Zambia Camp Offers Special Monthly Full-Moon Dinner

This sounds like a wonderful way to have dinner in Zambia: Once a month, Chiawa Camp offers the Full Moon Chiawa Island Dinner. The surprise is when the event will take place, a decision the managers make depending on the weather and moon position. So, if guests' timing is right, they can try an authentic African menu on an island in the Lower Zambezi National Park.

The menu features a traditional braai (BBQ) with entrees including pepper-crusted fillet steak, chicken and vegetable kebabs, boerewors (South African spicy beef sausage) and Chiawa’s “lion stick bread” from the grill. 

Zambian dishes include maize meal (like grits), pumpkin or sweet potato (helped along the way with cinnamon), “kariri” – a tomato and onion sauce that goes with the maize meal and boerewors, kapenta (deep fried “whitebait” fish from Lake Kariba) and a three-bean mix. Sides include beer bread, baked on the fire in the pot with Zambia’s Mosi beer as a chief ingredient, and malva pudding, a sponge bake with syrup, served with crème anglaise.
