During our stay, my cousin Alex was kind enough to show us around the city of Lubumbashi, but also to show us a few places outside of the city to have some different experiences. Ferme Hasna, which translates to Hasna Farm in English, is so much more than the name entails. It offers a nice retreat from the city and allows a place to get in touch with nature, see some cool animals, relax and have fun all in one go.

First things first, there are peacocks. They strut around like they own the place and they move as a group. Like some kind of well-coifed posse. But besides the party of peacocks, there's Hasna itself. A charming place outside of the city where you can fish (and actually eat the fish you catch!), swim and ride motorbikes, and pet goats. I did not do any of the latter, unfortunately (although I did try the fish which was great), but credible sources say it's a real hoot-- especially on the weekends when its a full house. But we still had a great time walking among the peacocks, marvelling at Hasna's unique architecture, and taking in nature by the water.

Tips


1. If you want a really good time

Go on the weekends or check out their social media for when they have events going on.

2. If you want to take pictures

Go before sunset on a weekday. When we got there there weren't many people and we pretty much had the place for ourselves, this was fine because we got to explore calmly and take pictures without having to worry about people walking in and out of the shot.
