Lion's Head

I'm always getting harassed to climb up Lion's Head whenever I'm in Cape Town and the task always seems so daunting. I've never regretted it though. It's an awesome hike that looks more difficult than it really is. And, while you might complain about the elevation gain in the first half of the hike, all...

Okavango Delta

If you're looking for a wildlife and nature experience in Africa, this is not to be missed! The government of Botswana has made efforts to keep the Delta relatively exclusive. This means that most of the lodges, while beautiful, are pricey. For a budget option, you can get really close to nature and...

Lake Nakuru National Park

Nakuru often gets overlooked because it's so close to the city and it's so small. I love this park and almost always have good luck with the wildlife. No other park I've been to in Kenya has shown me so many leopards or rhino. I'm also really into taking photos and the ones from here usually turn out great -...

Meserani Snake Park

It's hard to describe Snake Park and do it justice. Ma and BJ are the best. The snakes are so cool and I never tire of going back to check them out. The bar really is amazing. It's an eclectic monument to travelers past and preset - the best part being the wall plastered with photos of overland trucks half...

Easy Rider Wine Tours

I love wine and this tour makes drinking it that much more fun. The whole thing is a great value. The guides are fun yet well informed. You won't believe the lunch you get! The wine farms are great - usually Boschendal, Simonsig, Fairview, and Deu Donne. I can't say enough about the cheese...

Gansbaai

There are few places in the world where you can experience the thrill of being in the water with Great White sharks. I don't think that there is anywhere in the world where you can do it with as experienced crew, as high a chance of success of seeing sharks, and for as little money than you can in South...

Mgahinga Gorilla National Park

I've gone gorilla trekking twice - once here and once in Rwanda. Both were among the most amazing experiences of my life. The guides at both parks were beyond excellent and so dedicated. The biggest bonus at Mgahinga is the trails. They're very well maintained and all the clients that I have sent in...

South Luangwa National Park

South Luangwa is an incredible and relatively unknown gem. The wildlife is on par or perhaps even better than other game parks such as the Masai Mara in Kenya or Etosha in Namibia. There is a high concentration of big cats in the park and a fantastic diversity of other animals: over 100 different mammal...
