Lusaka



Would someone with physical disabilities have difficulties living in this city?

Absolutely, my husband bikes to work sometimes and it is just miserable. No sidewalks, potholes in the street, etc. - Nov 16, 2017
In many ways, yes. There are precious few sidewalks and drivers have very little regard for people with disabilities in parking lots or on the road. Some buildings are constructing ramps and an increasing number of companies (like Pick n Pay) go out of their way to employee deaf, mute, or learning disabled persons. - Jan 4, 2017
Definitely. There are few sidewalks and even fewer ramps in the city. - May 17, 2016
Yes. No sidewalks, few handicapped parking spaces, many steps and few ramps. Difficult or impossible access to many buildings and businesses for those who are physically challenged. - Mar 3, 2015
Um yes - there are no sidewalks. - Aug 22, 2014
Yes, would be very difficult. No real sidewalks, etc... - Jan 29, 2014
There are few accomodations for physical disablities other than the occasional reserved parking slot. Public buildings don't have ramps. Sidewalks, when they exist, are rough and broken. Lusaka would be difficult for people with disablities. - Apr 25, 2013
It's a difficult city to get around in for people with disabilities. Buses are not enabled, there are few sidewalks. - Jul 9, 2010
Even the American School (AIS) isn't accessible!nothing is accessible. - Mar 19, 2009
There are few sidewalks, no ramps, and I imagine it would be very difficult for someone with physical disabilities to get around. - Mar 7, 2009
No accommodation for disabilities. - Oct 5, 2008
Probably - no sidewalks and all the damn doors open inward. - Aug 23, 2008
It would not be easy to get around. - May 18, 2008
