Africamps At Oakhurst Wilderness

Joining The Glamping Lifestyle

Glamping The Garden Route If you haven’t heard the word “glamping” yet, be prepared to hear it a lot more often in the future, because it’s the latest thing when it comes to camping and outdoor adventure experiences, this is doing camping in style. So What is “Glamping” Anyway? According...

Kalahari Road Trip

Kgalagadi: The Green Kalahari

When I think about the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, (Kgalagadi means “Land Of The Thirst” in the Khoi language) which is pretty much as far north as South Africa extends, the first thing that springs to mind is a dry, almost lifeless desert. How wrong that assumption is...

Matjiesfontein Station

Matjiesfontein: Ghosts & War Stories

It was cold when we drove down the main street of Matjiesfontein, which seems as though it’s stuck firmly in the late 19th century, pulled up in the parking area in front of the Lord Milner Hotel and pushed open the huge front door, revealing a red staircase, right out of a Stephen King...

Views Wilderness Apartment

Get Away to Wilderness

This incredible little piece of paradise is one that I absolutely have to share  with my friends. It’s a very secure apartment, located literally 2 minutes away from the awesome Garden Route village of Wilderness, overlooking the Touw River lagoon where it enters the ocean...

Chobe Houseboat Sunset

Chobe River Luxury Houseboat

Drifting along the Chobe River in luxury houseboat is cruising like you won’t experience anywhere else. Forget the massive ocean-going liners of the Caribbean, the Med and Alaska, this is a far more intimate, and absolutely exclusive experience in one of the last unspoilt wilderness areas...

Garden Route Road Trip

Road Tripping the Garden Route Late summer, great weather in the Western Cape, holiday season is over and the crowds have gone back to work or school, there is no better time for a bit of road tripping through the Garden Route. Our aim was to avoid tarred routes as far as possible...

Fish River Canyon Namibia

Namibia: Swakopmund to Fish River Canyon

Apart from the roads within Etosha and then the long stretch from Khorixas to Henties Bay, much of the Northwards trip was on fair to good asphalt, from here it’s gravel all the way to the South African border at Vioolsdrift, apart that is, from the short stretch from Swakopmund to...

Etosha Nambia

Namibia: Cape Town to Etosha

The day of our long planned road trip through Namibia finally arrived. The trip would take us North from Cape Town to the border post at Vioolsdrift, through Windhoek to Tsumeb, then turning West through Etosha to Henties Bay on the coast. From Henties Bay we would turn South via...

Sossusvlei Sesriem

Sossusvlei Long Weekend

Sossusvlei is such an awesome place, each visit has revealed another side to that unique place on this earth. This was a dad and kids long weekend road trip, quality time on the road with not much else to do on the long drive from Cape Town but connect. Orange River First night on the...

Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls Zimbabwe

Victoria Falls is probably not reflective of the rest of Zimbabwe, but as one of the country’s bigger foreign currency earners it’s been pretty much left alone. So it’s a nice little town, things work, the shops are stocked up, & hotels and restaurants are all open...

Kubu Island

Botswana & Namibia Road Trip

Photos and report from our family road trip through Botswana and Namibia in October 2011, 6200 kilometers driven over 12 days, overnighting in 9 different locations, and well worth every minute. Our route took us through Gaborone with a one night stop at Kubu Island, one of the most...
