The primary commercial and urban centre in this eastern district, Chipata is a fast-growing, traffic-clogged town in a valley surrounded by a fertile agricultural region. For travellers, it's simply a stop on the way to South Luangwa National Park or Malawi, which is only 30km away. There are a few decent accommodation options, petrol stations, ATMs and several large shopping malls with restaurant chains and supermarkets to stock up on food and other supplies.
