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

What to pack when you overland Africa

It’s official, after spending two months in Cape Town we have purchased a Toyota Landcruiser and we’re currently driving across Africa!

The Perfect African Honeymoon

First things first – Cameron and I are not married, nor are we engaged. However, given that we are a traveling couple in our mid-twenties we get asked quite a bit about honeymoon destinations. The question “where would you recommend for our honeymoon?” pops up in our inbox often and we love shedding light on the subject. Many North Americans turn to the Caribbean or Europe given the close proximity to North America. For similar reasons, Australians may turn to Southeast Asia for the perfect getaway. These continents are fantastic! We love sipping cappuccinos in Italy, dancing through the streets … Read More
