About this listing
Bongwe's Big Bush plot boasts of a beautiful huge garden full of amazing palm trees, fish ponds, beach style pub & a clear water pool.
We have 5 simple lovely rooms available for rent & are situated right next door to a shopping mall. Come visit us!
Bongwe's Big Bush Bar and Guest House is fantastic affordable home-away-from-home. Whether you are in town for business, pleasure or just passing through, our centrally located guest house is a great place to catch up with old friends or create new ones.
We have two room types which are either ensuite or with a shared bathroom. The $55 rate quoted is for the shared bathroom option, but an upgrade can be made and discussed if you prefer the ensuite option. The rates include a basic self service continental breakfast, housekeeping, laundry, free wifi and secure parking.
There is a lovely little restaurant in house serving hearty pub grub will serve you well if you don’t feel like going out to eat. But we can also recommend a number of good places around town to eat if you do.
As well as being a guest house we have a lively members bar on site which this can be a little loud over a weekend, but does not bother many people,but something worth noting when making your booking.
Also, as it is member's only everyone is very friendly and it is a safe environment for both solo and group travelers. It is also a great place to meet locals and like minded people experience a little piece of Lusaka night life.
We are close to the two main shopping malls, Arcades and Manda Hill (2 & 4kms respectively) and our new location is now right next to a small little mall called Foxdale Court. In this little spot you will find a couple of restaurants, a delicious ice cream shop and a nice open air bar on the top if you feel like spoiling yourself.
We're a 2 minute walk to a bus stop, but we'd prefer you use taxis as the minibuses can be a little crazy. k25 (approx $3) to the shops and k40 (approx $5) to the central bus/coach station.
We're 20 mins from the airport and can arrange an airport transfer for you at k200 (approx $30) each way.
Our sister company Bongwe Safaris operates from our guest house offering 4 days safaris departing to the Kafue National Park each week.
With a wonderful senior team Jairos, Claudia and Novias along with 10 others, you won’t be short of friendly faces as soon as you arrive.
On site we have a swimming pool, bar, pool table, restaurant and beautiful gardens.
We are also situated directly next to a bakery, shopping complex with a Spar, internet cafe, cocktail bar, pizza take away and most awesome...and ice cream shop! YUM!

Other things to note
We have a bar on site. As you can see from reviews, it can be quite loud over a weekend and we do not hide this fact. However, it is fairly quiet mid-week and so you won't be disturbed.
We have really friendly Lusaka residents coming in to drink with us and so hope that you will join us and enjoy!
