Meeting the San Bushmen

Today we left the Okovango Delta and made our way to the town of Ghanzi, known as “the capital of the Kalahari Desert”, the largest continuous stretch of sand in the world. With that said, you can imagine the vastness and aridity that characterise this area. Also, it is freaking hot! Currently it is leading towards […]

Getting lost in the Okovango Delta

It is about time, that we show you some impressions of our last days, that we spend right in the Okovango Delta. This magical place definitely deserves to be on your bucket list and if that is not the case yet, allow me to tell you a little bit about it.The Okovango Delta, which is one […]

A game cruise on the Chobe River

After crossing the border to Botswana and travelling all the way to the city Kasane, the gateway to the Chobe National Park, we ended the day with a game cruise on the Chobe River, which is a major watering spot for large breeding herds of elephants, as well as families of giraffe, sable and cape buffalo. […]

A sunset cruise on the Zambezi River

For the last two nights we have been staying at The Victoria Falls Waterfront Lodge in Zambia just a few minutes away from both the Victoria Falls and Livingstone. We had a fantastic stay in this beautiful place. The resort is situated at the riverside of the Zambezi, with a lively riverfront restaurant, bar and pool area […]

The Victoria Falls

Today we went to see the Victoria Falls, the worlds largest waterfall and it was without any doubt one of the most breathtaking views I have ever encountered. As the Zambezi, the river creating the Vic Falls is functioning as a natural border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, the falls are situated right in between them. This […]

A game drive at Hwange National Park

What a day! I am back at the camp and absolutely drained from today’s game drive at Hwange National Park. But there are a few things that i really want to write down before I crawl in my sleeping bag. Two things to be exact, both of them seen today during the drive. Let’s start. […]

Walking with lions

After a surprisingly easy border crossing we made our way to the Antelope Park in Zimbabwe. This park is a private game reserve and home to the ALERT lion rehabilitation program. The organisation has developed a multi-phase lion conservation initiative to ethically re-introduce the offspring of captive-bred endangered African lions back into the wild. Part […]

Krüger National Park!

Today was awesome! We left our campsite early in the morning to drive deeper in the Krüger National Park, where we have been on game drives for the whole day. The park is one of the biggest game reserves in Africa and has a the most species of large mammals of all of them. I […]

Tribal Dancing

So this happened tonight. After arriving at our campsite in the evening, setting up our tents and having the most delicious traditional South- African dinner ( Mielie Pap ), these men and women from the close-by living Shangaan tribe have welcomed us with traditional dancing and singing. After their performance they even invited us to […]

Africa – The Beginning of a New Adventure

We have just arrived in Johannesburg/ South Africa this morning and somehow we still have not fully realised what is laying ahead. From tomorrow on we will spend the next month on a safari through Southern Africa, discovering nature and cultures we have never experienced before (read more about the tour here). It is afternoon […]
