I worked in Zambia for almost three years.

Mainly out in the remote bush, but I did get to spend a few months in Lusaka. Its like most major African cities, big, dusty, noisy and very busy. The roads are mostly in good condition, but the traffic can be hectic, and the guys there drive pretty badly. Traffic rules are just a guideline.

I felt a LOT safer walking around Lusaka than I do in just about any city in SA. The people are generally very friendly, helpful. There are a couple of malls that have the usual shops that you would find in SA; Game, Shoprite, Pep, KFC, Nando's, Mr Price, etc.

If you get the chance to visit or work in Zambia, take it. Its really worth the experience.

Also try ping knopkop, I think he is working in Lusaka at the moment...
Young enough to know I can, old enough to know I shouldn't, stupid enough to do it anyway.

Dusty, probeer vir Knopkop op Whatsapp kontak.  Ek weet hy kom deesdae nie so baie hier op die forum nie want die werk hou hom maar besig...

As jy nie sy nommer het nie, PM my, dan stuur ek hom vir jou!  :thumleft:

Hallo...........

Zambia is 'n lekker plek!!

Dis net soos Suid Afrika, maar sonder daai kak attitude!!

I live in Lusaka now, I have been here since April, Lusaka is like Mr Zog says, 'n big busy African city. To sum it up in a way is to say it like this: Lusaka is not Zambia, just as South Africa is not Africa........... if you understand what I mean.

The people are great, friendly and generally have a very good attitude. The race issue is not a big deal here at all like it is in South Africa, you see many black / white couples, much more than you will ever see in SA. There is really not that much to do here though, that is the down side. I bought a bike in SA that I rode to Zambia in 3 days last week via Botswana and Zimbabwe, I want to go and explore the dirt roads around Lusaka and towards Kafue and Kariba, but time is always the issue. Work is hectic busy.

You have pretty much everything you have in SA in terms of chain stores, like PnP, Shoprite, Edgars, Markhams, Mr Price, PEP, Jet, Food Lovers Market, Spar, Mugg & Bean, Wimpy, Spur, Milky Lane, Steers, Debonairs, Ocean Basket, Rhapsodies, News Cafe etc etc, this is all limited to Lusaka though, in the Copperbelt and Livingstone you might get a few bigger shops, but nothing like in Lusaka. Other towns like Kafue, Kasama, Chipate, Kitwe, Solwezi, Kabwe, Siavonga are all not much more that large villages.....

Lusaka is where everything is.

Alles wat jy se is wat ek ook gehoor het.  Ek het gegoogle en hulle het tot 'n Honda, Suzuki en Yamaha dealer daar.   :biggrin:  Lyk hulle spesialiseer meer in die plaasfietse.  En blykbaar is hulle malls huge en hulle kry 'n nuwe lughawe en en en.  

En ek het altyd gedink die res van Afrika, behalwe vir ons klompie hier in die Suide is donker.  Ah!  Toe nie!   :)  Net weird om te dink daar is nie 'n see nie.
