Ducks, Iced Tea & Photography Club

Our last physical camera club meeting took place months ago, apart from our monthly zoom meetings. Now that social gatherings of more than a certain number of people are allowed, we are rotating the meetings in different neighbourhoods in Lusaka so as not to always be in one location at a time, giving people a…

Best 5: Accessible Waterfalls in Zambia

Zambia is a country filled with a variety of sights, from the mighty Victoria Falls to the multiple National Parks where you can see waterfalls and wildlife that give you a memorable experience. Along with their aesthetic beauty, these waterfalls also provide a beautiful backdrop as they cascade down cliffs or tumble over rocks into…

Gone Fishing to Lower Zambezi

The rainy season is now over which means most of the remote lodges and resorts are officially open and back in business. One of the best places for fishing is Lower Zambezi because it is quiet, not much phone signal, secluded and the views are awesome. Stayed at Mvuu (pronounced Mmmmmvvvuuuu) Lodge which is located…

Girls Trip to Scorching Siavonga

After having major cabin fever had to get away with friends in my bubble for a few days just to relax by the beach. Driving with the girls laughing and joking away on the long windy road to Siavonga which is only three hours away from Lusaka didn’t feel that long. The town itself lies…

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…

Light Lunch with a View at Taita Falcon Lodge

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. It is approximately a thirty-five minute drive from the main road…

Art Plus Wildlife Gaze at the Avani Resort Hotel

Always enjoy staying at the Avani the staff are great and it’s a very family oriented environment but one thing about Livingstone is you feel that blazing summer heat early in the morning so it’s best to keep hydrated first thing. Having already been on numerous game drives must admit that the wildlife in Zambia…

Staycation: All Packed for Sunny Livingstone

Although October is one of the hottest summer months in Zambia and the further south you go the hotter it gets, but it had to be done I had to get out of town. Destination for the staycation was Livingstone, the town that offers you so much more than soaring temperatures and is famously known…

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…
