Here we go again. I am at the airport in Paris, my flight will bring me back to Dar Es Salaam via Doha. I have organized this trip at the last moment between meetings and business trips, so I am…

  Hot. Zambia is hot. The Luangwa river – the only perennial water point in South Luangwa National Park – was very low and the hippos were struggling to find deep enough pools. Our campsite up the sandbanks seemed to…

Na de modderwegen van Noord Kenia dachten we het ergste qua wegen wel gehad te hebben! Vanaf de grens met Ethiopie zouden er redelijk goede asfaltwegen liggen die ons naar Awasa en Addis Abeba zouden brengen. De eerste uren waren…

We pulled into town on the afternoon bus from Saigon. Heat waves shimmered off the pavement, and the smell of pungent fish sauce assaulted our sinuses. Saigon, our entry point into Vietnam, had been sheer chaos. Amazing, intriguing, delicious and…

  We have realised that 24hours in one place gives you just enough time to put down your things before you set off again, therefore leaving you feeling not very rested. Wherever possible we try to stay at least 2…

We dachten dat we een tak raakte met de auto toen we de camping in Nairobi verlieten maar er was geen boom te bekennen! Oké… bij nader onderzoek bleek dat we óf een elektriciteitskabel óf een telefoonkabel uit de lucht…

Roofdieren zaten er niet in het Hell’s Gate National Park dus mocht je er ook fietsen en na ruim 15.000km in de auto vonden wij dat een strak plan! En leuk is het zeker om op je fietsje langs zebra’s,…

In Gisenyi in Rwanda verbleven we in een lodge (Paradise Malahide) aan Lake Kivu en vlakbij de kerk. Daardoor werden we gedurende de dag getrakteerd op gezang van het gospel-koor in de kerk én van de vissers op het water!…

  Tanzanian internet is not at its best this time of year it seems, apologies for the delay in updating. The further south we go, the more of a burden Emma becomes… On a South African passport, I’m crossing borders…

As of Thanksgiving, I will have been gone from home for 17 months and 2 days.  I never planned to be gone this long, and my journey has taken me to places and feelings I never expected.  Most of all,…

The Galapagos islands are famous for their wildlife. And now, having visited we understand that the reputation is well deserved. With marine iguanas so numerous and unafraid that you have to consciously try to avoid stepping on them, it feels…

  Leaving Bwindi felt like waking up from a dream, and I expected it to be more like falling out of my bed. Rwandan authorities are notorious for almost strip-searching you looking for plastic bags (illegal in the country), forcing…

In Kigali hebben we enkel wat rondgewandeld en het genocide monument en museum bezocht. En dat was erg indrukwekkend! Met verhalen én foto’s werd verteld wat er in die drie maanden in 1994 is gebeurd… En dat was ronduit gruwelijk!…

We twijfelden in het begin even; wordt er in Rwanda echt rechts gereden? Er is nauwelijks verkeer dus tja zeg het maar…dus maar in het midden rijden tot er een tegenligger komt! Onze reis heeft ons dus inmiddels in Kigali…
