I'm travelling to Uganda soon and was wandering what is the best way to get from Fort Portal to the Murchison falls NP?
Everywhere I searched it seems the recommendation is to go back to Kampala and then to Murchison Falls, but I'm hoping the roads or something have changed since, and would rather go straight from A to B...
Does anyone have a recommendation?
Hi! I'm planing to go to Dakhla for a kitesurf trip and would like to rent a car once i get there. Is that possible or is it better to rent a car online? Any sugestion?
What about cheap acommodation?
We are going to Morocco in 2 days and want to rent a car for the trip from Fes to Marakech through Merzouga, Todra and Dades Valley, maybe with a stop in the mountains or anywhere interesting. We are a couple and would like to share a car with some travellers, but we only have 5-6 days for this route. Will leave Fes Sunday 28 August. Anyone wants to join us?
We're supposed to be traveling in Ethiopia, September/October timeframe. I've seen the news about protests and govt crackdowns, including blocking Facebook/Internet. Can somebody who's there fill me in on the vibe? We're supposed to be traveling from Addis and possibly traveling around Jinka, Omirate, Arba Minch, Awassa, and Danakil. If things are sketchy we might postpone. Thanks everyone.
Hi friends :-)
Does anybody know when are the public days of this year's reed dance celebrations? It's kind of hard to find reliable information online...is it Sunday/Monday (28./29.08.) like every year despite the SADC summit??
I'd be happy about any piece of advice!!
I'm planning a road trip to the RN7 from Morondava starting from the middle to end of October. I'd like to visit Isalo, Ranomafana, Andringitra and Zombitse-Vohibasia National Parks. Would two weeks be enough to do this and are there any other parks worth visiting? At the moment I'm planning to end in Tana rather than going back to Morondava, is this a good idea? I anyone's got recommended hotels around the parks I'd like to hear them.
I have read post on visa here, it looks rather good, so provided that you have a hotel reservation -
is there any reason to doubt that you will be granted a tourist visa?
Thanks in advance
