Chita has an amazing location about a 8 minute walk to Manda Hill and a good quiet neighborhood. It's a popular spot for people in the neighborhood to watch premiere league on the weekends and has a very social vibe. The rooms are big, clean and have great bathtubs. It also has a generator which is a must (especially as... More

The Management claims "Authentic African Hospitality". The hotel (guest house?) is very comfortable with lots of African crafts and arts strewn around the hotel like models of cheetahs, wild boar etc. The rooms are comfortable but the 1st floor rooms are a bit dingy and depressing due to their huge size and dim lighting. The bathrooms also occupy a large... More

Chita Lodge is a nice and comfortable lodge in Lusaka. The staff was always helpful and friendly. Chita Lodge offers a clean garden with a small pool-bar. During the weekends the bar is busy and loud until 23:00. If you are staying in one of the garden rooms, you might need to enjoy the other drink as well. Otherwise, the... More

I stayed at this hotel in July of 2014. The staff were very friendly, and always wanted to be accommodating. Sometimes you did have to ask for what you wanted, though. Chef Phiri's food was excellent, and he would make local specialties such as nshima and relish if we asked for it. We stayed on the second floor, and did... More

I visited Chita Lodge on the 1st of May 2014 with a friend, we had lunch and a few drinks at the Pool side. The Lodge is very nice small and tranquil. Chef Isaac Phiri's food was great and our waiter who served was very professional, I have forgotten the name but she has a Ndebele name. The music at... More

Very poorly maintained. Staff unable to help. Poor quality breakfast without many options. Avoid staying on ground floor near bar - can get very noisy. The wifi was not working. A plus point is that it is close to the Manda Hill mall

I stayed at Chita lodge for one night. The stuff at reception were very polite and professional. The rooms were clean. An added bonus is that the lodge is a walking distance to shopping mall (manda hill). I stayed in room 4, It was very noisy. I could hear loud voices and doors opening for most of the night.

After having spent 2 weeks traveling around Zambia on business, I had experienced the worst that Zambia had to offer in terms of accommodation. Chita Lodge, whilst not perfect, is definitely a cut above the rest in terms of service and comfort. The staff were really friendly, and the food was not bad. The bar was a big plus, as... More

I stayed at Chita Lodge for the first time last year (2012) and i have stayed there since. It's definitely one of the best lodges in Lusaka and it's location is very suitable for someone who wants to easily get access to the whole lusaka. But i must point out that the best thing about it is it's staff and... More

When I first found Chita Lodge I was relieved as it appeared to be one of the few middle range hotels in Lusaka at about half the price of the international chains (Intercon, Taj), but much nicer than those $25-50 less per night. However, after staying there on and off for a period of months, they managed to mess up/cancel... More
