Kapirimponshi Town

Kapirimponshi is situated in the Central part of Zambia. It is about 180 kilometers from Lusaka and 120 kilometers from Ndola. The town is also fondly referred to as Kapiri.

Being a transit town for both rail and road users, the town is a hype of activity that makes it never sleep.

The road network takes you to three destinations; the copperbelt and Congo Dr, Northern and Tanzania and thirdly, Lusaka and the countries down south.

Because of its central location, it receives a lot of visitors who are enroute. Most of the buses stop here for refreshments.

Railway Connection

It connects Zambia Railways line from Kitwe through Lusaka to Livingstone. It is also here that you can board TAZARA (Tanzania Zambia Railway Authority) and travel up to Kasama and end up at Nakonde in the north of Zambia.
