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!

  1. Hi - you intrepid travellers. I am trying to follow the route; keep up the good work with the blog. Hope you managed to get a good mattress and duvet Margaret and that you are taking loads of pictures. All Christmassy here in London, but very wet. We are so envious and so full of admiration. Tell us more about what you see on the way between camps. Loads of love Elizabeth and Robbie
