"My home town" Kitwe by Kalulu

Kitwe Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 1 photos

Much I have to say about this town is not great. I'll be honest. People don't come on holiday to Kitwe when they visit Zambia and there's a reason for it....there ain't much to do. The main reason people come here is for business or to visit family and friends. Its a great town but not very 'touristy'.

    Was reading you comment about the Squash club. Just to let you know that l had the lease on the restaurant for 5 years. I named the restaurant Rack-A-Teers. Yes l was renowned for the best steaks in town. I bet a lot of my staff are still there.

    How things have changed over the years! Where are the days you could leave your car/house unlocked, without having to worry that someone would help themselves to your goods! But I suppose the whole world has changed!

    That Indian restaurant sounds great! There used to be some fantastic Chinese ones in Kitwe when I worked there 30 years ago (likely Indian too)!

    Lived in Kitwe 1971 - 1976. A place very dear to my heart.
