While planning our vacation to Australia to visit family, my wife and I decided to break the long flight by flying via Singapore. This is what we did with our 10 hours there, and a few of tips if you're planning to do the same.
I’ve decided to set a New Year's resolution: I am going to dedicate my available weekends to discovering my new back garden – the Zululand and KZN North Coast areas – and I am dubbing it Discovering Zululand.
Armed with a brand-new GoPro camera, I set about filming the elephants at Savute Channel, a major highlight in the Linyanti Concession.
I joined Simon Dures, a lion researcher, as he stalked lion in Botswana in order to gather some DNA samples, and got the chance to find out more about Simon's work in the area.
I have recently moved to the town of Mtunzini, along the northern coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal. One of the fist things I discovered was the dilapidated railway station.
Out in the wilderness of Botswana, the dry winter season has made its mark. The once lush trees now stand bare, almost completely stripped of their leaves. The many large pans, normally a good source of water, have all dried up, forcing the wildlife down to the Savute channel for water.
Part one in a story of a roadtrip to Mozambique from Botswana in a Suzuki Jimny.
I have always dreamt of owning a Land Rover and exploring every corner of the African continent. The Suzuki Jimny turned out to be exactly what I was looking for.
Whilst out on leave in September I enjoyed some blissful weather conditions along South Africa’s famed Garden route. So you can imagine the shock when I landed in Botswana only to be greeted by the warmest weather I have ever experienced.
