JZ's South African Journey: Madagascar, Namibia, Botswana & Mozambique 2012

Yes, it's time for another trip and once again I am heading to Africa...but with new countries and new experiences and I want to take YOU along for the adventures!!

First up is Madagascar to hike the forest for their indigenous lemurs and spend time in the rural Highlands spending time with the locals and the healers of the village. Next is Namibia where the spectacular sand dunes of Sossusvlei are situated within the Namib Desert, the oldest desert in the world and participating in hot air ballooning over the dessert and quad biking the dunes. I will also be staying at a wildlife sanctuary rehabilitating lions, cheetahs, and leopards and spending time with the local bushman. Next on the list is Botswana participating in safaris at one of the most remote camps in the Okavango Delta as well as visiting the Kalahari Desert for more safaris and spending time learning the traditions of the Sans Bushman and visiting their villages. Last on the list is Mozambique to visit the "Pearl of the Indian Ocean" and snorkel he archipelago’s coral reefs and crystal waters, visit the orphanage and simply relax!!

I may be in very remote areas with little access to power and internet service but I am sure to catch up on some of my 18 flight legs. So, come on, let's explore together.
