#TourismTuesdays| Lusaka 100

As you drive down Great East Road and other main roads in Lusaka, you may have  noticed the Lusaka 100 banners to commemorate the 100th anniversary of our capital city. The official events kicked off last weekend and continue through to the end of the month. In honor of Lusaka 100, we’re sharing some of our favorite Lusaka inspired things and sites

Ama Local is a travel site which features reviews about restaurants, offers advice on fun things to do in all 10 provinces. According to the site, “ Amalocal’ is city lingo that combines English and a local derivative ‘them/ us’ to define identified persons. Examples would include “amaboys’ referring to young males, ‘amadaddies’ referring to mature men, ‘amaladies’ being smart women, etc, etc. ’Am a local’ is a play on ‘amalocal’ to include the visitor who would read the English/ American version- I am a local/ Am a local!!”

The site is divided into categories such as ‘Arts and Culture’, ‘Festivals and Events’, ‘Bars and Restaurants’ and more. Visit the Lusaka section here.
