Siavonga Town of Lusaka Region

Very Much Impressed - the place is real refreshing and a very suitable place for hard working people to come and destress after working hard. its vegetation is out of this world. the lake is so beautiful

Nice - Lusaka is very "South African", with stores and restuaraunts that would be very familiar and recognisable to South Africans.

Siavonga Town of Lusaka Region

Siavonga? Depends on What You're Looking For - Located on the Zambian side of Lake Kariba, Siavonga is the poor sister to its counterpart across the lake in Zimbabwe. There are a small number of resorts that dot the shoreline, overlooking sweeping views of the lake and offering a peaceful refuge from what was likely a long and arduous drive. No matter which side you're on, this man-made lake is beautiful, a literal oasis in the bush, especially in the hot dry winter months. That said, getting in and out of Siavonga is a constant reminder of where you are: Zambia is a country where the vast majority live on less than R8 per day. This poverty cannot be missed as you wind your way down into Siavonga Town on a dusty road surrounded by huts and shacks. In essence, real Africa will likely back right up to your hotel as you pass through the gates to a resort that shelters guests from what exists outside the walls. As a result, your time in Siavonga will likely be limited to what your hotel provides in terms of food, tours, boats, etc. Sheltered resorts in a developing country are hardly unique to Zambia, however, those who choose to vacation in Lake Kariba have two choices - scruffy Siavonga or its well developed competition, Kariba, just a short drive across the border in Zimbabwe. Siavonga is the cheaper of the two options, but it will never let you forget that you are living lavishly in an impoverished community that subsists outside the gates. So should you go to Siavonga? It depends on what you're looking for in your Africa vacation.

More than you imagine - I spend a fair bit of time in Lusaka, and I grew rather fond of the city. It's pretty much an Africa city like so many others, with it's very evident distinction between the affluent and the poor, but I felt a sense that things are changing, and the city is growing for the better. It has it's share of entertainment too!
