Circuit breaks

At Travel Africa, we’ve long been fans of the slow safari, and it seems that more and more of us want to focus our future trips on taking time to relax, reconnect with nature and give ourselves a well-earned mental and physical break. Inevitably, this will mean including fewer places in our itineraries, minimising internal travel and allocating more days in each location.

Travel Africa 97

July-September 2022

Tanzania is probably the greatest all-round wildlife destination in Africa — arguably the world. But with such an appealing variety of attractions, the choice of where to go can be overwhelming. Perhaps Mike Unwin’s 21-page tour of the country will help you to plan your next adventure? In this issue we also take safari-lovers to Liuwa Plain in Zambia, Akagera in Rwanda, Lake Kariba in Zimbabwe, Khwai in Botswana and Liwonde in Malawi, while Craig S Harrison returns to Uganda 50 years after his last visit, to see how it’s changed. We also stroll around Windhoek, hike the high plateaus of Mt Kenya, explore the creative vibe of South Africa and witness the release of a rescued pangolin. There’s plenty to inspire your future travels, no matter your interests.

The L word

“Hold on. I think I saw… Was that some kind of… Can you go back a second?” It’s around 7.45am on Friday 18 August, 1989. The words, or something similar, are my mother’s. They herald a moment that I have been trying to imagine for much of my life. Forget space travel or scoring the …
