Peter uncovers Madagascar on a FAM trip! 1

This is the fourth largest island in the world (after Greenland, Papua New Guinea and Borneo for those quiz fans amongst us) and truly is a unique destination. While it is only 250 miles from the coast of Africa but might as well be ten times that distance if you are looking for comparisons.

uncovers Madagascar has some of the highest endemicity on the planet with nearly 80% of its flora and fauna being endemic. There are 30 species of lemurs that are only found on the island and another 100 mammals that are endemic to Madagascar.

Monica discovers Namibia!

Monica discovers Namibia! 2

We arrived in Namibia on a scorching hot day at Hosea Kutako Airport, Windhoek. I had been unsure of what to expect as I knew very little about Namibia, other than it is famed for its red sand dunes… but I was soon to learn that Namibia has so much more to offer then the dunes!


On arrival we were met by our guide and driver who took us on a very brief tour of Windhoek…We then began our long trek down south to the Kalahari region – after this long drive, it was such a relief to arrive at this Bagatelle Kalahari Ranch ‘oasis’ where we were greeted with ice cold beverages! Nothing better then an ice cold drink after a long hot drive!

The Heights of Kilimanjaro! 4

A Jenman African Safaris’ employee Debbie braved the heights of Mount Kilimanjaro, situated in the Kilimanjaro National Park in Tanzania. Mount Kilimanjaro, a now-dormant volcano, rises to 5895 metres and is both the highest point in Africa and one of the highest mountains in the world.


The climb takes six days and the routes can vary, according to your preference. Debbie says that one should be careful which route one chooses, as each has its own distinct advantages and disadvantages.

Exploring Botswana with Janina!

Exploring Botswana with Janina! 5

When I arrived at the small airport of Livingstone I could immediately feel the change of climate. The air was hot and humid and I felt like I had stepped into another world! From the airport, I was transferred to the Zambezi Waterfront Lodge, which is only a few km’s away. The very next morning we departed from the Zambezi Waterfront at 9am on the dot – we quickly left Livingstone behind us and were off to Botswana Wildlife Breakaway Adventure!
