Getting through border posts into Zambia from the south is a hassle and getting through Lusaka at any time of the day is equally time-consuming, so Eureka is about your only option if you don't want to travel at night, never a good idea in Zambia. We camped and our friends stayed in three of the chalets - the camping... More

We got here quite late, the keys were handed out and I got room 10. I got there and went in and the room smelled dusty. I out down my bag and then went to the camp area for tea. When I tried to close the door, it would not lock or even close. The piece of metal that should... More

Getting through the border at Victoria Falls took over 2 hours - crazy! The road from Victoria Falls to Lusaka is fine and took about 5 hours. We were very happy to find the chalets at Eureka were quite large and comfortable. The bedding was comfortable and came with a mosquito net. There was some dust etc. floating down from... More

Eureka camp is located outside Lusaka and after driving through the city which in my opinion looked very clean and friendly compared to some other African cities, we decided to arrange a taxi into one of the shopping malls for something to eat. This was organised by the bar man Robin and the camp cook drove us in and collected... More

Just returned from Lusaka and a fantastic stay with 24 other at Eureka Campsite. We stayed in their chalet accommodation which was perfectly, clean, tidy and functional. The grounds were manicured and the bar well stocked. Food can be pre-ordered and is very well cooked. If you want to use the many BBQ's that are situated around the site there... More

We were welcomed by zebras on the road entering Eureka. Not a bad way to be greeted. We stayed only one night during an overland trip but we found the camp to provide all that we needed: hot showers, clean bathrooms, water for cooking. The bar had a nice vibe and offered reasonably priced drinks. Nothing to complain about here.

Very cute campsite. Lots going on, bar is open and well stocked. Showers and toilets are nice but a muddy walk from the camp site. Lots of space to put up tents. Very friendly campsite lots of nice people around. Very cute dogs as well!

We were welcomed by two ginormous male giraffes and several little zebras as we made our way in the late evening to our area with no gas and limited supples. I cooked the vego option in the camp kitchen and experienced first hand a high stress situation with the proverbial up tight chef berating the slowness of the help. It... More

We stayed in one of the A-framed which was really good, especially after sitting in a bus for 10 hours. The service is however quite bad. The prices are very high ($8 for breakfast, and we got this tiny sandwich..) and by the time we had to pay we found out we couldn't pay with credit card! We ended up... More

This was the most diry and dangerous place we stayed during our 3 week overland tour through East Africa. The first chalet we were given was pretty dirty with many dead insects lying on the floor. When I had a shower out of a sudden I received an electric shock - the water must have somehow connected to the electricity.... More
