Lusaka



Do you recommend any books or movies about this city/country for those who are interested in learning more?

There is precious little written on Zambia. Check out The Africa House by Christina Lamb for something set in (but not about) Zambia. Maybe avoid Louise Linton's memoir, as it really gets a lot of facts and atmospherics about Zambia wrong (and Zambians really resented the book). - Jan 4, 2017
Unfortunately, there aren't too many books written about Zambia. "Don't Let Us Go to the Dogs Tonight" by Alexandra Fuller is a compelling read but takes place several decades ago. - May 17, 2016
