Welcome to our Africa blog

We hope all our families and friends will log in from time to time to see how we're getting on - and just to touch base. We all know we shall miss everyone and this is one of the ways we hope to keep in touch. And, of course, we shall be logging on to Skype and emailing whenever we get the chance. This is a massive adventure for us all with a shed load of planning , but once you've fallen for Africa you just have to see more. So here we go!

Camp challenge

A move to Marrungulo, also known as The Coconut Coast, has brought us to a lovely campsite right still right next to the Indian Ocean.
Setting up camp only got tricky when a coconut missed Chris's head by about a metre. (He says it was 10 cm but we don't believe him). Anyhow, upshot was a shift of vehicles to avoid serious clobbering from above during the night.
Lesson. Don't park under a coconut palm.
