Lusaka is one of the fastest-growing cities in central Africa, with a sprawling downtown area, high-walled suburbs, busy shanty towns, bustling markets and large industrial areas, bringing together people of many nationalities and making it a bustling center for economic, political and cultural activities. With the focus around a sixties style grand avenue of tower blocks and surrounded by shanties, the town really has very little to offer in the way of sights and yet can be a fascinating place to explore. The main reason to stay here, however, is to catch an early departing flight.
