Nov. 18-Dec. 2
The land does not always change much when you cross a border, but there was a very clear difference between northern Malawi and southern Tanzania. In Malawi, the road followed the flat, grassy lakeshore. Shortly after entering…

TO STAY: We stayed in Masai Camp on the outskirts of Arusha on the Overlanding trip with Absoulte Africa – it’s a place to pop up your tent but is nothing special. See Lonely Planet’s write up here.

The Serengeti is a place i’ve dreamed of going, ever since I first saw David Attenborough’s documentaries when I was a little girl. To say I was excited about going is an understatement! We’d heard about…

Our cardinal rule for this trip has been no night time driving. Unfortunately there had been quite a bit of congestion at the border into Tanzania which took a big chunk out of our morning and the one place we…

Voor de thuisblijvers die denken dat alles hier fantastisch is en wij de hele dag zingend en high-fivend door Afrika rijden (en daar stiekem jaloers op zijn) is er goed nieuws. Wij hebben onze dag ook wel eens niet. Dan…

Shit. Met gierende banden naar een ziekenhuis in Dar es Salaam. Felice was ’s ochtends nog kiplekker, daarna zeeziek op de ferry terug van Zanzibar naar Dar en heeft ’s avonds ineens meer dan 40 graden koorts met overgeven en…

Wat een giller: Joost is door de Tanzaniaanse verkeerspolitie voor corrupt uitgemaakt! We zijn net twee dagen in Tanzania en al twee keer hebben we een boete voor te hard rijden. En dat loopt snel op als je bedenkt dat…

Travel fatigue

We’re both tired.
We have been on the road for more than 10 months now.  10 months of living out of the car.  10 months of the almost daily surprise of where to stay that night  10 months of sensory…

Our last rest day at Kipili wasn’t really as much of a rest as I had hoped – between chatting to people and cleaning, the day flew by far too fast.  I was determined to get this one at Kigoma…

It was a late decision to go into Katavi National Park. We had spent some time in the parks in Zambia and were uncertain what Katavi could offer. The US$100 entry fee for 24hours was also a factor in our…
