...“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover...” (Mark Twain)
It has been another interesting year for us - we spent 3 months in Sudan, mainly for diving and after that made our way South again to do 2 big tours into areas where we haven´t been to yet - Zambia was one of those. Unfortunately we didn´t get everywhere we wanted to go because of lack of info.
So the plan for 2016 is easy: Crisscrossing Zambia and into this we sprinkle a little Mozambique and Malawi as well as a piece of Congo.
If ever you feel like you would join us on this expedition, just get in touch with us, we will certainly find a place in our car for you!
Just watch us and our plans on the facebook page
Another of our main interests are countries like Sudan and Zimbabwe, countries which are little visited and half forgotten, but which offer a rich diversity of culture, tribes, wildlife and fascinating nature. We like visiting those countries because one may still feel like an explorer! Through lots of photos on our facebook page, slideshow presentations and publications in magazines (British, South African, Czech, Slovakian and German) we would like to raise awareness for these countries and show people their beauties!
Across Africa Overland Adventure - we are still planning to do it again and have a new member in our vehicle family, a bigger offroad minibus that we slowly prepare. We would split the trip into 2 parts - from home to Kenya and then from Kenya till South Africa. On this second trip, we would like to visit places we love and of course also discover places we haven´t been to yet. Unfortunately, the political situation in Northern Africa is a bit unstable and so we have to wait still...
