WELCOME TO LANDROVINGAFRICA!

With age comes “do you remember”?  With “do you remember” comes memories. Camping memories. Africa traveling memories.

As blazing fires turns camping firewood into ashes, so does the fire of knowledge burn to ashes all reactions to material activities. Memories are all that is left behind.

May we never stop gathering firewood to serve as memories for those “do you remember” camping and traveling days.

The purpose of this blog is to share our experiences traveling into Africa.  Various topics such as  planning, what to pack, border crossings, what to expect, managing your traveling expectations and much – MUCH more.

In the weeks to come you will hear a lot about him as he will take us on a tour through Namibia from 15 December 2018 to 3 January 2019. ... See MoreSee Less
