Southern Africa: Memories to last a lifetime

October 28th, 2008

After filling our boots at the Billabong factory outlet shop in Jeffreys Bay, we drove to Port Elizabeth airport and hopped-on a short flight back to Cape Town to spend our last night in South Africa. Tomorrow we head north-east into a different country and continent — the United Arab Emirates in the Middle-East, Asia. […]

Backpacking Southern Africa: Did we need to be apprehensive?

October 24th, 2008

When we first announced to our friends, family and fellow travellers that we intended to travel independently through Southern Africa for just over three months, we were met with a lot of questions about personal safety, exotic illnesses, scary creatures and dire transport. As our trip loomed ever closer, we ourselves were apprehensive about these […]

Africa Insight: How long does it take to…?

September 5th, 2008

Everything takes much longer than one would imagine over here. As an example, let me share with you today’s task, which was to organise a 4×4 camping-car for an imminent tour of Namibia. We are currently in Botswana, the car-hire firm is based in Namibia, next door. Our mobile phone does not work in Botswana […]

Whilst some tourists take a scenic flight over the delta to comprehend is sheer size, I prefered to get a little closer to the waterways and take […]

Kasane to Maun: Early morning, dead legs, hard travel

September 3rd, 2008

We needed to get from Kasane, the gateway town to Chobe National Park, to Maun and the Okavango Delta. We were told that it could be done on public transport, although any further details were sketchy at best. The early bird catches the worm and we packed-away our tent in darkness at 04:20 to get […]

Chobe NP: One-way day-trip to Botswana

September 2nd, 2008

Next stop, Chobe National Park in Bostwana — our fourth African country. (I don’t count Morocco as being in Africa; it’s just a weird island all by itself.) We knew that getting around Botswana without our own transport was going to be difficult. In fact, getting to Chobe NP from Livingstone, Zambia, would involve five […]
