Kilindi Zanzibar Review

Kilindi Zanzibar Beach Resort We’d been on Zanzibar for nearly two weeks by the time we checked into Kilindi Zanzibar and had high hopes after the few photos we had seen of the resort. Kilindi is a collection of well-spaced white domed villas that look as if they were built for a sultan. Although no Sultan was involved in the making they do feel fit for a King and Queen. We found Kilindi Zanzibar to be the best escape for anyone looking for romance or a honeymoon on Zanzibar. The Pavilions The pavilions at Kilindi are one of a kind, designed … Read More

Overlanding with your own vehicle in Africa is not always easy, to say the least. The friendly Zambian staff greeted us with a refreshing aperitif and told us not to worry about anything and led us to our home for the next few days. Each room at Tongabezi has its own appointed valet. This personal valet watches over you and your room and makes sure you have … Read More

Life on the Chobe River

It was a sad day when we had to leave Namibia and cross the border into Botswana. We had come to admire the desert country during our month there. We felt especially fond for the Caprivi strip. However, we crossed over the Ngoma border post and geared up to explore more of Africa. The brand new Chobe Water Villas were awaiting us.  Cruising into Chobe Water Villas We didn’t miss Namibia too long, though, because two hours later we were crossing the Chobe River and getting our passports stamped back into Namibia.

Living on the Zambezi Queen

In Africa celebrations are special like the taking a birthday cruise on the Zambezi Queen. When I turned 25 last year on the road it was nothing special. I wouldn’t go so far as to call it a bad day, but spending it in a lifeless tourist town in Turkey was not ideal. Our food options boiled down to two restaurants in town, and since we had seen the famous cotton castle the day before there was nothing more to do in town. So, we spent the day holed away in our hotel room.  The Zambezi Queen However, my 26th birthday … Read More

Travel Northern Namibia

The Northern section of Namibia is much more varied than Southern Namibia in terms of flora, fauna, and people. Here you can find what is often referred to as the Skeleton Coast, a coastal German enclave, true wilderness, and innumerable wildlife. Our route stretched from Walvis Bay on the coast all the way across the country and to the end of the Caprivi Strip. Stops along the way included entrancing tribal villages, lush green forests, and the famous Etosha National Park. Our last post detailing travel in Southern Namibia ended at the Tropic of Capricorn. So, that is where we will … Read More
