Explore. Dream. Discover.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things 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.

  1. Hi Dorette
    We will be following your journey with interest, we leave Cape Town on 1 July 2015 for a 4 month sojourn into the same countries as you. It will be our third “into Afrika” trip and can barely wait!!!

    When do you leave? Have you left already? Where the latest posts?

    See you on the highways of Africa


    • Hi Ross

      Ran into some problems with my laptop’s battery, plus had no access to technology, as in cellphone networks. We have wifi now so I should be able to update soon!

      Currently in Rosh Pina in a guest house, luxury!

      See you around!


      • Ah ok good.
        I do understand about the “technology thang!” I did a blog on our first trip but the challenges of internet and the limited bandwidth caused me to abandon the idea on the second and third … I simply put together a word document and sent it to a couple of “administrators” who then sent onto a bunch of interested parties … who resent and resent … when I missed a days report I would be inundated with “where is day 76 … please!!” from 100’s of people I didnt even know.
        Can you post your route as you see it now … I know things will change…

        Enjoy the luxury


        • Yep, I have a month to do! Will send a word doc to a friend once done and she will edit and post.

          We only plan a few days ahead. So far from here it will be Fish River Canyon, Luderitz, Sossus Vlei. That’s all we know now. Will roughly head north, but will visit Swakop and Walvis for sure.

          Keep us updated on your trip as well! Will you travel with wife and kids?
