Ndola Car Hire Mini Guide

Why Travel to Ndola?
The city of Ndola is where all of Zambia’s financial transactions take place including trade in its main commodity; copper. Beyond the business angle there’s little to attract people other than the decent restaurants and bars that take the money off Zambia’s wealthier people. There are a couple of game reserves nearby but overall you’ll find that you could get a little bored. You’ll also need to watch out for the pollution from the smelting works that fills the sky with a dusty smoke from time to time.

Ndola Airport

How do I Get to Ndola?
The easiest way to access Ndola is by taking a connecting flight from Johannesburg’s OR Tambo Airport. You can get flights to Johannesburg from Europe and especially the UK, so connecting to Ndola isn’t hard. The airport is just outside the city and as with many Zambian airports, collecting a pre-booked hire car from Ndola Airport when you arrive is the most sensible option. The airport is very basic, despite being the third busiest in Zambia. It has concrete runways so larger planes can land there but inside the concrete and glass terminal you’ll find few amenities to speak of and should aim to be self-sufficient if you expect to stay there for any length of time. Food and drink is available but is of variable quality and the only shops include small stalls selling local handicrafts at extortionate prices.

What Should I See in Ndola?
There’s very little of note but a place of pilgrimage exists in the Dag Hammarskjold Crash Site Memorial. Several conspiracy theories exist to explain the crash that killed one of the most popular UN Secretary Generals but the memorial built on the site where his body was found is a poignant reminder of the dangers of the position. In the city you’ll find decent hotels and restaurants where you can enjoy your evenings but most people stay in their hotels for meals.
