Malawi: Driving across the Warm Heart of Africa

Safari Njema! The adventure begins across Africa’s warm heart, in an old, cheaply rented yet sturdy looking Toyota. Conservation success stories, prime (and very lucky) wildlife sightings….an exciting first three days across the country down in the Majete Game Reserve.

Climbing Kilimanjaro

I've been wanting to write about my experience for some time now (hard to think it's already been 5 months!) To share it of course, but also for myself. I realised that every time I told the story, I relived it fully. So I thought writing it down must be on a whole other level of re-immersion. And… reading multiple blogs and recounts of other people’s treks helped a lot for the preparation and anticipation. So if my advice/story can be of any help, then why not?

Here, you’ll find a more or less detailed account of my climb (I’ve tried to include as much as I could…this definitely doesn’t do the actual version justice of course, but nothing ever will). 

The following post is dedicated to Advice on Climbing Kilimanjaro.
