A UNESCO memorial site, Dag Hammarskjoeld Memorial outlines the plane crash of the United Nations general that happened here. Ask for an informative guide, who should be able to re-create the events. The memorial was built using stones from all over the globe, and it is precisely encompassed by gardens and flower beds. Delve further into the site and visit the neighboring museum to find pieces of wreckage taken from the crash site, as well as other keepsakes of the general's life and work.

This site is a memorial site for late for UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjoeld who died in a plane crash in Ndola Zambia. more »
It's a great Heritage place to visit. Out tour guide was excellent. It's as if he was there when the plane crashed. The posters explain a lot about the place. The place is well kept.
The history of the site is very interesting and the guide is quite informed of the facts - and theories - of the crash. However, they are missing an opportunity by not providing literature or souvenirs of the site for sale by visitors. Also, there is not place on site to purchase food or drink even though local Rotary Clubs have provided picnic tables for anyone wanting to bring their own lunch and drinks. Again, a missed opportunity to make the site self supporting.
