Flights

Getting around by air

Lusaka International Airport is about 20km north­east of the city centre. Taxis between the airport and central Lusaka cost anywhere from ZMW200 to ZMW250. There’s no airport bus but the upmarket hotels send mini­buses (usually for a fee) to meet international flights, so you may be able to arrange a ride into town with the minibus driver (for a negotiable fee).

Arriving at the airport there are ATMs, foreign-exchange booths, car-rental offices and mobile-phone companies selling SIM cards. For departures, once through security for international flights, there's a restaurant and basic bar, and a couple of shops selling curios.
