Etosha National Park Guide

Etosha National Park Etosha National Park is without a doubt one of the best value safaris in Southern Africa. The park offers some of the best game viewing in Southern Africa. However, it does come at a price as barren Etosha is far from the most beautiful national park. Despite this, the Etosha National Park is considered one of the best places to go on Safari in Southern Africa and for good reason. The lack of water in the area is also its saving grace as animals are concentrated at watering holes. The quality of roads, lack of huge crowds, and general ease … Read More

best place to go on safari in Southern Africa

Deciding on the best place to go on safari can be a difficult decision. I remember when we first landed in Africa and we just simply went to what we thought was the closest national park to Johannesburg. That happened to be Kruger National Park, and self-driving it ended up being one of the greatest decisions we made in Africa. We saw a plethora of wildlife on a self-drive safari and we had no idea what we were doing. Now, we’ve been to every major park in Southern Africa and have countless stories of spotting African wildlife in their natural … Read More

The cost to travel Africa

I came to Africa excited for the culture, the wildlife, and the landscapes. Now, I’m just trying not go broke. Don’t get me wrong I’m still excited about traveling the continent, but Africa is far from a cheap holiday destination. For a continent filled with developing nations, one would think the cost of traveling Africa would be relatively cheap. My god that couldn’t be further from the truth. Self-driving Africa has single handily been our most expensive endeavor yet and that is including our trip around Western Europe and Australia. However, it’s always been a dream of mine so I … Read More

A Namibian Road Trip

With all the difficulties it took to buy our Land Cruiser in South Africa, we had minimal time to plan the itinerary to our Namibian road trip. When we finally had the keys to Charlie, our Cruiser we had three days to leave South Africa, to service the truck, purchase gear, and pack all the equipment we needed to overland Africa for the next eight months. So when we arrived in Namibia is was a massive relief. Namibia proved to be a land of inhospitable beauty and quite possibly one of the most deserted countries we have ever traveled through. It is a … Read More

Travel Northern Namibia

The Northern section of Namibia is much more varied than Southern Namibia in terms of flora, fauna, and people.
