Mozambique #paradise

Driving from Malawi over the border to Mozambique was like driving from day to night. It went from abundant yellow-green tea fields, to the dry arid emptiness of Mozambique’s wilderness. We had entered right into the middle of Mozambique, having received many warnings...
Malawi, the Warm Heart of Africa.

Malawi, the Warm Heart of Africa.

Malawi! Where to begin? You are a long thin country, half of which is a body of water. You have layers of rubbish littering not only that body of water, but the land and streets. From time to time, you feel dirty. You are economically poor, of this I am certain. And...
RWANDA – Land of a Thousand Hills

RWANDA – Land of a Thousand Hills

Uganda, the Pearl of Africa

With this blogpost I have more to say than to highlight our travels through Uganda, which was a very peaceful 4 weeks absorbing the beauty of a very diverse country. Until we came here, we had been accustomed to driving long distances between places in fairly huge...

TANZANIA, Land of Karibu. Part 1

Part 1. (Realising that our time so far in Tanzania has been so rich, and that thus far we have only covered half the country, I decided to split this blogpost into two parts. The first covering the west and south of the country. The second half will cover the east...
