Getting off the Beaten Track

After Mulanje we were feeling quite shattered and it was time to chill on the lake for a bit. After a few hops along the lake, we heard about Zulunkhuni River Lodge in Ruarwe. There were no roads leading to the lodge and you had the choice of hiking in, getting a fishing boat or catching the Ilala ferry. The Ilala only came once a week and it meant doing a big day of driving to catch it at its next stop, fishing boat hires were expensive so we went with the hiking option(after first [...]

Climbing Mulanje

We stopped our northerly trek and went down south a bit so we could climb Mount Mulanje. We stayed at Likhubula Forest Lodge and spent our first day on the bikes. We thought we’d do a lap of the mountain, but didn’t realise that this meant 120km! Although it got pretty hot in the second part of the ride and we were doing interval pieces of 20min crawling along, 10min sitting under a tree, we still enjoyed the ride and seeing what villages were like in more isolated areas. We realised that coke isn’t something [...]

Our second set of African school fees

We had a bit of admin that we needed to do so decided the next stop would be the city of Lilongwe, but not before we paid our next set of African school fees. In Chipata, just before the Zambia/Malawi border the supermarket carpark was filled with money changers. I’d specially looked up the rate earlier to make sure that I didn’t get cheated. At home I’m an actuary, I do maths for a living, numbers are my thing. But apparently I’m not very good at muliplying by 750. The guy had offered me a [...]

South Luangwa

Our arrival at South Luangwa made the fine a distant memory. We got a campsite at Wildlife Camp right on the river and got there in time to see the most amazing sunset. There were a few overlander groups there so we got to meet some new people and spend the evenings having drinks with them. The next morning we got up early to be at the park as soon as the gates opened. Park fees weren’t cheap and we were going to get our money’s worth. We spent almost 12 hours in the park [...]

Zambia and our first set of African school fees

After forking out too many dollars for a few too many days around Vic Falls, we decided to get off the tourist route for a bit. James has family in Lusaka who we went to stay with. In Lusaka we went to see Lilayi elephant orphanage. They are raising baby elephants that have been orphaned due to poaching and then slowly release them into Kafue National Park. It was great watching the little babies playing in the mud. After cycling out there and watching the ellies being fed, we decided to see the main lodge. [...]

Zambian Politicians and Zimbabwean Entrepreneurs

We learnt many lessons crossing the Kazangula border the next morning. For anyone crossing this border: Keep some Pula on you - you’ll pay about 4 times as much for the ferry if you only have dollars on you. As a passenger, stay close to your car – I ended up staying in Botswana watching James and Huberta cruise off across to Zambia without me! Buy your third party insurance for the same period as what you need your Comesa. We’ve ended up paying for our Zambian third party insurance twice. Fill your tank before [...]

TRAVEL GUIDE

Keep safe out there!

Safety is key when touring Africa. Help can be far away and medical attention can be even further. Small decisions can have cumulative affects and keeping calm and level headed will make all the difference. I remember taking three Argentinean friends on a hastily planned trip to Gonerezhou national park in South Easten Zimbabwe. I have visited the region many times before but never in (rainy session) January. We left on warm summer Saturday morning in early January and hoped to return the following Saturday [...]
