Location of Ndola in Zambia

Ndola is the second-largest city in Zambia, with a population of 374,757 (2000 census}. It is the main hub of the Copperbelt, a region in which Zambia's copper is mined. Copper exports provide a large part of Zambia's income, and as such, the city, although not a copper producing center itself, is very important to the country's economy. The town is connected to by rail to Kitwe and to Livingstone via Lusaka. It is home to an airport, a power station, a technical college, NORTEC and Northrise University. It lies on the Itawa and Kafubu Rivers and is home to the Slave Tree around which Arabic slave markets were held in the nineteenth century, before the town's foundation in 1904. The Dag Hammarskjöld Memorial ten kilometres along the Ndola/Kitwe road commemorates the site where the former United Nations Secretary General died in a plane crash on 18th September 1961 near Ndola during the Katanga crisis in Zaire. Ndola is also home to two sunken lakes found on the Copperbelt. Lake Chilengwa, lying about sixteen kilometres southeast of Ndola is one of them, the other being the 100 meter deep Lake Kashiba.
