Luxury hotels and fun in The Bazaruto Archipelago in Mozambique
There are many elegant lodges on the Bazaruto Archipelago. This is a low impact up market tourism economy which has a lot of catching on to do. The Azura is the most chic of all the boutique hotels in Mozambique.  The décor in this place is so well done that it would definitely stand out in a world of interior designs.  The look that this place has is quite amazing.  It is clean, spare, and colored quite naturally.  Entire look of this place is quite ceramic with marine life. There is an African twist as well.  The chairs are sculpted and for an instance you could sit right beside the wooden table and have urchin shaped porcelain lights. There are about fifteen different suits which have been set off in a private beach garden with loungers.  You get huge plungers what have pools that  [...]

Serious Jungle fun in Ghana
The British colonists especially liked the Kumasi.  The rolling hills which are cool and wooded, is a good retreat from the humidity of the entire coast.  This is quite an affluent city. The traffic here is impossible though. You could spend about three hours just walking around the market and this happens to be one of the biggest markets in all of West Africa.  Town criers and other traders who are here to silt heir crafts. These people sell everything from bats made of fruit to nails that are almost the size of a fist. There is a railway right in the middle that runs right through the market place.  Although this is unused and the railway is blocked with the many stalls that come up in its way. This is what it looks like, until you hear a hoot of a far away train and suddenly all the  [...]

Transformation : Slave fort to nightclub in Ghana
If you would see through the sea mist from the road, you could go to cape coast that makes it all look like an old print made from sepia. There are old trading houses which are faded and the ones that keep trailing on from one beach to the other. There are huge fishing rows and canoes that follow. There are fishermen who mend nets beneath the snouts of canons. These point out the lime washed ramparts. When you look through it, it seems as it must be for somewhere more than to hundred years. This is when the gold coast came to be one of the richest and most self explained platforms for the trading of slaves in all of western Africa. There are many heavy showers that you might have to wait for it to pass. You could then follow your guide along the path s you face harsh sunlight. This whole thing  [...]

Living the Rafting dream in the Nile Rapid
Malaloo is a word for Crazy in Luganda. Luganda happens to be one of the main languages here in Uganda.  Malaloo is rapid which one of the coolest rapids here is in this country.  This place just happens to be one of the nicest places to visit and once you come here you would know that this is a completely physical freakishness.  In fact the rapid almost roars on one side of this river. The other side in fact is quite flat and you will see the rapid bouncing quite rapidly over the white water. This just crosses right into the river and once you come here you could easily paddle back up and come down again and then go back up again and come down again. So basically you have something real fun and you would probably do it till you drop out because of being that tired. Most people do this about  [...]

Adventure and fun in the Nile
When you get to do this about ten times, the guide will almost effortlessly steer the raft into the sweet spot. This is where you stay. You should no be too surprised to know that you are suspended smack in the middle of the Nile. And you would most probably get battered by the water that thrashes against the vessel. If you really want to, you could try the boogie boards. Later on you could jump in on your belly when then when you point yourself downstream, you will find that precise current that had you got fixed in clear stream of white water , in the very first place. It is almost like surfing on a wave that never ends. This is probably the best way to end your trip.  Later on you could climb back up on the bus. By now you must be completely exhausted, sunburned with swollen shoulders  [...]

Cape Town loves to enchant
Our three days of fun filled enjoyment in Cape Town had us begging for more. It simply exceeded my expectations. The history of the place itself is riveting, the friendly people will have you at ‘hello’ and the dollar here is stronger than ever. We reveled in the marvel of this city as it became part of our travel onboard the SilverSea Cruise. South Africa is a paradise destination which is far away from any tourist destination so like us tourists can spend some few days during the pre and the post cruise period to visit the untouched countryside and the town side. We did some exciting thing here a recap. You cannot miss driving or walking about in the down town region of Cape Town. This is the best way to understand the spirit and experience life in the city. The diverse architecture  [...]
