    Mozambique

    Our three day trip to Mozambique was very relaxing, even though it was short. The road trip there from Johannesburg took a while and there are a couple things you should be prepared for if you’re going to take a trip like this. When preparing for this kind of trip, pack everything you might need. Bring plenty of drinks and food, not just as snacks but also to eat at your destination. Plan your route well, along with possible places to stop for food. You should also plan the route so that you know what kind of a road you will be driving on, whether it’s a highway or dirt…

    Zimbabwe

    In 2012 on my trip to South Africa, we decided to explore a little more, packed our bags and flew to Zambia and crossed over to Zimbabwe to see the Victoria Falls. This crazy short trip, only two days, a little north of South Africa was definitely worth it! We stayed at the Lokuthula Lodge, which has one main building, but more importantly, there are little huts, which is what we stayed in. Heads up, these huts aren’t closed all the way, they have a wall that is open, that you can close just with a flap door. So make sure you close the mosquito net around your bed, so that…

    South Africa Trips

    South Africa is one of my favorite places I have traveled to! That is probably why I have been there six times. Although, that also has to do with the fact that I had family living there. With each visit I saw something new or even went to a new country! Here is what I did each time I was there: First trip February 2010, my first trip to South Africa.  It was amazing and beautiful! We saw so many things in that one short week. We stayed in Johannesburg which became a headquarters of sorts, but we also went to the Kruger National Park  and Cape Town. 6 years…

    South Africa: Sixth and last trip

    The last time I went to South Africa was, yet again, a more relaxing trip. We didn’t feel like we needed to go to new countries or cities, we just needed to relax and warm up, especially in the midst of the worst, record-breaking winter in Boston. This trip we focused on good food and some local museums, but mostly food. We went to some great restaurants and we even went to a bar one night. I definitely did not mind spending my last trip to Johannesburg soaking up the sun, drinking wine and eating delicious food!   Since we were in Africa, we did go on a shorter safari to…

    South Africa Part 5

    On my fifth trip to South Africa, I spent barely any time in Johannesburg and in South Africa in general. Mostly we were in Mozambique, again the details of which will come later! We spent a large portion of the week in the car, but the three days in Mozambique were so worth it! We were in the middle of nowhere and that was perfect. For three days we were separated from the world, completely off the grid. It was the best way to de-stress from school and work. It reminded me how great it is to get away from everything sometimes. If you are renting a car, which you…
