One of our favourite places in Lusaka is the Gigibonta Ice Cream shop, it’s been a part of our lives since it opened on Cairo Road 5 years ago, and we’ve never looked back. It’s been the place for some of our most treasured moments and meetings. For example, it’s where we first met one of our favourite songstresses, Chembo!
Gigibonta is where we go for our guilty “before dinner ice cream”, to reward ourselves when we clinch a deal, and for a “pick me up” when we don’t.
The staff have always been super friendly, and make us feel at home, even when we are severely indecisive about whether to get our favorites, ‘Spagnola’ and ‘Panacotta’, or try something more olive-infused.
We are firm believers in having a list of people you’d love to work with – if ever given the opportunity, and we can reveal that Gigibonta was right up there with the Vogue’s and Pandora’s of this world.
So it’s with great excitement that we announce the official ‘MaFashio’ gelato flavor!
A fashion inspired, authentic Italian ice cream that’s Vanilla based and infused with roses, we believe the MaFashio flavor is a perfect pairing for all your existing Gigibonta faves. We settled on this fresh spring/summer flavor because we always compared the act of picking our Gigibonta flavors to putting pieces together in our wardrobe, it’s about contrasting the hard and the soft, the light and the dark, the sweet and the tangy, to create the perfect ensemble!
So, we cordially invite you to join us as we get Summer Ready with GigiBonta!
Many thanks to Marco Pezzoli and the awesome creative team at Gigibonta for everything, what an honor to be a part of celebrating Gigibonta’s 5th Birthday!
