The Lusaka Province region

Lusaka is the gate to a wonderful genuine Africa. Experience the most comfortable side of that Africa, right on the ranch. Further afield, the country and the regions offer unlimited possibilities. Experience one of the 7 wonders of the natural world *** Victoria Falls *** and the accompanying adrenaline sports activities: walking the falls, whitewater rafting, bungee jumping, the Gorge Swing, walking with the lions, riding the elephants, paragliding … Zambia's magnificiant national parks are unspoiled and varied, each offering its own distinctive treasure: Kafue, Lower Zambezi, South Luangwa, Kasanka, Liuwa Plain … Indulge yourself with spectacular wildlife, extraordinary landscape, exciting fishing, birdwatching paradise.


Lusaka is an easy to negotiate town which has tremendously developped in the past 10 years. The choice of restaurant is now substantial, the closest of which is a few kilometers from the house. Every Sunday, the Arcade markets offers are large choice of African arts and artifacts. Around Lusaka several attractions are worth a visit such as the elephant orphanage in Lilalyi and the Kalimba reptile farm.
