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

Lake Kariba Can

Driving in Africa is a different experience. When I take a look at GoogleMaps everything is flat and roads are solid lines. It gives off the impression of “ah, this will be a piece of cake!” That is a serious misconception. Sitting comfortably at a lodge in Victoria Falls we knew it was time for an adventure in the African bush. The goal of this particular journey was to drive around the fourth largest man-made lake in the world, Lake Kariba. We would be traveling through Zimbabwe. The drive would take us roughly 800 kilometers and there was no guarantee we’d find petrol … Read More

However, this is Africa, and we decided it was in our route and could not be missed. We had received word of hour long queues at the ATM’s and bank goers only being able to withdraw $60 at a time. So, before we crossed the Vic Falls Border we stopped in Livingstone, Zambia and made sure we had more than enough cash to get us around Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe’s currency has completely collapsed, so they have … Read More
