Walking Close to the Edge of the Victoria Falls

By the time the gate to the falls was opening at eight in the morning it was already 33º C and I was melting before the walk with our guide had started. Nevertheless it was another memorable experience actually walking on top of the mighty Victoria Falls which is shared between Zambia and Zimbabwe. Affectionately…

Feeding Time with the Park Giraffes

Every morning I had breakfast with the most splendid view of the swimming pool combined with blue skies which was just lush to look at. That said, must say that this has been one of the more special and memorable trips I have had to Livingstone because it was a completely different experience from all…

If you are not scared of heights and looking for a spectacular view, literally perched on the edge of the Batoka Gorge and about 755 feet above the Zambezi River lies Taita Falcon Lodge, either way you should brave it and go there anyway.

What’s Cooking: Chicken Fakeaway

Really been missing that Chinese takeaway not going to lie because my favourite spots seem to be closed and didn’t want to try out a new place because I like the old ones just fine. So now I’m going to fake it until I make it with my own fakeaway and it really comes close…

A Small Pit Stop in Mkushi

Mkushi is a small town in the Central Province of Zambia predominantly known for its commercial farming and that has been my perception until I spent a bit of time there on the way from the Bangweulu Wetlands. Along the way in many places in the country, one thing that gives me a cackle is…

Barbeque Night at the Radisson Blu

Things seems to be looking up and it was nice to go out once more to have a meal at the Radisson Blu Hotel for one of their Friday night barbeques. Arrived a little earlier than six to beat the traffic on that side of town with all the roadworks going on right now. It…
