Well, two years means you will experience both the hot and wet season and the cold and dry season. Wet season is from October to March and temperatures at this time of the year can go as high as 40 degrees Celsius. The cold season is from around May to July and the lowest temperatures you may experience are arount 10 degrees Celsius at night. So since we don't have extremes in terms of temperature, y8u can pretty much pack ordinary clothes. Lusaka is a modern city with all the conviniences modern conviniences. The people are friendly. You may need to get a car as soon as possible because public transportation is rather restrictive. Hope that helps.

Hello and congratulations for going to work in a beautiful and friendly country. Get someone to take you to Kamwala shopping center in Lusaka where 75 % of the shops are Asian owned, mainly Indian. Initially a tad overwhelming but you will soon realize that everyone is quite harmless. If you cannot find what you want there, someone there will definitely point you in the right direction. Kamwala is also fairly cheap.
