Lukulu is a typical rural town situated in Western province of Zambia. The town is the major town and Headquarters of the Lukulu district. The economy of the town is mainly depended on farming and fishing with markets selling fresh produce and also exporting some fish. Since the town is situated close to the Zambezi river, there is the Zambezi's Barotse Floodplain, where water level rises above the river bank and channel and flow to the floodplain making it impassable, a pontoon across the river is therefore available in such cases. Due to its rural setting electricity in this town can be erratic as well as water supplies. Fuel is available but only from drums and not a petrol pump and these are unreliable, so visitors are advised to fill up their tanks in the nearby towns. There are no tourism offices.
