Free-time activities

There's a complete package of exciting activities that you can enjoy both within and off campus during free time! We've sports fields where our you and of course local staff can spoil yourselves to games such as volleyball, netball and football. We also have a farm in the countryside where you can go camping or for picnics over the weekend. 

In case you wish to experience life outside campus, there's a long list of places of interest to consider: There's the Countryside resort that one may visit for fishing escapades, not far from us! 

In a mood to view game? 

Well.....you can always take a 2 hour trip to Chimfunshi Orphanage Trust to view Chimpanzees and listen to interesting stories. This is the place where they offer sanctuary to Chimpanzees and Monkeys from abroad where the rich keep them as pets but immediately dump them once the are deemed to have grown too old and became dangerous! 45 minutes from our location, there's a game reserve where you may enjoy viewing animals such as Kudus, impalas, giraffes, crocodiles and snakes.     

If you're up to more adventure and wish to explore our touristic attractions further, you may as well hop into a train and find your way to our Livingstone! Once you're in the tourist capital, you may not only marvel at the Mighty Victoria Falls, which is one of the 7 wonders of the world, but also come face to face with the big 5 (Lion, Elephant, Rhino, Leopard and Buffalo)!

If your bodies are aching and feel like stretching your muscles, you can always go boat cruising and swimming or mountain climbing and bush trailing in the dense Mwekera Forest.

Feel like sending souvenirs back home to family and friends or indeed something to remind yourself of Africa? Well........you don't have to look further because there are several curio markets within our city where you can purchase such treasured items!
