“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.”– Saint Augustine Until I started working for Adventure Afrika a few months ago, I was seemingly reading the same page repeatedly. Having barely travelled South Africa, let alone crossed the border, many firsts were awaiting me and, so far, I have ticked many boxes on my bucket list. This month was no different – our trips were filled with exhilarating, once-in-a-lifetime experiences that would have been somewhat hard to believe if not captured on camera. First, we packed the long-awaited Suzuki Vitara Brezza and travelled to the Kruger National Park for a three-day camping stay at the popular Shingwedzi Rest camp in the northern part of the park. This was my first time camping in this national…

Lizaan Snyman Position: Journalist Favourite accessory: On longer travels, proper speakers is a must for me, as it just makes the travel experience feel shorter, easier and a whole lot more fun (BUT, make sure you and your travel partner have a similar taste in music!). Favourite holiday destination: I adore the Garden Route and specifically Mossel Bay. Besides the beautiful beaches, there are many other activities and adventures to keep young and old busy during your holiday. My favourite activity is the zipline at the famous Mossel Bay Point, which is the longest over-the-ocean zipline in the world. Bucket list destination: I have never travelled outside South Africa, so just about any adventure outside of our borders would be amazing. However, since I love adrenalin rushing adventures, I would love to travel to…

Isuzu MU-X out and about Down Under The 2021 MU-X has already been turning heads in Sydney, Australia. An avid fan of CarAdvice Australia submitted photos of this long-awaited SUV being filmed in the Sydney CBD, leading to speculation that the launch TV commercial was being shot. According to various sources, the new MU-X will sport some of the latest safety technologies, including a centre airbag between the front seats, radar cruise control, twin-camera autonomous emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and speed sign recognition, to mention a few.

It is said to develop 140 kW and 450 Nm and will probably be paired with a six-speed…
