Land of the baobabs


lik-sunset-baobab.jpg We are in the land of the baobabs.

Following our Asian adventure, an all-too brief foray into the Middle East and quick European pit-stop to indulge in some cheese, we have finally made it to Africa.

All we have so far is a plane ticket that flies us into Johannesburg and out of Nairobi, and the vague intention to head north by whatever means we can. Apparently, if you were to draw a line between these two cities, you would need to cover a distance of 2923km. Of course, travelling overland, we shall be taking a much more… how you say – “scenic route”!

So, with just under two months to cover this sizable territory, it looks like a bit of an African road trip will be in order.
