Hi all,

I'm looking at honeymoon options and this is our holy-crap-not-sure-we-can-afford-this-but-what-could-possibly-be-more-amazing option. So, we are putting together a sample itinerary.

KENYA:
We are looking for the quintessential safari experience, with a little bit of honeymoon-type luxury...

Kichwa Tembo (andBeyond)-- In the Mara, our top choice right now is Kichwa because it is so wonderfully priced for the quality of stay, but our question is-- is it too big?! We do not want to go…

I currently have 3 possible routes, and was hoping someone could advise on road conditions and rough ideas of duration. I keep reading roads were being resurfaced, but can't seem to find recent information. Below are my possible routes:

  • Sani Pass > Katse > Pitseng >Teyateyaneng
  • Sani Pass > Thaba-Tseka
  • Qachas Nek > Semonkong

Are any of these possible in a day with a 4x4?

Thanks.

Keren, 90km from Asmara:
Yohannes Hotel, near the central Roundabout. Nakfa 300 and up. It’s next to Albergo Sicilia but much better maintained.
In Keren I stayed for 2 nights and could have stayed longer because of the relaxed atmosphere of the town and its people.
Note: In Keren you have to walk yourself to the police station for registration. The hotel will give you a little slip, you walk to the police office and register (including how many years you spent in school, lol) and they give you…

General:
Egypt was never cheaper than now! A real problem for the local population and the economy it’s good for travellers coming from one of the “hard-currency” countries.
People are also very friendly (in my opinion friendlier than on my first visit some 10 years ago), even the taxi drivers (I can’t believe I ever say this about taxi drivers). If you move from the city’s outskirts towards the city centre in the morning, get yourself the Uber App. About half the driver’s speak good English…

Hello!
I am planning to arrive from Durban by plane to Nelspruit in mid October. Then I am looking for a 3-4 days Safari tour to Kruger Park departing from Nelspruit. Do you have any suggestions / recommendations for tour and tour operators out of Nelspruit? Or where I can find these in the internet?
I would appreciate your ideas very much & thanks a lot!
Best regards, Pascal

Just booked my flights to Morocco in September for 18 days. Arriving in Casablanca and departing from Marrakesh.
Some of my must sees are Chefchaouen, Moulay idriss, Volubillis, a camel trek in the desert. I'm considering renting a car but honestly I'm a little nervous driving it all on my own.So if I were to do some areas by public transport and others with a car which would you suggest? I arrive in Casablanca on a sunday afternoon so will probably spend Monday exploring and head out on…
