Save Place
Chiawa, Zambia
The original Lower Zambezi luxury lodge, Chiawa Camp greets the eye as a thatched-roof monument of impressive proportions. Beyond the open-walled lounge and greeting area are nine platform tents. They’re comfortable, to say the least—indoor and...

The innovative design of this six-villa camp set along the Luangwa River relies on crosswinds for cooling. Yoga classes, private pools, and leather furnishings are examples of Chinzombo’s resortlike amenities. From $575. 26/(0) 216-246- 025. This...

Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia
I’ve never seen a building quite like Chongwe River House. With its alien forms and white walls plastered smooth like putty, it has a bit of a Gaudí feel. But here, on a calm tributary of the mighty Zambezi, you certainly feel worlds apart from...

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
Two caveats for anyone visiting Zambia’s best-known tourist attraction in the wet season: you won’t be alone, and you will get wet. It’s totally worth it, though, for this is one of planet’s great natural wonders. And sometimes you get a little...

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
I spent much of my time at Victoria Falls looking into tumbling walls of water. A bit less overwhelming, and more picturesque, is the elegant steel bridge that was built here in 1905. You get a beautiful view of it while doing the standard Vic...

Abraham Banda has won awards for his guiding. For what it’s worth, I will say that he deserves every one of them—if not more. He’s diligent and soft-spoken. He knows the place like the back of his hand. What’s more, he’s got a great sense of humor...

Lilayi, Zambia
I loved these paper lamps at Lilayi, in the shape of kudu wall mounts. A gated estate and game preserve on the fringe that separates the city of Lusaka from the bush, LilayI is a great option if you’ve got a night to kill in Lusaka. (Given the...

It’s called Islands of Siankaba because there are two islands. On one, the main house and restaurant and boat dock. On the other, a string of six raised chalets connected by rope bridges. (Rope bridges also connect the two islands.) The islands...

Bole, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
My first time aboard one of Boeing’s new Dreamliners was with Ethiopian, of all places. You may be thinking: “Ethiopian?" It’s true—they're the first African carrier to put the Dreamliner into service. And good on them for investing in planes that...

Leopards Hill Rd, Lusaka, Zambia
A highlight of a popular expat hangout in Lusaka called Sugarbush Farm, this boutique is full of what the French call the chic d’Afrique. Horn bangles, wooden salad utensils, suede pouches, and vibrant textiles are among the goods, many of which...
