Back from Central Africa

I have just returned from exploring Central Africa. Unlike my previous trip – the Cape to Cairo – which had a clear destination, this one could have ended anywhere. In approximately 30 days, I travelled by public transport from Johannesburg – through Zimbabwe, Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and then back to Uganda and Kenya. Besides just travelling, I had six things on my TO-DO List:

1. Take a ride on a ferry (MV Liemba) on Lake Tanganyika
2. Stand on the equator in Uganda
3. Bungee jump on the source of the Nile
4. Visit the Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre
5. Get upclose and personal with the mountain gorillas in Rwanda
6. Visit the remote source of the Nile River at Nyungwe forest in Rwanda.

Welcome to Sihle Khumalo’s Blog

Sihle KhumaloWelcome onto my blog where, I hope, we will be able to share wonderful, incredible, good and bad stories about Africa. Definitely not a dark continent*, although, I have to concede, sometimes she is dusty. Very dusty.

The fact is, it just cannot get any better than Africa – the cradle of mankind. Something of a motto for this blog. Feel at home… you are most welcome.
