• Hey guys!

    So here are some fresh news. I have been in France since early May doing some research consulting work.

    But now the call of the bush is way to strong and I'm heading back to Africa for a month long road trip! It'll start in SA where Kenji has been patiently waiting for me since I left. We'll be heading to Northern Cape and explore Augrabies falls, Namaqua and Richtersveld National Parks. We'll then cross the border to Namibia and have fun in the desert and mountains in the South of the country for another 2 weeks.

    By then it'll be time to head back to France for the winter. But stay tuned, as the current plan is to fly back to Namibia end of February, for good this time!

    More later!

    Time for a road trip!

  • Launching ShumbAfrica Safaris!!!

    I have been thinking about this for a while now...

    I know Africa quite well and I love organising road trips to discover new places. Why not organise totally customised tours for other people??

    Well, it seemed like a good idea so I decided to launch my own travel consultancy and ShumbAfrica Safaris was born!!!

    So if you or your friends and family are dreaming about discovering Africa but don't want to go through the usual channels of organised tours and travel agencies, drop me an email! 

    I will designed itineraries specifically for you, based on your interests and experience. 

    No 5 stars hotels or lodges with me. Everyone night, you will camp under a sky with millions of stars and enjoy the Southern Cross and the Milky  Way like never before! You will be as close to the Nature as possible and discover places in a way few people do. And of course, you should have more than enough of opportunities to practise your photographic skills!

     

    And if you are interested, just drop me an email at shumbafrica.safaris@gmail.com 

     

    I am looking forward to hear from you!

  • I don't think words can describe how it feels to watch the water creeps along the channels and fill the floodplains... We spent the whole day (13th of March 2018) watching its progress, followed by hundreds of egrets and herons feasting on the insects pushed away by the water.

    And the next day when we woke up, the flood plains in front of Jumbo Junction were full with water and it was time to take the mokoros out...

    Here is a time-lapse video of the flood...
