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…

Swift Tea Break at Ciêla Resort and Spa 

It was a strangely gloomy drizzly summers morning but went to briefly see some folks playing in the charity golf tournament at Bonanza. Although the hotel has been open for a while now, have not set foot this side of town in ages and the last time I ventured there, the only thing there was…

Digital Freedom Fighters

When we think of the term freedom fighter in Zambian history a name that comes to mind is the founding father of Zambia Dr. Kenneth Kaunda who recently passed away at 97 years old. Say what you will about him but his approach to activism, pan africanism, mediation work of uniting countries in Southern Africa,…

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…

Travel: A Brief Pit Stop at Gwabi River Lodge

Had such a marvellous time away in Lower Zambezi, we were well taken care of, sad to say goodbye to the river views, the sunbathing monitor lizard near our chalet and noisy hippos that always woke us up early in the morning. Decided to change the route and use the normal windy road through Chirundu…

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…

On the Road: Zambezi Escarpment Views

Some months ago before the rain had subdued, we went for a drive and ended up past the end of Leopards Hill Road all the way to Chongwe. We were curious and turned right at the junction onto the Chirundu Road to see what was there and how much further we could drive, only to…

Dinner with Friends at Prime Joint

Met up with some friends during the week and finally made it to highly rated as well as recommended Prime Joint. It was considerably busier than I thought it would be for a weekday, was getting a bit of anxiety being around so many people because it has been a while. Luckily a table was…

Idyllic Lunch At Orchard The Farm Shop

Stumbled upon Orchard The Farm Shop on Instagram and thought it looked idyllic for lunch so called them up to ask for the menu, get directions then reserved a table, which I suggest you do because as much as the place is charming it is not that big and is really popular. Located about 12…

Catchup and Cocktails At Latitude 15

Just realised before meeting a friend who I haven’t seen in a year for some socially distanced cocktails that it has been close to two years since I stepped foot inside Latitude 15 degrees. Masked up I went ahead, first thing when you arrive at the gate is a temperature check then once that’s an…
