Still haven’t got your plot yet? Oooh shem you’re missing out… Watch the video below to see how things are moving.

Nkwashi Real Estate Development would like to encourage all clients and prospective buyers to take advantage of their ongoing free shuttle service.

Nkwashi introduces free shuttle service to new Lusaka development

If you are in Lusaka, why not stop by and see how your new investment is going? For those that have taken up the opportunity we’ve been telling you about, this is a good chance for you to visit the site. If you still haven’t invested and are looking for land in a prime location in Lusaka, this is what R1300 per month can get you…


“Nkwashi gave us a wonderful tour. The Site Engineer was able to answer all our questions with openness, and the road network was impressive to see.” – Christine (Nkwashi Plot Owner)

For many plot owners and prospective clients, Nkwashi’s free shuttle service served as an opportunity to visit the 3,100 square meter development for the first time. It was eye-opening, to say the least, for the clients who did not know where their plots were until the free shuttle service was introduced…

Trips to the Nkwashi Development Site are still ongoing, and clients are encouraged to reserve a seat before the free shuttle service comes to a close in August 2016.

To reserve your seat, please call: +260 21 1268 915, 097 2 57 7234, 096 1 105655, 095 4 809717 or email: hello@thebe-im.com

This post will give you a full picture and direction on where you can go to take part in this incredible opportunity.

With the real estate sector in Lusaka growing by as much as 15% each year, there isn’t a better time to invest back home. This is why Nkwashi decided to bring the opportunity to buy into the largest satellite town development in Lusaka, to Zambians in the diaspora; starting with you South Africa.

The following 1 minute video shows you all you need to know about the development and the roadshow taking place in Midrand, Johannesburg next week (13th – 18th June 2016 | Birchwood Court, 43 Montrose Street, Vorna Valley, Midrand, 1686).
