Walking and petting a cheetah in Zambia is one of the most unique things that I have done in my travels. I heard about this opportunity while I was still in Asia and since then just couldn’t get it out of my head. I’ve played with tigers in Thailand and now I really wanted to walk this majestic animal!

Dar Es Salaam to Malawi. Border crossing

Dar Es Salaam to Malawi. Border crossing

Oh boy border crossings in Africa are difficult. Long trips from one country to another are exhausting and Dar Es Salaam to Malawi is no different. There is no easy and cheap way.

How to ride a Dala- Dala in Zanzibar

How to ride a Dala- Dala in Zanzibar

If you want to get a real taste of Zanzibar, you must take a trip with local Dala-Dala instead of a taxi. Riding local buses is an experience itself, as you will rarely meet other tourists. It’s not only much cheaper but you also get to know local people better. You would be surprised what locals are traveling with; almost every person is carrying a […]

Healthy homemade muesli

Healthy homemade muesli

Most of the places I travel (meaning 3rd world countries) only has imported muesli, which means it will cost you around £7 for a small bag and will last approximately up to one week.

Visiting Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage

Visiting Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage

I’ve always been fascinated by elephants but the first time I encountered an elephant in a non zoo environment back in 2013, when I rode around and washed them in Chang Mai, left me with beautiful pictures, however oddly cold feelings. It was my first big trip and everything around felt so exciting, including elephant rides. But if I had to choose now, I wouldn’t […]
