Travel

Travelling has always been one of my passions, it gives me perspective, it evolves the way I see and live my life. This portion of my blog is as much a self exercise in learning how to share my travels as it is for giving any sort of travel advice. If you also find it informative or inspiring in any way then I’m thrilled!

The Nkwazi is available in print and online so you can read the piece on…

Mindolo Dam

This serene spot is just 20 minutes outside Kitwe off the Kalulushi Road in Zambia’s Copperbelt province. I was happy to learn that the Mindolo Dam can be found using my maps app, but I initially got lost, as I took the directions heading toward Chingola. I was back on track after calling the Mindolo…

Things to Do in Isanga Bay

Kayaking on Lake Tanganyika I absolutely loved being able to push my limits by leaving the safety of the bay, paddling to some pretty deep blue waters and opening myself up to the thrill of it all. This experience was one for the books 🤩, the experience was just darn good for the gut, a…

Lake Tanganyika

I signed up for a group excursion hosted by African Vacations and GlobalSmash and got to visit the Northern-most region of Zambia where our great nation meets the waters of the Tanganyika. This was the longest journey I have taken since I began my Zungulile Zambia adventure, it was just over 1000 km away from…
