Day 7 Bekopaka - Morondava
After a few days exploring the magnificent Tsingy limestone formations of Tsingy de Bemahara it was time for us to depart back to Morondava. There is only one route to Morondava, so we were retracing our tracks from a few days before. We were all becoming old hands at Madagascan Ferry crossings, despite our confidence we still loaded and unloaded the cars very ‘’mora mora’’ slowly slowly guided by the ferrymen. The base of the rivers crossed was n

Day 3 Antsirbe – Morondava

So, it was an early start with a hearty breakfast of bread, fruit, cereals, cold meats and some local hot dishes of fried donuts, beans, rice, sausage, cassava, and crepes (as you may have gathered the food has been delicious this adventure). The first part of our drive out of town was through, yet again, a bustling melee of pe
We are already counting the days until our Self-Drive Adventure reunion on March 10th 2018. The last photographic competition was a great addition to the reunion and an excellent way to relive some of the beautiful memories of the far remote places and exotic animals experienced on our adventures. For our 2018 reunion, we have decided to not only run another photographic competition but also include an ‘’ On The Road ‘’ bread-making and short story competition for those that
Day 0 : Welcome to Tana !
We set off on our 27-day Adventure of Madagascar with an effortless 3-hour flight from Johannesburg to Antananarivo or ‘Tana’ as the local Malagasy fondly call it. Landing at Antananarivo airport takes one back in time to when terminals where much smaller, a walk on the tarmac wasn’t out of the question, and there was no mistaking which carousel your bags are on as there is only one! Mike and I were greeted by our transfer driver Ubi, who took us o
We are delighted to announce that will be running an Exploratory Vietnamese Self Drive Adventure from 17th Sep until 4th October 2018. Earlier this year we sadly had to call off our first Vietnamese Self Drive Adventure after learning that a week-long delay on issuing temporary drivers licenses was imposed without any warning. After our initial disappointment, we have been working closely with our Vietnamese tour operator to see if there was any way we could run this adventur
