it’s a rite of passage

(Catherine Hofmeyr, Revel Fox) Justin Fox The Kruger National Park is a part of the South African psyche. It’s a space that defines our country – a national treasure. Established in 1898 to protect the wildlife of the Lowveld, today Kruger is a world leader in advanced environmental management. Occupying two climactic zones and 16 distinct eco-zones, the park is home to an unrivalled abundance of life forms: 336 tree species, 49 fish, 34 amphibians, 114 reptiles, 507 birds and 147 mammals.The size of Belgium, it’s a place in which to lose yourself, driving for days through an African Eden. This is the realm of baobabs, leadwoods and fever trees; a land patrolled by the Big Five, the Little Five (buffalo weaver, elephant shrew, leopard tortoise, ant lion and…

Keri Harvey Mozambique, page 88 For Keri, the more remote and off the radar she can be, the better. Add heat, dust and some wildlife and it’s her nirvana – especially when there’s also pioneering conservation work happening. Zinave National Park in Mozambique perfectly fits the bill as an inspiring place, where Africa is getting it right. Keri’s nickname is ‘Double Rugged’, even though she’s usually in a skirt and sandals. Allison Foat Netherlands, page 96 Before this trip, ballerina-turned-travel writer Allison Foat had never heard of Friesland or its Eleven Cities and Fountains, and the quirky province in northern Holland turned out to be a revelation. After boating through canals in France and Italy, Allison has become a huge fan of this mode of slow travel. Drifting…

the highwayman’s safari

(Gallo Images/Getty Images) Ben Trovato When I was younger my mother would say to me, ‘Son, you are on the road to hell.’ I would give a carefree laugh, nick another fifty from her bag and head out in search of whatever would help get me to manhood the quickest.I have since discovered that hell is not a destination. It is, in fact, a road. Specifically, the road from Nairobi to Mombasa.I set off late, thinking the road might be less busy at night. Climbing into my rented Subaru, I inched my way to the outskirts of Nairobi, reclined the seat a few notches, opened a cold Tusker with my teeth and floored it. Dusk was falling. In a flash, so was I. Into a pothole the size of…

quantum travels in vietnam

The travel bug bit at a most inopportune time, but just before the school holidays, and I realised that I desperately needed to visit Vietnam. It was only as I stood before the curtains in my Hanoi hotel room having flown across three times zones, picking up an eye infection and breaking my perfume bottle on the bathroom floor, that I wondered if I’d forced a path where none was meant to be. In the end, it turned out to be one of the best family holidays.My children loved the trip as it was completely different from anything they had previously experienced. In the Old Quarter of Hanoi they watched a traditional water puppet theatre at night, and pedalled back to our hotel on cyclos, passing a four-kilometre mosaic…
