Location Information

Kalulu Backpackers Lusaka
20 Broads Road

Kalulu Backpackers Lusaka is located on Briads Road, just off Bwinjimfumu Road. We are just ten minutes walk from the Intercity Bus Station and the City Centre. Manda Hill Shopping Centre is within walking distance of the hostel and is also accessible by minibus from the Great East Riad, as is Arcades Shopping Centre. The nearest market is at Northmead, a short walk away, where you can find food, bars and even do some souvenier shopping.

The bustling chaos of Lusaka city has been described as having a charm that is just Zambia. Although a bit short on the typical tourist attractions, the capital offers plenty for those looking to explore the everyday sights and sounds of an African city as well as providing some welcome home comforts you might be missing from life on the road. Our staff will be happy to give you directions or organize transport for you. They can also provide recommendations to local restaurants and bars.
