A Journey’s Highlights

Sossusvlei, Namibia

This surreal desert landscape is sublime and is likely to be one of my first i revisit. Bring a tent and stay for a week!

Cape Peninsula, South Africa

The end of the African continent boasts beautiful National Parklands boasting huge biodiversity if flora second to none.

Gansbaii, South Africa

The place to share the ocean with Great White sharks. To view these adept killers is an amazing experience

Ilha de Mocambique, Mozambique

A genuine working town and a sublime historical feast showing Portuguese colonial architecture at its finest.

Ibo Island, Mozambique

A surreal island – just like a film set!

Cape Maclear, Malawi

A piece of paradise on Lake Malawi.

Vwaza, Malawi

Little visited and cheap as chips, watch elephants come to bathe at sunset.

Ngorogoro Crater, Tanzania

If you are going to do any one safari in Africa, it’s hard to beat the diversity found here.

Parc National des Volcan

Viewing the mountain gorillas in their natural habitat was the most exhilarating moment of the trip. Damn the expense and see for yourself.

Harar, Ethiopia

Like no place on Earth. Don’t miss the old market and the Hyena men.

Shendi, Sudan

Imagine having over 100 pyramids all to yourself.

Petra, Jordan

Not surprisingly one of the modern Wonders of the World. Spend a few days and check out the myriad paths.
