Okavango Delta by boat. The Okavango Delta is a massive delta filled with waterways in the north of Botswana. It can be seen from a vehicle, a local canoe called the mokoro, by speedboat or from the air. Starting out in a speedboat from the nearby city of Maun, you cruise along at a good […]
White water rafting is awesome! And what better place to try it out than on the Zambezi river in Zambia, running 25 rapids below the power of Victoria Falls. White water rafting here is grade 5 rapids. To give you an idea, grade 6 is the highest grade! So grade 5 for a complete beginner […]
East Africa is famous for its wildlife and safaris. Names like the Serengeti and Masai Mara are synonymous with great wildlife viewing on the open savannah, and less known names like South Luangwa are amazing for their more personal enclosed feeling surrounded by forest.

It doesn’t have the grand savannahs of the Serengeti in Tanzania, or the vast wildlife scenes, but it makes up for that by it’s sheer beauty and wildness. South Luangwa is situated in Northern […]
Lake Malawi, a relaxing place to chill out for a while. Having raced to get to a steamship called Ilala at Nkhata Bay, it was time to get cruising on the boat. Getting on board was a mission in itself. On a darkened beach in the bay two life-boats came within ten metres of the […]
The dream of Malawi. A small country halfway down East Africa, with its lake and beaches and relaxed vibe, the perfect stop for a while from harder African travel. With a steamship leaving from the northern shores of the lake in 3 days time, a steamship that we really wanted to get, the race was […]
