Jesmondine - Lusaka, Zambia


Located in the heart of Lusaka's largest constituency, Jesmondine is one of the capital's most attractive neighborhoods in the northeastern part of the city. The area has seen a lot of up-scaled development in recent years. It boasts lush marshland greenery and urban modern homes, making it a popular choice amongst upper middle-class locals as well as expatriates.

The area is noted for its secure environment and range of properties, from apartments to modern houses. Jesmondine has beautiful tree-lined streets that blend harmoniously with the modern architecture that has developed in recent times, making for some of the best "all-round" living Lusaka has to offer.

Distance from Key Points

As a neighborhood with a mix of both legacy and modern development, Jesmondine is within a 30 km radius of both Kenneth Kaunda International Airport (KKIA) and the Lusaka CBD, making it ideal pick for families and businesses alike.


For families with children, this neighborhood has access to a wide range of quality educational facilities, and is close to some of the best schools in the city. Due to its closeness to Roma & Kalundu, it is close to schools such as Lusaka International Community School (LICS) (4.9 km), Roma Girls (6.7 km), Pinewood Preparatory School (4.7 km) and the British International Primary School (BIPS), which is only 2.8 km away.

Chudleigh House School is also located within neighboring Chudleigh, and Jesmondine is a stone's throw away from the notable Munali Secondary School, which was one of the first secondary schools for black students in Zambia's history. Notable alumni include Rupiah Banda, the fourth President of Zambia and Reuben Kamanga, the first Vice President of Zambia, to name a few. The University of Zambia (UNZA), the largest higher learning institution in the country, is also just a short distance away, with only Great East Road separating it from the area.

Shopping Malls

Jesmondine is close to the newly-opened Munali Mall & Mosi-oa-Tunya Shopping Center, which both boast dozens of stores for customer's convenience. EastPark Mall, the largest mall in the country, is also just a few minutes' drive away, with a wide range of shopping and dining options.


Access to quality healthcare facilities is also part of what makes Jesmondine attractive. It is not too far from the renowned Victoria Hospital (2.5 km), located in nearby Kalundu, and the State-owned Levy Mwanawasa University Teaching Hospital, which is within a 5 km radius.

Special Attractions (Restaurants, etc.)

In terms of special attractions, Jesmondine is home (and close to) several top-notch restaurants and cafes, offering a diverse selection of local and international cuisine. One example of this is the newly- opened Cocobello restaurant, located in the heart of the area. The restaurant often has special events such as hosting DJ's and having game nights, making for some enjoyable entertainment should one want to leave the house. Munali Mall is also home to #Social, a restaurant and bar that lives up to its name with a wide range of social events throughout the year, from broadcasting live sports events, to karaoke and hosting live DJ's. The aforementioned University of Zambia also has social events lined up throughout the year, and if need be, East Park Mall is always a short drive away for some entertainment.

Why Jesmondine?
