A week in the Garden Route, Western Cape

After we left the Addo Elephant Park, we had just a little over a week left on our South African visas. Since we had to get to the Namibian border before our time was up, which was over 1,000km away from Addo Elephant Park, we had to choose where to spend our last...
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...

Wandern und Wein in Stellenbosch

Südafrika ist berühmt für seine ausgezeichneten Weine und die wohl bekannteste Region für guten Wein ist Stellenbosch. Wir erreichen das kleine, herausgeputzte Städtchen Ende April und bleiben für einige Tage auf einem Campingplatz. Dort erhalten wir eine...

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...
Krüger National Park

Krüger National Park

Certainly, we had imagined beforehand that the “Krüger National Park” in South Africa would be one of the highlights of our Transafrican adventure … The reality turned out to be even more spectacular. With roundabout 20.000 square kilometres (half of...

How to cook crayfish on the braai

After spending months on an overland journey, cooking food on the braai (the Afrikaans word for barbeque or cooking on the fire) can become repetitive. With ingredients limited to meat, meat and more meat, it was long overdue for Lulu and I to try cooking something a...
Malawi 1

Malawi 1

Leaving the Zambian side of the border was incredibly easy, we were in and out in under 10 minutes.. The immigration and customs both knew what they were doing and pointed us to the Malawian customs. Again this was straight forward, and we managed a very jammy...
Namibia 4, Hunting!

As we drove out of Etosha we noticed a sign only a few kilometres out of the park saying Cheetahs. So we decided to go check it out. We drove up to the farm house and was greeted by the farmer who gave us a little explanation as to what they do and how they acquire...

Namibia 3, Etosha NP!

We headed into Grootfontein where we could stock up on supplies and finally buy Rob a cheap phone as he had lost his in Senegal. It was about time he got one and they had a good one on offer. Grootfontein seemed like a really nice town, but we didn’t hang around...
