Loango… “Africa’s Last Eden”

Loango… “Africa’s Last Eden”

Gabon / Zoom on… /

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.

Hidden Gem: Mly Bousselham, Morocco

Hidden Gem: Mly Bousselham, Morocco

Morocco / The editorial choices /

It takes the right people to show you the beauty of a city. I never took this to heart until I experienced it a couple of months ago. I visited this city once with my family during the summer. Summer time here means beach and sun, fresh fish, crowds and chaos. I hate sitting on […]

Eat, Dance and Live Your Way Through Africa in 2019

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 […]

Daydreaming About Tanzania

Daydreaming About Tanzania

Tanzania / Zoom on… /

If you could travel to anywhere in the world, right away, right now, where would you go? As far as I am concerned, I would definitely be wearing my favorite swimming suit, rocking my natural hair and taking a walk in a wild beach in Tanzania. Here’s why!     The weather   December is the last […]

Give Rabat A Chance

Give Rabat A Chance

Morocco /

It is often said that outsiders know your hometown better than you. I’m pretty sure I know my hometown pretty well-ish though. Rabat is the administrative capital of Morocco, and tends to get empty around 10 in the evening. Many think it’s boring city but don’t judge a book by its cover.   What to See […]

Lake or Dam… ? Let’s Go to Kariba!

The editorial choices / Zambia / Zimbabwe /

The largest man-made lake and reservoir and the 4th largest lake in Africa, Lake Kariba has given us a lot to talk about. 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. It is still functional presently and doubles as […]

Brush up on your Arabic and follow us to Sudan!

Brush up on your Arabic and follow us to Sudan!

Sudan /

Have you ever read a story and wondered what it would be like visiting all the places it mentioned? I surely did. I fantasized about Sudan  thanks to “Season of Migration to the North” by Tayeb Salih.   English is spoken in most regions, but learning some Arabic would surely come handy. Despite its politically charged atmosphere, Sudan […]

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? […]
