A Look Back at 2017

2017 wasn’t a good blogging year for us, but it’s hard to keep up and stay motivated when you try to get back in the game after a break and your posts only reach a few percent of all our followers. But we will try to write some more blog posts from our previous travels […]

Meeting Mountain Gorillas: A Once In A Lifetime Experience

The clock turned 05:00 am and the alarm rang, finally! We had been sleeping on and off during the whole night as our bodies were filled with excitement. You know that feeling as a kid waiting for Christmas Eve or Christmas morning. You just can’t fall asleep because of the presents waiting to be unwrapped. […]

First Travel Plans Made for 2017

Our next adventure is right around the corner (we’re flying out on Sunday 6th of November), and this time we are going to Costa Rica (weee! only ONE day left). We will be driving around in a rental car and experience different parts of the country. Also we will take a day trip to Nicaragua, just […]

Last Day in Africa – Lots of Fun!

The end of this great adventure approached, but we had one last whole day left in Africa, and we had many of those hours on our own. We had planned some pretty awesome stuff to do. At 06:10 we got picked up at the hotel to enjoy one last game drive in a private game […]

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

It was border-crossing day, and we left the lodge in Botswana around 07:30. After a short drive we entered the border; first we had to check out of Botswana and then drive for another 100m to apply for visas and check into Zimbabwe. We got a double visa for Zimbabwe and Zambia since the others […]

Chobe River Safari

Soaking wet from the time in the Okavango Delta we had to spend an hour in the 4×4 to get to our truck. So wet, so cold, but we finally got the chance to change our clothes and even take a shower if we wanted. We then had a stop in Maun to buy some […]

Okavango Delta

After days out in the Namibian Desert we were ready to meet the wet elementary, and who knew that it could be that wet. It was time for the tented part of the trip; it was Okavango Delta time! A river delta usually leads to the open sea, but in Botswana the Okavango River empties onto […]

Hello Botswana!

We woke up before sunrise and had breakfast before we drove towards the border between Namibia and Botswana. First we had to stamp out of Namibia, and then we checked into Botswana. After a couple of minutes of driving we stopped for lunch near a gas station and then we drove to a camp for […]

Etosha National Park

It was time to leave the desert and head towards Etosha National Park for some game drive. Etosha NP covers an area of more than 22.000 sqkms. In its center lies a vast salt pan surrounded by grasslands and thorn savannah, Mopane bushland in the west and dry forest in the north-east. We woke up […]

Swakopmund and Damaraland

After two days at the Desert Camp we unfortunately had to check out and leave the area, heading for Swakopmund. We had a few stops along the road for photo opportunities, and we ate lunch at a parking lot in Walvis Bay (30 kilometers south of Swakopmund), where we could spot hundreds of flamingos and […]
