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

A Guide To Essaouira

We spent two weeks in the city, and never ran out of things to do in Essaouira. In fact, we kept extending our stay in the Moroccan coastal town. Read on to see our list of the best things to do in Essaouira. An introduction to Essaouira Essaouira is perched on a rocky outcrop with a medina that appears at any moment to be beaten back by the sea. Yet, after centuries of waves it stands defiantly.

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

zanzibar cafe

We were sitting in a small Zanzibar cafe in Stone Town off the coast of Tanzania. Stone Town is a city with a long history of trading in spices and slaves it brought great wealth to the city, but after the trade stopped everything appeared to freeze in time. We wandered around the hot streets of Stone Town until we started to make us crave something cold. We ventured into the Zanzibar Coffee House, which was humming with activity and had one table left. We were relegated to the table next to the door – a seat that is usually the most undesirable … Read More

We’ve been there, done it, and checked it off our … Read More

Five Reasons You Should Visit Malawi while Overlanding Africa

Visit Malawi

Besides the fact that Malawi is one of the smallest countries in Africa, and directly on our overland route through Africa, Malawi was a country I knew little about. I’ve met people that had traveled to Tanzania, South Africa, Namibia, and all the other “popular” African nations – but never had I met anyone that had been to Malawi. I knew that I had to visit Malawi while we were venturing around Africa. We crossed over the Chitipa Border Post from Zambia with very little expectations, and what we found shouldn’t be missed by anyone traveling around Southern and Eastern Africa.  … Read More

Big Five Animals in Africa

The Big Five Animals The Big Five animals are the following African wildlife: African Lion, African Leopard, Cape Buffalo, African Elephant, and the Rhinoceros. The moniker the “Big Five” refers to the five deadliest animals that were popular with big game hunters. However, it is now more commonly used on safari as the five animals to see. Many game reserves, parks, and safari operators use it as their main marketing term. It’s pretty much unavoidable to go on safari, plan a safari, or even think about a safari without coming across the term “The Big Five.” It’s also one of … Read More
