Loango… “Africa’s Last Eden”

In 2003, Gabon made the declaration to dedicate 10% of the total land to conservation and land protection. The results… 13 gorgeous national parks as far as the eye can see.

Eat, Dance and Live Your Way Through Africa in 2019

Inspiration /

Just like everyone else “Travel More” is on my resolution list once again. I can say that this goal was somewhat achieved last year, but this is the year of bigger and better! I found a way to travel from coast to coast, and across Africa this year, and here is how … FESTIVALS! Festivals […]

Kit-Mikayi: Rock of Love

Kit-Mikayi: Rock of Love

Kenya / The editorial choices /

Over the holidays, I got to go on a rock climbing expedition, but this was not your typical rock climbing experience. Kit – Mikayi is one of nature’s mysteries, a rock formation which stands tall at 120 metres high could be described as nature’s balancing act. It’s a common miscalculation that Kisumu City, Kenya only […]

Travel Watchlist: The Spice Island – Zanzibar

Tanzania /

Tanzania is made of Tanganyika, the mainland, and Zanzibar, the island not too far off its Indian Ocean coast.

On the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, the lake was originally designed as a hydroelectric dam along the Zambezi River, servicing both countries with electricity.

Lake Malawi’s Hidden Treasure

Malawi / The editorial choices /

Once known as Lake Nyasa, Lake Malawi is one of the most stunning destinations around Malawi. On its shores lays Nkatha Bay, one of the lake’s main ports located 413 km from the capital, Lilongwe. It’s described as a “tropical paradise” but then again, so are many popular African destinations. What sets Nkatha Bay apart? […]

City Profile: Luxurious Luanda

angola / Destinations / Zoom on… /

Angola is not the most obvious destination when it comes to leisure travel because of its tumultuous history, the 27-year civil war, and the high cost of living. For many years, Luanda has made the list of the world’s most expensive cities, winning the title in the past.   Travel to Luanda was mostly reserved […]

Travel Watchlist: Banfora, Burkina Faso

Travel Watchlist: Banfora, Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso /

I’m going to come clean and admit that I had never thought of travelling to Burkina Faso before. Other than general knowledge about the West African country, I had no information about the attractions around Burkina Faso. Just like I was convinced that Burkina Faso should be on my travel wishlist, hopefully, this will convince […]

Shades of the Namib Desert

Namibia /

If a tree was to fall in the Namib Desert and no one is around to hear it would it make a sound? No, this is not going to be about philosophy or any scientific research, but it might help you consider a trip to the Namib Desert. The Namib Desert is one of the world’s oldest and largest […]
