Becoming More Sustainable

If there was ever a word that we hear a lot of now more than ever is Sustainability. What is it? It is something that can be continued or a practice that maintains a condition without harming the environment. One thing that isolation has taught me it is to look into becoming more sustainable as…

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…

7th Sense Fine Dining at The Quorum

I brushed up on my table manners expeditiously the minute I got invited to experience the 7th Sense at the Quorum. To be honest fine dining does cost you a pretty penny but it is one of those meals that you will never shut up about once you have a taste. Now that lockdown restrictions…

Although we are currently not able to physically meet for the Camera Chat Group Lusaka meetings still once a month via Zoom and submissions are made online for now to be safe. Last month’s assignment was on Nature Macro Photography, which is a unique form of photography that involves photographing small objects to make them look…

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…
