As a kid, I would watch “Wild Kingdom” on TV and dream of traveling to Africa, to see for myself that great continent’s wildlife, landscape and people.
My dream came true in April of 2009, when I began a journey to explore South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Tanzania and Kenya. My companions and I covered approximately 10,000 kilometers over 43 days, and suffered only one flat tire—on our final day, just one hour from Nairobi.
I’ve arranged these photos chronologically so that you follow my journey day-by-day, as I travel from Cape Town to Nairobi. Each image tells a story of its own, while also composing a part of the overall adventure.
