Local Transport

Local minibuses run along Lusaka’s main roads, but there are no route numbers or destination signs, so the system is difficult to work out. There is also a confusing array of bus and minibus stations.

Otherwise it is possible to flag down a minibus along a route. For instance, from the South End Roundabout, the ‘Kabulonga’ minibus goes along Independence Ave to Longacres Roundabout and then heads back towards the city along Los Angeles Blvd and Church Rd; the ‘Chakunkula’ or ‘Chelston’ minibus shuttles down Kafue Rd to Kafue town; and the ‘Chilanga’ minibus heads to Chilanga, via Kafue Rd. The standard fare is ZMW2 to ZMW3.
