Tongabezi Treasures: A Photography Competition

Zambia is photogenic. We know this. We don’t have a best side, all our sides look great!

So we also know that when our guests leave Tongabezi they do so with a year’s worth of social-media-ready snaps. You’ve documented everything from the gorgeous copper shower-heads in your rooms to your death-defying dip in the infamous Devil’s Pool on the edge of Victoria Falls, haven’t you? Well, we want it all!

So share your Tongabezi memories with us. It’s not just about having a lovely nostalgic moment, you’ll also be entered into our brand-new photography competition.

What You Can Win

Every 3 months Tongabezi will select 3 winning photographs (one from each of the 3 categories) out of the photos submitted within that time period. Prizes will include a hamper delivered to your door or, if you would prefer, a free room for one night at Tongabezi for yourself or a friend (T&C apply). And of course you win the right to brag to all of your friends and family

How to Enter

Use the simple uploader on this web page to submit your images of (or around) Tongabezi. Make sure you pick the most relevant category for a better chance of winning.

Did you capture Captain Ronald looking particularly suave and captain-y on the Zambezi? Do you have an unbelievably romantic photo of you and your partner sitting on one of our river decks as the sun goes down? What about a snap of the local Simonga village or our adorable Tujatane students? A hilarious candid of your kids as they see their first crocodile? People are the soul of Tongabezi, so any photo of people stands the chance to win!

Think crocodiles, baobab trees, the lazy Zambezi as it floats past your room, monkeys on your deck, Victoria Falls as it is viewed from Livingstone Island. If you’ve captured a hippo's yawn or the dart of a kingfisher, or anything else that feels like the wild beating heart of Zambia, you stand the chance to win!

Okay so maybe you didn’t bungee or raft down grade 4 rapids (though if you did, we want to see!) but instead you had a particularly delicious island picnic or a beautiful dessert on our river decks, or perhaps you caught a tiger fish or used our gym and lap pool! Whatever it is, if you did it we want to see it, and you might just have the chance to win!
