Hello World

It was past 2 a.m. when the dad elephant gently brushed by my tent and woke me up. I had called it an early night after I had lost at darts against Nika and Smokey, two consultants of a Zimbabwean NGO who visited Mfuwe to help develop the community. A pale skinny guy had walked up to […]

Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else. Leonardo DaVinci Wtf… I was so done with Zimbabwe before I even visited the Victoria Falls. Shortly after I arrived from Botswana on a Friday morning, I decided to run the usual i-just-crossed-the-border errands. Take out money in the local currency (US dollars), purchase a simcard/cut it to […]

My 2 Cents on Victoria Falls
May 20, 2015

Victoria Falls is the tourist attraction no 1 in Southern Africa, hence it deserved its own post. The UNESCO world heritage site and most expensive tourist attraction on the continent is shared between Zimbabwe and Zambia. The morning after the fabulous afternoon river cruise on the Chobe River, two South African couples offered me a cup of […]

Life is the art of drawing without an eraser   9. Bus ride from Namibia to Botswana Pleasant surprise. I figured I would have to go through the not too exciting capital city in order to cross over from Namibia to Botswana. Instead I made it from Windhoek to Maun by public bus in only […]

I love to travel but I hate to arrive. Albert Einstein Was it a mistake to visit the most beautiful African country at the beginning of my RTW trip? Possibly. Consider yourself warned if you choose to travel to Namibia! I am only 43 days into my Africa trip and it already takes more than […]

Do what you fear and fear disappears Swakopmund is the African adventure destination #1, so I decided it was the perfect moment for my first skydive. And here is the unedited version of the jump 🙂 I loved it 🙂 Best African adventure ever!!! And the road trip continues 🙂

Despite the heavy rain on the way up from the Waterberg Plateau we arrived at Etosha National Park just before the gates of the park closed. Our moment of the day 🙂   How does a typical day in Etosha National Park look like? Be patient during the early morning self-drive safari while the springboks […]

After diving with the great white sharks and a few more days in and around Cape Town, I was ready to travel to Namibia. It took 21 hours and 4 stops at the South African-Namibian border (passport, body search, and the same all over again) until my bus finally arrived in Windhoek. I did not […]

Cape Town & the African Penguins
March 23, 2015

Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer (Lloyd speaking the truth after the second beer on Long Street) I have only been in the city for a week now, but Cape Town has exceeded my expectations. I actually found myself naming it the “Barcelona of Africa” on several occasions. Coming from […]
