Overlanding through Africa

Meet Patrick and Chloe – two new bloggers to join the Africa Geographic online community!

This soon-to-be-wed couple departed in June 2013 to follow their dream of overlanding through Africa. They have so far travelled 9802 kilometres through Namibia and Botswana and are heading towards Ethiopia.

See below for a montage of pics of their journey so far, and stay tuned for further posts as they continue their travels up north!


And the journey begins. Leaving Jo’burg.

    Hmm so nostalgic, thank you! During 2001/2002 we completed a 10 month overland trip, traversing 13 countries in southern and eastern Africa including Sudan, and back home to Johannesburg. Best 10 months of my life… bush camping under glorious star light African skies whilst enjoying the calls of wild animals or beating drums of locals celebrating life!! Such simple yet profound pleasures to nurture the soul. Other than a highly successful and memorable trip, our biggest accomplishment was not paying a single bribe. Yip, not even $1 was shelled out. Yes, there were many blatant requests, to which we pleaded poverty or pretended not to understand. Whats more, nothing was lost or stolen from us or the vehicle during the entire trip. Wishing you both an equally blessed journey, with a plethora of memories and exciting stories to share. Happy adventures, and Bon voyage!
