Jono and Wendy's Most Excellent African Adventure

This is all about our African adventure as we make our way around the southern African countries of South Africa, Mozambique, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Tanzania!

We hope to update the website over the next 6 months with our blog and photos so that you can share in our (highly anticipated) fun and (hopefully not so many) frustrations!

I am quite new to this sort of 'free-spirited' travelling, but I'm embracing it with both hands!  I'm originally from Zimbabwe and  still love going back to my 'roots'.  I've never been to Zambia, Mozambique, Botswana or Tanzania, so it will be an amazing experiance for me. I'm really look  forward to travelling with Wendy, and showing her what we Africans are made of. This is definitely going to be an experiance of a life time!

I'd like to thank my parents so much for all their advice, support and contacts! I'd also like to thank all my friends and family that have helped me and encouraged me during all the planning. I'd especially like to thank Wendy for all she has done to make this possible too!

I'm a travel junkie at heart and despite the fact that I am lucky enough to travel the world in my job, I felt the need to travel more without the benefits of five-star hotels and expenses!   I am really looking forward to this trip as Africa is one continent I've always wanted to do but never had the opportunity to do, so this is my adventure of a lifetime!  Plus it's not every day you get the chance to travel for 6 months with one of your best friends who just happens to be a Zimboi and rather handily has a few friends and family dotted around the continent! Result!

This is my Oscar winning podium moment so please indulge me - I would like to thank my family and friends for being so supportive and putting up with my constant "Eek! Only x number of sleeps to go now!" I need to give a massive thanks to my bosses at work for letting me swan off for 6 months and then let me float back into work!


African photos will be uploaded soon!  Well, as soon as we can find an internet cafe which will let us upload more than 4 photos in one hour...
In the meantime, the below Flickr accounts show other random photos!
