Futuristic African Exhibition

I had the chance to swing by the Modzi AIR Exhibition, highlighting work by Kolapo Olurunyemi, a Nigerian based science-inspired artist. The exhibit sheds light on the traditions and identity of Africans through the different unique tribal marks, whilst imagining a futuristic African.

Kolapo’s larger pieces are oil-on-canvas, with the notable one being of Mumba Yachi, one of Zambia’s most eclectic artists. Kolapo’s sketches on the other hand, are a mixture of pencil, pen and chalk. You can still see this beautiful work and interact with Kolapo at Modzi Art until Tuesday, 22 September 2022.

Zambia’s Best Kept Secret

I recently wrote a blog piece on what I consider as Zambia’s Best Kept Secret. It has been featured by Discover Zambia, one of the major media houses that is focused on showcasing the best of Zambia . You can read the piece on the link below.

Zambia’s Best Kept Secret

Lusaka’s Coworking Spaces

Lusaka now offers several options for business tourists and local businesses to readily access coworking spaces, hot desks, and flexible office solutions. Here are a few of my top picks:

Elunda Spaces

Elunda Spaces was one of the first places in Lusaka to offer flexible office solutions and virtual hot desks. Its central location and large tech savvy meeting rooms has also enabled it to remain a ‘go-to’ space for businesspeople looking for a blend of office and conferencing facilities.

AfricaWorks

AfricaWorks is Lusaka’s newest addition to the Coworking landscape. Its crisp, contemporary spin to office and boardroom spaces is drawing more business tourists that are inclined to work in the leafy, quieter suburb of Kabulonga. Ease and convenience should also come to mind when you think AfricaWorks, as their space located in proximity to some notable eateries, department stores and amenities.

The Works

The Works conveniently provides an all-in-one experience which allows you to work, eat, relax and play because of its proximity to the Latitude 15° boutique hotel. With timeless eclectic art dotted around its modern space, it is not hard to see why several champions of industry prefer to make this their locale of choice.

Hive Coworking Space

Home to one of Zambia’s innovation and technology hubs, the Hive Coworking Space has been a catalyst for building viable solutions for many budding entrepreneurs whilst providing a versatile space which supports synergies between local, regional and international organisations. It is not hard to see why the Hive is possibly the most affordable coworking space that Lusaka has to offer.

Lusaka in 72 Hours

I recently wrote a blog piece on what you can see, do and experience in my home town of Lusaka. It has been published in the Nkwazi Magazine, Zambia’s leading publication covering lifestyle, arts and culture, travel and business stories.

The Nkwazi is available in print and online so you can read the piece on the link below or grab a copy of the magazine on any Proflight service point in November and December 2022.

Your Guide to Zambia’s Capital City

Protea Chisamba

Located in the outskirts of Lusaka off the Great North road, the Protea Lusaka Safari Hotel is one Lusaka’s Safari Hotels offering a good getaway for those looking to escape the bustle of the city. Getting to the Hotel is fairly easy and not labourous as there is signage which indicates that the lodge is 3kms inland in the Chisamba area as you drive along Great North Road before getting to the toll gate. The access road from the Great North was fairly passable on my recent visit but I do not think it has been graded in a while so drive with caution.

The Protea Lusaka Safari Hotel sits within a Game Management Area which spans over 900 hectares. The Hotel provides guests access to their well manicured grounds, an inviting pool, a volleyball and basketball area. They also offer game driving opportunities for those who would like to see up to 15 major species of wildlife and many more bird species on the property. You are sure to see Wildebeest, Eland, Bushbuck, Sable, Kudu and Giraffe plus you can also make a stop at the Lion encampment to see the Lionesses from a safe distance.

The Hotel provides a breezy and calming environment just a stone throw away from Lusaka’s Central business district, and it is ideal for people looking for a good balance of tranquility and just enough to do without feeling busy. You are sure to enjoy some Marriot hospitality courtesy of the team who really go the extra mile regardless of whether your are there for conferencing, a day visit or even if you are accommodated there.

More Witnesses Exhibition

Mwimbi Fine Art Gallery is currently hosting the “More Witnesses” solo exhibition by Geoffrey Phiri. The art on display is largely mixed media, with an interesting use of soil, as Geoffrey is a sculpture by profession. The art depicts the different interpretations of situations by the many witnesses and voices in various segments of society. The exhibition will be open to the public until mid October and is free.

Mwimbi Fine Art moved from Woodlands to the Bishops Office Park, opposite the Kabulonga Centro Mall, right above Africa Works.
