We arrived to Windhoek from Cape Town with Intercape bus and on the way were greeted by approaching rock formations and empty roads. After picking up the rental car we headed to shops to stock up on food and drink supplies and spend the following night in a hotel before setting up for a three week self drive adventure around Namibia. To really take in […]
Malawi is one of the friendliest places I’ve encountered; called ‘the Warm heart of Africa’ in the native language it lives to its name. Malawi is surprisingly diverse country that is just waiting to be explored. It contains Africa’s third largest lake- Lake Malawi that offers opportunities to dive, snorkel, kayak or just simply relax and is one of the highlights of the continent. Many […]
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! When I arrived in Livingstone, I […]
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. You can fly but that would leave you $300 short. I’ve read many different options that people used to travel this route but here is what conclusion I came to. Taqwa bus […]
Of course, the beaches of Zanzibar are stunning, but Stone Town, UNESCO World Heritage Site in Zanzibar City, once the center for the East African slave and ivory trade is now filled with fascinating history and welcoming local people greeting you with ‘Jambo’ on every street. Stone Town isn’t just any town. It is a sensory experience not to be found anywhere else in the world […]
Few places in the world can produce images of white powdered sandy beaches, pristine turquoise waters and tropical palm-tree paradise. Zanzibar is one of them. I can safely say, I found my personal slice of paradise there.
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 […]
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. Get some fruits and milk on top, and you’re looking at luxury priced hotel breakfast. Not ideal if you’re trying to budget. Here is the solution I came up with.
Travelling can do all sorts of crazy things to your body. Different weather, water, routine, food, add long days in the sun, too much booze and you’re in a risk of getting unwell. But, there are some simple things that worked for me and we can all do to stay a little healthier and a little happier while traveling.
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 […]
