While at Zinga's, feel free to make use of their outside kitchen, local knowledge, free WiFi and pool. With their location close to the mighty Victoria Falls and Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, why not try a bungee jump or walking safari?

How to get there

Zinga Backpackers is an easy walk or drive from the city centre. Follow the main road (Mosi-oa-Tunya Rd) to the north, towards Lusaka. Turn right at Katete Avenue, take the first left into Centenary Street, and the first right into Magoye Road. You'll find us at #25: look for the brightly painted garden wall, a meter from a local market were you can do and also integrate with the locals.

We are 1 km away from town but if you don, t want to walk you can always share a taxi with other people just outside the backpackers and that will coast you less than $1 to get into town.

If you are going to the falls, we do offer free transport to the falls every morning, just after our free zinga breakfast.

Nearest airport: 5KM
