Health & safety
Like most African cities, pickpockets take advantage of crowds, so be alert in the markets and bus stations and along the busy streets immediately west of Cairo Rd. At night, most streets are dark and often empty, so even if you’re on a tight budget, take a taxi. If you have your own wheels, be aware that the incidence of armed carjacking is on the rise in Lusaka.
Police (991; Church Rd)
Good options include the private clinics Care for Business (254396; Addis Ababa Rd) and Corpmed (222612; Cairo Rd), behind Barclays Bank. For evacuations, both clinics work with Specialty Emergency Services (273303).
