Musi-o-Tunya Inter-Continental Hotel

Musi-o-Tunya Inter-Continental Hotel


The Inter-Continental Hotel (ICH) brand was established in 1946 by Juan Trippe, founder of Pan American Airways as a division of Pan Am. In 1968, the Inter-continental Hotel, Lusaka was opened. The building was designed by William B. Tabler who was known for designing hotels for efficiency rather than charm. The interiors were designed by Neal Prince.

Musi-o-Tunya Inter-Continental Hotel was designed by the same team and based in Livingstone. Also built in 1968, it had 100 air-conditioned rooms, a specialty restaurant, two informal restaurants, a cocktail lounge, and a bar.

The hotel was managed by a German Rotarian couple by the name of Ernest and Maria Mueller.
