Exploring Kundalila Falls

Zambia has got so many waterfalls it is hard to keep count and even harder to find all of them but someone called Quentin Allen did just that. He went round and detailed all this in his book “Guide to Little Known Waterfalls of Zambia”, it has all the names, distances, which provinces they are…

Nkondo the Eco-Friendly Campsite

After the delightful adventure of going to the Bangweulu Wetlands, we headed back to Nkondo Campsite (booked through Shamba Travel) which was a real treat and along the way saw how the local community lives as well as the kind of food staple that is grown which is mainly cassava. All the little kids along…

The Serene Bangweulu Wetlands

After rescheduling numerous times due to you know what, finally got the holiday sorted but all I knew about the north-eastern part of Zambia was that there’s a beach with white sands and Lake Bangwelulu not much else. This trip was a very educative and informative one, admittedly I knew nothing about the wetlands and…

Dinner the Quorum Way

I was a bit nervous about going out to eat but very glad that I did because I had a good time and of course my first outing in four months had to be done in style at The Quorum. This swanky spot only just recently opened their doors and the only place opened for…

Monkey Pools Revisited

I can not believe that it has been a couple of years since my last visit to Monkey Pools and cabin fever had me yearning for a walk in the greater outdoors, so it was time to revisit the place. Located on leopards hill road within housing estate MukaMunya which in itself is situated at…

Best 5: Places to Eat in Lusaka

In these unprecedented times when most countries are still in lockdown and going food shopping has become a less enjoyable experience we now consider ordering in, even though the President has said that all restaurants, gyms, cinemas and casinos should now be open. Understandably the hospitality industry has been hit hard but many eating places…

Social Distancing at a Flower Farm

On a beautiful blazing hot sunny day I now have a deeper appreciation for the greater outdoors that I took advantage of. Although we have our own garden in times like these it’s great knowing someone with a farm because social distancing works every well with acres and acres of land as it’s mostly flowers,…

Quick Meeting at Le Elementos

For the first time in three weeks, I went out to get food supplies and for a quick meeting at Le Elementos Hotel. The moment you walk in you are given hand sanitizer but as you would expect with what’s going on worldwide things were pretty quiet there with just a handful of people sitting…

On the Road to Luangwa River

Long before isolation and social distancing we took a drive to a small town called Luangwa just to check out the River and enjoy the scenery. From Lusaka you drive east, it is a distance of 228.9 km, the drive took about 3.5 hours because we had a flat tire along the way but made…

The Reality of Life Without Electricity

The term “load shedding” in Zambia is what “Brexit” is to the UK and one word sums it all up, disruptive. In the past the country experienced power cuts every now and then but nothing compares to the daily power cuts which have become the norm. The government attributes the electricity issue to a lack…
