The city of Chingola is famous for mining. It is situated in Zambia's copper-mining region, the Copperbelt Province. Chingola is also the site of the Nchanga Open Pit Mine, which is considered the second biggest open cast mine. The city has a small population of over 100,000 residents and getting around here is easy.
Chingola was once known as the cleanest city in Zambia. The city itself was born only after the Nchanga Open Pit Mine was opened in 1943. This mine is situated covering 11 kilometers of the city's western portion. The open pit mine is easily accessible with a car rental at Chingola.
Tourists can take a car hire at Chingola and visit the open pit mine, which is 400 meters deep. Also nearby is an underground mine. The city has a rich mining industry and this is mainly the source of the city's economy. The mining sites also attract tons of tourists from all over the world.
But apart from its mines, Chingola also has other places worth visiting. A short drive with a cheap car hire at Chingola will take one to the popular Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage, which serves as temporary shelter for chimpanzees. The orphanage and chimpanzee sanctuary started in 1983 and is currently housing more than 100 chimpanzees.
Also worth visiting in the city is the Hippo Pool that is found in the Kafue River. This river is situated 100 kilometres north from the city. It is the home of Zambia's rich wildlife and serves as a tributary of Zambezi, the country's main river. The river has several areas and the Zambezi river passes through several key areas in the country.

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver.
