Village rest accomodation is perfect for a night or two stop over. On the Kafue Road 15 kms from city centre, it's a quiet and relaxed spot with plenty of mall shopping nearby. Breakfast and dinner were very good and our room was adequate for 5 (we booked a chalet). Clean, rustic style complete with adjacent gym and heated indoor...

Very happy with our stay. The owners are charming as is the service. Excellent value for money. Many new shopping facilities nearby without the need to travel into Lusaka centre (lots of traffic to avoid). We will be using this place again!

I had to rate Village Rest as average because there are some areas that need improvement. These however are superficial. The staff and service are good. Breakfast is included in the price and was Ok.

Situated about 200 metres off Kafue Road, the thatched roof cottages of this lodge are comfortable and spacious, each with ensuite bathroom. Peaceful, lovely gardens, ideal for campers, with swimming pool, volleyball court and trampoline. Secure location. Breakfast is included in the room rate. Excellent laundry service. Restaurant provides snacks such as toasted sandwiches and basic, but well cooked and...

Big, clean rooms - mine had an enormous bathtub, and lots of hot water. There's a good restaurant/bar here, and a decent-sized gym. Staff are friendly and professional. Very convenient for Chilanga, but not for Lusaka city itself.
