Africa | Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa

Words & Photography: Aline Lange

From October to November 2015 I spent 4 weeks exploring Namibia, Botswana, Zambia & South Africa. My favourite aspect was simple seeing animals freely in their habitat! I don’t think I ever want to go to a zoo again! Elephants walk from waterhole to waterhole, lions rest in the shade, springboks everywhere. I just loved it! I traveled with a group from Germany (Marco Polo Young Line). Most nights we camped with our own tents.

We arrived at a camping ground, helped each other building up tents, the next morning the same procedure.
The sites were always simple but beautiful. In the middle of nowhere, always with a cool pool nearby and lots of wine at night after a beautifully cooked dinner by our own cook!
 
Best things on the menu is definitely meat if you’re a meat lover – the variety is huge and when it’s freshly grilled it’ss even better. Also veggies (corn) are super yummy! I wouldn’t say that there’s a typical meal. For me personally it was definitely the BBQs at night! If you like beer, there’s a Namibian brewed one (I can’t remember the name!), and as for wine – try everything. The variety is big! If you can’t cool the wine traveling, just take some red!
I didn’t decide the places I visited, as I followed a route chosen by Marco Polo. I have travelled with them before and really enjoyed the organisation and I trust them. Everything was perfect – our guide, cook and driver were awesome and everything was cared for. If you’re single it’s a good choice to travel this way. Especially if you’re a girl who doesn’t want to travel certain countries by yourself, like myself.

 About Aline

I am in love with life and especially with travelling! Being self employed as a photographer allows me to go anytime anywhere.. well, If my accounts says ‘Yes’ as well! My favourite place is Australia as I have lived here before, I call it my second home. Otherwise just anywhere in the world where I feel good! I love eating good food – I am a sushi addict – and enjoying a good glass of wine.
