key operators offering air tickets to Lusaka from LHR. Lufthansa, Emirates, Kenya Airways, British Airways and Air France are some popular carriers running air services to Lusaka from UK's busiest airport.
There are enough accommodation options in Zambia's Lusaka. Hotels are spread out all over the city, although there is a specific concentration in tourist centric areas. In the central part of the city, around the Rhodes Park, there are heaps of mid-range and hi-end properties available for travellers. A number of hotels can also be found near the international airport of the city. Taj Pamodzi Hotel, Radisson Blu Hotel Lusaka and InterContinental Lusaka are among the prominent hotels that score with luxury tourists who are spending money on flights to the city. A host of cheap, budget choices are also available in Lusaka.
Travel operators and experts agree that the best time to visit Lusaka is the dry season (May to November). The climatic conditions during the months are very pleasant, with slightly cooler weather being experienced during May to August within the dry period. It is also the period when animal sightseeing becomes more pronounced. Undoubtedly, this is the ideal time to get aboard flights to Zambia. December to April is warm and wet, and not many keen vacationers seem inclined to book tickets for a journey during this period. Tourist-centric activities are restricted as well, making this an off-peak tourist season. Of course, cheap airfares are easy to come by this time of the year.
