Volcano Virgins

Our plans to hike the Nyragongo Volcano in the DRC were preceded by a few nights at the Discover Rwanda hostel in Gisenyi, Rwanda. It was here while hunting for lunch that we stumbled upon the strangely misplaced Calafia Café. Describing itself as “California Style”...

Namibia 5, family!

Namibia 5, family!

We  headed to the next big town called Kamanjab were we would meet Achi (Achi2Africa). After hours on the dead straight roads we soon arrived into the dusty town and would meet Achi at the Oppi-Koppi rest camp. This place was amazing as it had been welcoming...

Transiting Tanzania

Malawi 2

Malawi 2

We had a quick stopover in Mzuzu to stock up on food and cash, the best bit being you go to shoprite and these men come up to you selling you veg at half the price of the supermarket. They give you a list of what they have, you go in and get the other bits and by the...

warten auf das Beast … in Südafrika

Wir sind in Kapstadt gelandet, jedoch fühlen wir uns noch nicht, als ob wir in Afrika angekommen wären. Die Stadt ist sehr geschäftig, es leben viele Weiße hier und man kann alles kaufen. Die Straßen sind sehr gut und selbst das Wetter empfinden wir alles andere als...
