Smuggler’s* Brothel**

We forgot to mention in the last update that before Leaving Livingstone we were faced with a choice, a.) drive up the road to Lusaka for 8-10 hours or b.) find a scenic campground half-way down the road and watch the sun go down over Lake Kariba. Being the adventurous...
Cursing in the Big City

Cursing in the Big City

The first thing any local will mention if you bring up Lusaka is the traffic. Despite what they say, we managed to get across Lusaka during rush hour, from Cosmopolitan Mall to Big Chicken Roundabout, in a mere 30 minutes. Not too shabby. Big Chicken Roundabout, the...

Zambia 3

I was hoping that this post would be all about the amazing animals we saw in South Luangwa National Park.. This will happen later on but currently the car has decided we have had too much fun, and too few problems and thrown a teenage tantrum (being 20 years old I...

Namibia 2

Rob and I were on own for the first time in many years, after living with Robs parents who so kindly put us up to help save for this trip of a lifetime. We were both feeling excited and nervous to see how we would cope, just the two of us. We decided it would be the...

Going Pro

By the time we arrived in Livingstone it was clear from other overland travelers we met that we needed to step up our game. We needed to do some education, networking, training and self promotion to get our start up off the ground. Our first night in Livingstone was...

Zambia 2

We had just said our goodbyes to the parents, who had left for Botswana and then on to Johannesburg in South Africa to drop off their hired car (Bushlore) and catch their aeroplane back to England. We were left with just the 4 of us, and gosh, did it seem quiet. But...

We stayed at the Water front lodge for another 3 nights, in that time the boys managed to fit the parts to the cars, tinker and fix ongoing problems (our oil leak.. Which is still there a week or so later!). On the Saturday evening we had heard there was a wedding at...

Earning Your Ferry Wings

Earning Your Ferry Wings

A guide to crossing into Zambia at the Kazungula border crossing. Rule #1: You are not a truck driver. Do not join the truck queue! This beastly queue extends for kilometers. The ferry’s can only manage one truck at a time and preference is given to passenger...

Onwards from here..

In my last blog I wrote we had a lot of decisions to make in the upcoming days.. Our plans have changed so many times already, countries we want to visit, time and the order we visit them due to costs and route restraints. Money is sadly also becoming a...

Zambia 1

Arriving to the Zambian border control we were again pleasantly surprised to see things were fairly organised still – all customs, immigration and insurance were in the same building with signs! We had been told that the visa was in dollars only, but I had...

Zambia

We arrived at the Zambian border post and we were shocked to find out just how much we needed to pay. The visa was $50 per person, road tax was $20, insurance was 300kwachas, carbon tax was 150kwachas and community tax was 30kwachas. That’s a grand total of £120...
Namibia visit 1

Namibia visit 1

I call this blog visit 1 because we are only passing through the top of Namibia to get across to Zambia to meet Charles and Mandy’s family on 18th April. We are driving across the Caprivi strip to cross the border, however, it has worked out well this way as it...
