KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Lusaka

  • Car hire in Lusaka is one of the best ways to experience the city and surrounding area. Explore the beauty of the Zambian landscape by driving yourself through real local villages and towns, experiencing how local Zambians live and immersing yourself in this breathtaking country. Self-driving is a way to become transfixed with what Lusaka and Zambia as a whole have to offer. Plus, it's a whole lot easier than trying to figure out the public transport system or barter with local taxi drivers. Many of the far-out places are only accessible through self-driving or expensive tours.
  • Lusaka's Kenneth Kaunda International Airport (LUN) is an ideal spot to pick up your Lusaka car hire because it'll likely be both your arrival and departure point if you're travelling by flight. It's also an easy way to travel roughly 20 km to the city centre. It's recommended that you book your car hire ahead of schedule, to avoid availability issues and save time. Your car hire company will arrange to pick you up at the airport, meeting you in the Arrivals hall.
  • Driving a car hire in Lusaka is quite similar to most other major cities in the world. The traffic in Lusaka is a little heavier than in some countries, but the roads are wide and easy to navigate. If you're driving outside the main city, you'll need to stock up on supplies because petrol stations are few and far between. Travelling at night outside of the city isn't recommended because there tends to be animals on the roads.
  • A difficulty with driving in Lusaka and other parts of Zambia is the poor visibility at night due to the lack of lights. Lusaka is probably the most well-lit city and there's still very little in the way of street lights. When cars break down or there are accidents, drivers put branches on the road behind their cars, but they're still difficult to see at night. If possible, avoid night driving as much as you can.

There are no on-street meters but a fee is generally required. It'll be wise to find a hotel that offers free parking, as parking on the street at night isn't recommended.
