Rare View of LAKE TANGANYIKA

This vast inland sea was first made known to the European world in the mid 1800’s by the English explorers Richard Burton and John Speke. They pursued it as the source of the Nile, arriving at its shores in February of 1858, only to discover that the Ruzizi River in the north, which they thought to be the Nile, flowed into and not out of the lake. (Their incredible journey is documented in the movie ‘Mountains of the Moon’.) Tanganyika’s waters lap Tanzania, Burundi, Congo DR and Zambia. It is the longest fresh water lake in the world and the second deepest after lake Baikal in Russia. The immense depth is because it lies in the Great Rift Valley, which also has created its steep shoreline. It reaches a depth of 1433 metres (4 700 feet), which is an astounding 642m below sea level.

Comp-It: Bringing Zambia to You

We are living in a golden era ladies and gentlemen, and my home nation of Zambia is no exception. Despite the normalised conversation of a struggling economy, I still genuinely believe consumerism in Zambia is on the rise. From my observation, despite harsher economic times than at the tip of the millennium, people are STILL constantly looking for new ways to entertain themselves with the loose change in their pockets. With this increase, has come the rise of e-commerce and Internet-based organisations such as the one you’re about to be introduced to. For the longest time, Zambia has needed an (efficient) directory, one which showcases the best of the country’s services, whether it’s booking flights and accommodation for tourists, or the latest urban and cultural events for the locals, the solution we have all been begging for is finally here: Welcome to Comp-It! Taking full advantage of the digital age […]
