Improved compared to years ago
It was good despite mosquitos in room which was surprising and there was not repellent. Rooms were clean. Services were a bit slow

Southern Sun Ridgeway is beautiful. I’ve been going there for many years. It’s now all been remodeled and updated, which it needed. Sadly, due to Covid, many of the old familiar faces are no longer to be seen. And it seems to me like some of the new staff, at least in dining for example, don’t get “service” as well as they should. But the food is fine and my housekeeper kept my room spotless during my five night stay. It’s quiet and peaceful. I very much recommend it.

Great Lusaka hotel
Another great stay. Staff are great and rooms are clean and comfortable. Only down side to my stay was the fact there was no draught beer! Also not great to see (or use) plastic sticks for the tea and coffee. In this day and age it’s really not what you expect. Replace with metal spoons and look at eco friendly options to replace all of the plastic, including all of the miniature toiletries
