Serengeti, Falls and Cape Part Ten – Namibian Sand Dunes

Namibia The day began with a medium-length journey as we departed the granite landscapes of Spitzkoppe. (It was seven and a half hours, but at this point we’d had much longer drives so it didn’t feel too tedious). Today’s destination was Swakopmund; “mund” means mouth in German and this coastal city is situated at the … More Serengeti, Falls and Cape Part Ten – Namibian Sand Dunes

Serengeti, Falls and Cape Part Four – Zambia

Malawi After a 5am wake up to watch our final Malawian sunrise, we began our departure out of the country through Nkotakhota National Park. At 1,800km² it is the largest, and also the oldest wildlife reserve in Malawi. Sadly, poaching almost eliminated all of the animals in the park, but in 2015 other reserves throughout … More Serengeti, Falls and Cape Part Four – Zambia
