Kabesha Market is in no guide, but it is a must see when in Lusaka. It’s a small unofficial live stock trade market, where proud small scale farmers or peasant farmers sell their chickens, hens, pigeons, pigs and goats. It's primitive to Western standards, so maybe not for those with a slightest interest in animal welfare. The farmers loved to get their picture taken!
Most of the farmers come from southern Zambia en travel hundreds of kilometers to to this cooperative market. Some animals, mostly the chicken are sold to restaurants, others like goats go to new owners that keep them for a bit longer (and maybe sell them later).
Zambia’s charms are many and varied – this landlocked southern African country is home not only to the jaw-dropping Victoria Falls but also has even more seriously impressive natural sights. Zambia invites you to experience true adventure, exploring parks on foot, hearing the sounds of the bush and being drenched by spray from the Falls. The sheer scale and purity of Zambia’s natural wonders makes it an exceptional safari destination, yet many of its national parks are scarcely visited still.
