If your are arriving to Lusaka using one of the usual forms of transport. Eg. Bus from Livingstone or Chipata, then all the taxi drivers will know where we are located. A taxi from the bus station to Lusaka Backpackers will cost around $5.00 (K25,000)
If your feeling like a walk, from the Bus Station if you head to Church Road and turn Right on the main road (Levy Junction should be in front of you) past the Green Police Station, at the traffic lights you turn left, then right at the 4 way stop, we are down the first road on your left.
If you were to just end up somewhere in Lusaka, like maybe you hitched in, then you would have to make sure that the taxi knows that we are off Bwinjimfumu Rd. and not on Cha Cha Cha rd.

Located Near

We are conveniently located in the central area of Lusaka, being only a 20 min walk from both the bus and train station, a 10 min. walk from Northmead shopping centre and craft market and about a 30 min walk from most of the embassies. We have cab's waiting outside all day to take you even further.
