After Covid put her travel plans on hold, Connie Kakalia finally took her dream vacation in Southern Africa in June with her husband, Dave Gregson. Connie's home is in Kauai, Hawaii, and she is known for her adventurous spirit. As a seasoned globetrotter, Connie tasted Africa when she experienced the Serengetti a few years ago. Naturally, she expected a similar experience this time around. After all, Africa is Africa, right? Well, she couldn't have been more wrong. She shares her thoughts on her life-changing 21-day luxury Namibia, Botswana, and

An African proverb says, 'To get lost is to learn the way'. Getting lost is simply a different way of going on an adventure. When you're lost, it is an opportunity to learn how to find yourself and listen to your thoughts, your inner being, and other people. It's a journey to self-discovery. I learned this at a very young age and have made it my life's work to help others embrace the adventure that comes with exploring the world

The tourism industry is one that is vital to a country such as South Africa, where low productivity and economic issues are often offset by the income it generates. Spectacular beaches, scenic routes, winelands and of course the world’s best wildlife preservation areas, all contribute to a healthy tourism industry. There is however, if one will excuse the pun, a bit of a ‘black cloud’ that hangs over tourism and its contribution to ecological issues in the country. Responsible research shows that it is in fact a global issue. Tourism generates 10% of the world's GDP, one

The Wildlife and Birdlife of Akagera The game drive from the gate to Magashi takes 45 – 120 minutes, depending on wildlife sightings and photo opportunities and is part of the splendour of a stay there.   Magashi is situated in the only area where you can combine a bucket list gorilla trek in the legendary Virunga Mountains with a sublime savannah safari experience!   See It In Style This is yet another of the ever growing number of

It is a beautiful description of a land that is both serenely unspoiled and wild but vibrant, sparse and dry, but tempered with greenbelts that play host to a myriad of wildlife. Affectionately known as “The Jewel of the Desert,’ Namibia is a hauntingly beautiful country. Its German influence is evident throughout and this truly is one of the world’s natural treasures. There is such a vast range of things to do there that we felt we should try to nail it down to just the premier points of interest for our clients – and so

Bordering South Africa and Zimbabwe, Mozambique in Africa has had a chequered and somewhat tumultuous past, particularly from a political point of view. It is now very much recovered however and once again seen as a fabulous international tourist destination, particularly with its great beaches and coastal resorts. What is not so well known is that it plays host to a myriad of wildlife and a magnificent game reserve known as Gorongosa National Park. Return To Eden Once known as the ‘Eden of Africa,’ Gorongosa National Park is one of the finest in Africa and finally overcoming the ravages

So, you’ve been on safari have you? You say you’ve seen the ‘Big Five,’ so named because they are supposed to be the hardest wild animals in Africa to spot? I think not! Without a doubt, one of the most magnificent animals living in Africa’s wilds is to be found in the hills of primarily Uganda and Rwanda. The Silverback Gorilla. This is a different experience altogether. This is a tracking or ‘Trekking’ experience (as Africans prefer to call it) – this is not a luxury safari or guided tour, this is well supervised and

Mozambique, to many, is just a little-known place somewhere in Africa, but it used to be a haven of beach activity, a vacation resort of note for the surrounding territories of Zimbabwe and South Africa, the place to go for exquisite prawns and other Portuguese fare. Sadly, this was prior to the turn of the century and to it becoming a war torn political tug of war that saw the tourist industry petty much die for a period of time. But Mozambique is back! So much so in fact, that preferred African safari and guided tour
