Description

Lovely campsite & BnB, located in the south of Lusaka, on the boundary of a residential- and farming area. The owners, Harry and Geke, have opened up their garden and house for travelers and short stay visitors who are looking for a “home away from home”. Their unique and stylish decorated rooms offer a little luxury and the warmest welcomes.

The campsite is set in a beautifully maintained garden with swimming pool and patio facility for your enjoyment. The campsite bathrooms offer an unusual luxury.

It is also possible to join the “table d’hôte” with the owners: a nice meal with an accompanying drink for only US$10,- p.p.

All-in all a great place for adventurers who need a break in a peaceful set up with Lusaka “just around the corner” for their shopping, visa applications, etc.

And not to forget, Harry and Geke are a really nice Dutch couple, already living and traveling through Africa for more than 20 years, so they can also give you good advise on where to go and what to do in Zambia or other places in Africa.

Please give Harry a call or send a Whatsapp before arriving to check availability: +26 0966860445.

Great place with very friendly owners. Atm 3 campsites (officially), may fit 4 cars, though. We arrived so late (and after dark) that we took a room with own bathroom in the house, which was very clean, nice and big. Good bed and nice bathroom. $50 for 2 ppl. Camping would’ve been $12.50/pppn. Nice breakfast with strong coffee was included in the room price. Lovely and quiet setting with pool away from the hustle of the city. Good location especially if you’re on your way south. 3 friendly and lovely dogs on the premises, too. :)

Pretty garden with lot's of fruit trees. Harry and Geke are very nice people.

They advertise with a free 5th night. You (adults and children) will not get that when you bring children, because children are half price.

What a great place to stay, especially over Christmas. Harry and Geke are wonderful hosts and really make you feel at home from home. We camped in their lush garden with indigenous trees, lots of birds and a pool. There is a new communal area with a couch and a pool table where you can relax and there are some more things to come.
Everything else is as described before. If you need something, don't hesitate to ask them
Thanks again for that fantastic Christmas, the delicious food and your hospitality.

We arrived at Lukasa for one night and we stayed 7 ! It says it all …
Quiet and magnificent garden with beautiful trees and lot of birds, clean and large swimming pool, luxury ablutions, fridge & freezer, laundry, vacuum cleaner, nice food (possibly to book for diner) and last but not least wonderful hosts, the owners Geke & Harry. Always available and ready to advise, help and joke. We spent Xmas there and it felt really like a home away from home. In one word, a place of paradise for campers

Great place! We came here with our 3 young kids and they had the time of their lives. Playing in the pool, swinging the big home made swing or playing volleybal. Geke and Harry are very good company where you feel at home straight away. Please have a meal with them as Geke is a great chef.
Prices are very reasonable.

1st visit, as campsites go it was ok, got to park up on their lawn, power available to hook up when their's no load shedding.
there is no bbq/braai water or power hook up on camp spots but there is a wash up room with fridges, not sure if they are for guests to use.
The ablutions are neat and tidy although I feel its not enough if there is going to be a few campers around as its solar heated only.
Kwa260 pppn strangely linked to the Dollar

We very much enjoyed our stay at Lukasa! The garden, where we camped, was a little green oasis. The four dogs were adorably affectionate. The evening meals were delicious and it was great to meet other guests around the table. Harry and Geke are truly wonderful hosts with a knack for making one feel immediately at home--and indeed like personal guests rather than just customers. While there, we were even invited to a wedding festivity (thank you, Dominic!), which we will remember for a long time. The prices are very reasonable, the toilets are clean, the water is hot, the grounds are secure--yes, yes. But it was the personal touch that our hosts brought to the experience (including super helpful itinerary advice from Harry) and the little community that they created among themselves and the guests each day that made our stay so special. Highly recommended!

It was great to be back again. We enjoyed the swimmingpool and company of the owners, volunteers and other guests. We could use the kitchen and washing machine. There is a good mechanic close by. Dan, See I overlander.

Lovely informal Campsite, located in the south of Lusaka, on the boundary of a residential- and farming area. The owners, Harry and Geke, have opened up their garden and house for travelers and short stay visitors who are looking for a “home away from home”. You can camp (US$ 12,50 p.p.p.n) in their beautiful green garden or on more solid ground. The ablutions are currently in the process of being erected, but you can use their communal bathroom in the house. It is also possible to sleep in one of their cozy bedrooms in the main house (4 rooms, 2 of them with private bathrooms, prices 30 – 50 US$ per room per night).
There is a great swimming pool and you can enjoy the sunset on the veranda or have a drink in the home bar. It is also possible to join the “table d’hôte” with the owners: a nice meal with an accompanying drink for only US$10,- p.p.
All-in all a great place for adventurers who need a break in a peaceful set up with Lusaka “just around the corner” for their shopping, visa applications, etc. And not to forget, Harry and Geke are a really nice Dutch couple, already living and traveling through Africa for more than 20 years, so they can also give you good advise on where to go and what to do in Zambia or other places in Africa.
