A fantastic way to get close to the nature! We spent two nights paddling the river, and in night time we slept on a desert beach. Watching the sunset over the river. Cooking dinner on a campfire while our guide was telling us tales about the different stars and constellations. Sitting in the tent and listening to lions roaring in the distance. Amazing, amazing, amazing. Words can't explain the experience (or the size of the blisters in my hand after).
In Africa I attended a guided safari trip through Drifters. The trip took me through South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi and Mozambique and lasted for 24 days. Most of the time we slept in tent, but sometimes we slept under the stars, and on a few occasions we had a real bed to sleep in. The trip was amazing, and I would recommend everyone to spend some time in Africa!
Sleeping in a tent in the middle of nowhere was a really cool experience. In night time we could hear lions roaring at each other, and we could spot big elephant prints right outside our tent.
Our guide drove us around in a big truck, and some days we spent the whole day driving. The roads were terrible, and sometimes we actually had to drive next to the road because there were holes in the road at the same size as our truck... But there was so much to see from the road, and it actually felt like you were on a constant safari!
Three weeks with almost no internet connection, and not to many opportunities to charge you phone battery. I absolutely loved it. It's so much easier to appreciate whats around you when you not constantly are updating Facebook.
