Leopards Hill Memorial Park's main entrance is on Twin Palm Road, with a secondary entrance on Leopards Hill Road. The park lies between Lusaka's Old Leopards Hill and New Leopards Hill cemeteries.
The cemetery offers various types of burial sites to suit individual needs and budgets, ensuring a less stressful interment process for friends, family and loved ones. Together with viewing rooms, there are lawn sites, memorial sites and family sites.
Grave site special information
Lawn style grave sites
These sites follow a contemporary styled burial site consisting of a tomb-stone in a concrete footing, within beautifully maintained, irrigated lawns.
Memorial style grave sites
Generally, these sites follow a European style burial site, consisting of a tombstone, a flagstone and a kerb. The memorial section is restricted to certain areas of the park.
Family grave sites
The family section allows more customisation than is available within memorial and lawn sections. Select this type if you have very specific requirements for the site.
Distinguished citizen grave sites
This is a reserved section of the burial ground for Zambian citizens whose service to the country has been exemplary and inspirational, such as achievement of formal, national acknowledgement with an eagle order of merit.
By honouring such individuals a legacy is left to encourage others to emulate their example. This is one of the ways Leopards Hill Memorial Park gives back to the local community, as well as to the nation at large.
