The awe-inspiring Etosha National Park

The awe-inspiring Etosha National Park

Etosha National Park (or just Etosha for short) in Namibia was my first experience game-driving (or safari as it’s otherwise called – it’s so awesome it gets two names!) and it was one that I won’t be forgetting in a hurry.  We arrived mid-afternoon, set up camp and then headed out on a two hour...

Random stops and the Cape Cross Seal Colony

Random stops and the Cape Cross Seal Colony

So.  After I almost died in the Namibian Desert *ahem* we decided to have a few days of driving and when I say ‘we decided’ what I really mean is that it was on the itinerary and I was REALLY happy to be lazy for a few days whilst we made our way further into...

How I almost died on Dune 45 in the Namib Desert*

How Africa steals your dignity

How Africa steals your dignity

Whenever you think of Africa and going to the toilet, you probably think about awful long-drop toilets that stink with flies swarming around and you’d be right…some of the time. For the rest of the time, when overlanding, you’re going to be using a totally different kind of toilet that looks a lot like this:...

PHOTO ESSAY: Fish River Canyon, Namibia

After just a few days on the road of my African adventure, we had already left South Africa and headed into the gorgeous Namibia and we ran straight for the hills; well, canyon anyway; Fish River Canyon to be exact.  Did you know that it’s the second largest canyon in the world after the Grand...

Soul searching in Namibia

Soul searching in Namibia

I’m going off topic today. No Africa talk, just a post of self-reflection and honesty whilst I’m on the road. But first I want to tell you about two quotes I came up with. And when I say ‘came up’, what I really mean is that I opened my mouth and they just came out…....

Hi All, I literally have no time to update sadly. I have just half an hour before we head out to dinner where we get to try all sorts of game meat from Zebra Springbok, Ostrich and Oryx to name just a few – uber cool. Well, so what have I been up to for...
