Road Trip through Southern Africa

The only traveling I’ve done in the last two weeks has been moving from my brother’s house in Windham to my own apartment in Freeport. But, in that same time, I’ve been planning what I think will be my final trip of this almost year-long adventure – a trip to southern Africa.

I didn’t think this trip was actually going to happen, but the stars aligned and when I got a notification that flight prices dropped, Chris and I decided to just book it. We’ll be flying into Johannesburg, South Africa, picking up our Land Rover Defender (equipped with camping equipment) and setting off on our journey on March 14th (returning April 4th).


Our first stop was travel medicine. Most travel medicine places were booking out past the day we were leaving. After calling around to a number of places, I finally found someone who could get us in. I’ve started the typhoid and malaria regimen to be on the safe side, and because we aren’t traveling to any yellow fever areas (though we’re coming close), we didn’t have to get that vaccination.

Our plans are fluid at this time, but we hope to visit Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and of course, South Africa. We’ll explore the deserts, wildlife areas, Victoria Falls, and I’ll hopefully get to go scuba diving (as long as I don’t get another nasty head cold)!

Our want-to-see list includes:

  • Kgalagadi Tranfrontier Park

    Victoria Falls
  • Okavango Delta
  • Chobe National Park
  • Makgadikgadi Pans National Park
  • Victoria Falls
  • Lake Kariba
  • Chimanimani District
  • Nyanga National Park
  • Hwange National Park
  • Blyde River Canyon
  • Kruger National Park
  • Tofo Beach

    The Panoramic Route/Blyde River Canyon
  • Sossusvlei
  • Skeleton Coast
  • Etosha National Park

Internet will likely be limited, but I will try to share as much as possible!
