Pioneer Lodge comes highly recommended, they will pick you up/drop you off - I think its ~$30 per trip (not per person)

Yes I enjoyed Pioneer. Booked directly online and everything went very smoothly including airport transfer.

another vote for Pioneer Lodge from me

Pretty good birding in the grounds as well.

 

The only down side is that, because it is close to the airport, it is on the wrong side of Lusaka if you are going to Kafue.

If you are going to Kafue you should plan to make a REALLY EARLY start to beat the rush hour traffic.

We stayed at Pioneer Lodge and thought it was a good choice. I don't think the transfer was particularly expensive.

I stayed at Radisson Blue which was perfectly fine but it lacked any real character or personality. When I return to Zambia next year I'll be staying at Latitude 15 because

it obviously has a far more distinctive personality.

As @Soukous says, it is the wrong side of Lusaka for Kafue but you can ask for a packed breakfast to speed you on your way - worked for us.

As far as personality goes, Pioneer all the way.

 

At Pioneer you have a bush ambience, delightful owners (Paul and Sophie). Excellent staff, close to the airport, simple but great food (steak and chips are superb) and lots of friendly dogs everywhere.
