Siavonga, Zambia is the general destination for DISCON 2018: BE THE DIFFERENCE from 30 May to 03 June 2018.
The Main Conference Venue is Freshview Hotel. We will however have breakout sessions in a few other venues to be advised.
GETTING TO SIAVONGA:
There is no airport in Siavonga so the best and obvious way to get there is by road. Drive from Zimbabwe through either the Chirundu Boarder or the Kariba Boarder. If you come by public transport through Kariba boarder, we will provide one shuttle serve on the 30th of May only to the official hotels.
If you fly in to Lusaka from within or outside Zambia, you may take advantage of a shuttle service we are organizing from Lusaka. On 29 May and 30 May, we will have shuttles run from Lusaka to Siavonga at various times to be advised. These buses will return to Lusaka on 03 June. A round trip from Lusaka Airport to Siavonga and back is K250 (~$26) while a round trip from Lusaka City to Siavonga and back is K200 (~$20).
You can drive yourself from anywhere straight to Siavonga offcourse. The main hotel is in a hilly location. We will therefore encourage delegates to share a ride to Siavonga as much as possible to reduce the total number of cars. Further, as much as possible, park your car at your hotels and join the official shuttles running between the conference hotels to the venues and back.
