I was out cycling the other day and found this place. I don’t know why or when this water park was abandoned. It’s situated on Leopard’s Hill outside Lusaka. The water slides and the structures around them seems to be robustly built, maybe it would still be possible to restore the park. The bush is taking over and it’s easy to miss the place unless you know exactly where you’re going. I found the last picture in the gallery online, […]
Last week, I went back to Kafue National Park . It’s the largest national park in Zambia, covering an area of about 22,400 km² (similar in size to Wales or Massachusetts). It is the second largest park in Africa and is home to over 55 different species of animals. We saw lots of elephants and were also lucky to see a mother Leopard with two cubs. We stayed at the brilliant Mukambi Safari Lodge, I highly recommend to stay here if […]
Yesterday I did a promo shoot for Andreas Tjärnberg, OCR Athlete in Team Sweden. OCR stands for “Obstacle Course Racing” and is a fast growing sport around the world. For more info about Andreas and OCR, check out his website (in Swedish): superkroppen.nu
A few days ago, me and a friend did a story about the Zambian radio show Tikambe. “Tikambe” is Nyanja and means “Let’s talk”. The radio show is a youth-led programme focusing on sexual and reproductive health. The show is sponsored by several international donors such as Swedish Sida and BBC Media Action. Our story will be shown on Swedish TV within a couple of weeks

I just came back from a camping trip in Kafue National Park. Me and a few friends spent a couple of nights in the bush surrounded by Hippos, Elephants and Lions. We did three game drives and luckily enough we saw Leopards every time! This female had a cub and wasn’t very happy to see us. This is quite a relaxed young male. A very venomous tree […]
I covered Elefest, a wildlife conservation festival last weekend. It’s the first of its kind in Zambia and about a thousand people showed. It was organized by Game Rangers International (GRI). GRI is a non-profit Zambian NGO working alongside the Zambia Wildlife Authority to protect wildlife. Below is a selection of photos from the festival and you will find all photos here.
Misisi Compound in Lusaka, Zambia, has been identified as one of the five worst slums in Sub Saharan Africa. Due to a lack of resources there has been poor record keeping, but according to best estimates, there are between 80 and 90,000 people living in the area. The average life expectancy is around 32 years. HIV/AIDS remains a huge problem. A majority of the children living here have lost at least one parent to the disease. There is also a prevalence of […]
