With 5 acres to yourself, you’ll have some of the most magnificent views in Lusaka in your back yard! When you start planning for your dream home, why not start with the view you want to wake up to every morning?
Whether you are planning a home for retirement, a space to raise children, or an urban retreat to escape city life, the opportunities to make the most of your private outdoor areas are endless. Imagine enjoying your morning tea listening to the chattering of birds before your drive to work, watching your children have birthday parties around your pool area, or hosting scrumptious and intimate dinner parties for your friends around an outdoor fireplace. Here are some of our favorite ideas for planning for the perfect view that will suit your style.

If you’re considering a traditional home at Bonanza, why not consider a detached outdoor fire-pit? With an elegant and simple stone path from the house, we’re dreaming of cool evenings and great company to share the space with. Consider using Zambezi crazy paving to achieve this look.
Modern homes with sleek and minimalist appearances can actually complement the beauty of the surrounding nature. We love the clean lines and simplicity that allow you to appreciate the spectacular views all round. In this photo, we love the ‘safari-feel’ of the wooden deck and the indigenous trees, it helps blend the natural element with the modern theme.
This photo makes us feel like the beach is just a step away! While we can’t get to the ocean too easily from Lusaka, consider the sloped edge to this pool to bring ocean-living a little closer to home. The stone and plant-life border to the pool will help situate your pool within your natural surroundings at Bonanza. Now we just need some cocktails and little umbrellas….
A plot at Bonanza will be perfect for homeowners considering a Rustic theme. Rather than alter the view around you, it’ll take as little as a swing chair to appreciate the views exactly as they are! With this look, you’ll be able to enjoy all of Lusaka’s seasons as they come, and to make the most of existing birdlife, wildflowers, and trees. Luckily, swing chairs are available in Lusaka readily at Mica Arcades, as well as the home furnishing shops around town.
Who says you have to reinvent the wheel when you move to Bonanza? We love this look as a refreshed take on a traditional garden. Planting colorful shrubs that are available throughout Lusaka’s garden supply shops are a quick and easy way to have a refined lawn area. A clean and polished path provides updating to the midcentury gardens found in town, and some simple tiki lamps require no electricity in the garden but will make you feel like you are in a private paradise, which of course, you are!
