The idea to end 2020 on a good note came to me in July of 2020. I knew a few of my friends would like to accompany me in anything I could think of. The first two friends that came to mind were Daniel from Robertson and the other was a college friend of mine that immigrated to Canada 3 years ago (Dirk). I knew Dirk would like to visit South Africa, but we did not know if the border regulations because of Covid 19, would allow him to enter South Africa. None the less, I made a booking in

Towards the end of March 2020 we heard the surprising news about Covid-19 but didn’t actually realise the extent of the impact on Tourism and the local communities like Impalila Island.

I have been exploring the African continent for well over two years now, and have spent an immense amount of time pondering the major differences between the Western World and the rural Africa I’ve been immersed in. There are a host of obvious differences of course – roads, electricity and running water can be very spotty, military personnel armed to the teeth are an everyday sight, and the weather can be counted on to be extremely hot and humid, except when torrential downpours last months and rainfall is measured in centimetres instead of millimetres.

Let me tell you a little something about overlanders. They are heavy-duty 4×4’ers that don’t like to camp in crowded or populated areas. Overlanders enjoy travelling over mountains and through rivers to find a new piece of uncharted land in which to set up camp and be free and isolated from the world around them. They use GPS to pinpoint actual locations and old school maps to get where they’re going. When they camp, they like to camp wild! I mean… no electric fences, no rangers, and often no ablutions. Just them, the stars and their healthy obsession for being

South Africa has it all. Blue flag beaches, Big Five game reserves, unique eco-systems, protected marine areas, majestic mountain ranges and top dive sites.
