Back in South Africa

Back in South Africa

Hurrah!! After a bit of a palaver and fretting about South Africa’s new 2014 immigration law, we were chuffed to be allowed back into South Africa at the Platjan border crossing over the Limpopo. Click on the links below to see the stories: ‘Can we...
Post-script on Zim

Post-script on Zim

As we leave Zimbabwe for the second time on this trip, we think it worth reflecting on the whole of our time spent in this controversial but extraordinary country:  ‘controversial’ because of the political regime – is it right to come here and tacitly support the...

Worth it at Victoria Falls

Worth it at Victoria Falls

We couldn’t get this close to Victoria Falls without making the most of it could we? From our near border campsite last night we took the road first to Zimbabwe, the side from which the views of Victoria Falls are by far the most spectacular. It did mean a marathon...
