Lusaka is the capital of Zambia; it’s a non-descript city of about 1.5 million people that bustles in the day and rolls up at night.
In recent years, Lusaka has become a popular urban settlement for Zambians and tourists alike.
Its mostly stable government and improved infrastructure sector have increased donor confidence
and as such Zambians are seeing some signs of development. Nevertheless, it is estimated that
the nation’s economy still depends on foreign support for about half of it revenue.
In the country’s northwest is the Chinese-built-and-managed Chambishi copper mine.
