Deževni dan ob obali drugega najglobljega jezera na svetu

Najin obisk Burundija se z uradniki, ki so zahtevali podkupnino in so nama pridobitev vize skušali računati dvojno ni začel najbolje. Izsiljevanje za denar na cesti je ena stvar, ko pa imaš opravka z uradnimi osebami pa sva vedno v precepu. Po eni strani bi mu rad ugodil in si tako zagotovil varen in enostaven vstop v državo, po drugi strani pa si, kot uradna oseba, ki izsiljuje, tudi sam v prekršku, če ga ‘podkupiš’ kakor zahteva. Na eni strani imaš uradnika s tvojim potnim listom v rokah in subtilno grožnjo na ustnicah, nad njegovo glavo pa kričeče opozorilo, da...

Country Nr 56 – Burundi – visiting Lake Tanganyika, the second deepest lake on Earth

Country 56/196: Burundi Destinations: Bujumbura, Tanganyika Lake Since 2015, Burundi has been experiencing some political issues and uprisings, which is why the country is currently mostly closed for tourists. Obtaining a tourist visa was quite a challenge and as it's pretty expensive, we had to apply for the transit visa, which limited our visit to two days. We visited the former capital city and the stunning Lake Tanganyika and we soon realized that Burundi is a lovely country. However, as the country doesn't have a lot of visitors the people were staring at us a lot, which made us feel...

Povratek k Viktorijinim slapovom

Pri Viktorijinih slapovih nama je bilo prejšnji teden tako ‘luštno’, da sva se morala vrniti. Jasno, konec koncev je mestece, ki je poimenovano po bližnjih slapovih tudi prestolnica Zimbabvijskega turizma. Sva pa tokrat torej obiskala Zimbabvijsko stran slapov, ki nudi pogled na 75% slapov, medtem ko se iz Zambije vidi le 25%, kar je še dodaten razlog, da sva v Zimbabveju izbrala to destinacijo. Navsezadnje si je treba največje slapove na svetu dodobra ogledati. ;) Obisk se je začel odlično. Imela sva to srečo, da so nama v znak podpore projektu ponudili prenočišče v čudovitem lodge-u, ki stoji na robu...

Country Nr 55 – Zimbabwe – conservation efforts, a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River, and the Zimbabwean side of the Victoria Falls

Country 55/196: Zimbabwe Destination: Victoria Falls As in Zambia, Victoria Falls are also the tourist capital of Zimbabwe. Naturally, we had to check it out. We just loved the falls so much in Zambia that we had to do it all over again. ;) And I'm glad we did, as we actually liked the Zimbabwean side of the falls even a bit more. It was a bit cleaner, a bit bigger, and a bit more 'touristy'-comfortable. Also, we visited the falls on a weekday, therefore it was significantly less crowded than the other day in Zambia. Besides, it's not just...

Popotovanje po deželi Bušmanov

Glede na to, da se ravno blizu Viktorijinih slapov stikajo skoraj štiri države (Zambija, Zimbabve, Bocvana in Namibija), sva ta del Afrike sklenila prepotovati s cestnimi prevoznimi sredstvi. Tako sva po dobri uri vožnje z avtobusom, taksijem in mini trajektom, ki v resnici bolj spominja na splav, iz Zambije prispela v Kasane – mesto, ki leži blizu stičišča teh držav. Najin obisk Bocvane se je začel skromno – brez elektrike. Ker omenjeni del Bocvane dobiva elektriko iz Zambije in ker se je pri njih podrl daljnovod, je vse mesto ostalo brez elektrike. Ne za nekaj minut ali ur, kot bi...

Country Nr 54 – Botswana – Chobe National Park safari and a meeting with the San ‘Bushmen’ people

Country 54/196: Botswana Destination: Kasane, Chobe National Park, Ghanzi district We started off our adventure in Botswana with an unexpected encounter with a family of elephants and hippos.

Presenečenj polna Zambija

O Zambiji sva slišala ogromno lepega, zato sva se obiska že nestrpno veselila. Destinacija: Livingstone in znameniti Viktorijini slapovi – itak! ;) Prva postaja: preizkušanje hrane. V spletni popotniški bibliji – TripAdvisorju, sva izbrskala informacijo o najboljši restavraciji v mestu, kjer po sprejemljivih cenah strežejo lokalno hrano. Cafe Zambezi. Slišalo se je obetavno, pa še blizu najinega preprostega lodge-a je. Kot se za sestradana gurmana spodobi sva bila vsa solzna od sreče že ko so postregli jedilnik. Za predjed sva naročila krožnik tradicionalnih dobrot. Prinesli so po dve piščančji perutnički v čili omaki, dve samozi (zvitek s piščančjim mesom), dva...

Country Nr 53 – Zambia – getting up close and personal with the country’s diverse wildlife on the Zambian side of the Victoria Falls

Country 53/196: Zambia Destinations: Livingstone, Victoria Falls We were very excited about visiting Zambia, as Zambia is home to the majestic Victoria Falls. But as it turns out, Zambia has so much more to offer than 'just' one of the largest waterfalls in the world. We loved the food, the friendly people, and the many unexpected wildlife encounters. Zambia quickly became one of our favorite countries in Africa. ♥ What to do and what to see in Zambia? Zambia is known for its many wonderful national parks, abundant wildlife, amazing outdoor activities, and of course the stunning Victoria Falls! Luckily,...

Lepote jugovzhodne Afrike

Iz otoške Afrike, ki je po svoje še bolj ‘na izi’ kot celinska (na kosilo v povprečju čakaš eno uro ;)) sva se preselila nazaj na kopno. Februarja sva raziskovala lepote jugovzhodne Afrike. Trajnostni Malavi Afrika je, naj vam povem, najdražja celina. Cene vizumov, stroški prevozov, tudi prenočišča. Predvsem tam, kjer ni konkurence. Tudi v trgovinah so cene skorajda primerljive našim (odvisno od kraja in trgovine, seveda), kar naju je še najbolj presenetilo. Tako moraš v krajih, kjer nimajo organiziranega javnega prevoza za prevoz iz letališča odšteti tudi več kot 20 €. Tako je bilo tudi ob prihodu v Malavi....
