Kitwe, a small affluent city, is the provincial capital of Copperbelt province, one of the eleven provinces of Zambia. In the central northern region of Zambia, it leads the country as one of the largest copper mining and processing regions. Home to the Kafue River, it borders next the Democratic Republic of Congo.

It is the second largest city in the country, home to wonderful scenery and mine thugs called “Jerabos”. Coming through into Kitwe just close to the train bridge is a large slug mountain of mineral waste that was given the nickname “Black mountain” by the locals. Anywho, despite the name it is a intriguing site and wonderful city altogether… Well except the mine thugs bit.

The inhabitants are friendly and accommodating. Secondly, they should be cautious in terms of movements and keep safe because some areas may be dangerous at awkwardly late hours. In addition, the cost of living is slightly on the higher side. And finally, they should feel free and feel at home.
