After a scrummy brekkie of egg and bacon (bacon … we hadn’t seen bacon in a while) we headed out to start the day’s cycling in the direction of Makuzi Beach, 60 odd k’s away. We’d been looking forward to Makuzi since we entered Malawi so you can imagine our shock and horror when weRead More

So we stayed at Chembe Eagle’s Nest another day, and I rested, but Suzann wouldn’t allow me to cycle until my resting heart rate was satisfactory, in her professional opinion. Hence, it would be her out front on the bike, heading for Senga Bay. Despite the fact that we left quite early from Chembe, sheRead More
… and there it came to pass … the runs finally caught up with us … Still thinking that we’d take some time out to take a catamaran trip out to the island in the reserve to snorkel amongst the chiclids, we sat down to a meal at the lodge. The wind was up butRead More
Dedza Pottery Lodge was a great place to stay and we had a good, restful night. Packing up the sky looked purple and bruised, the clouds heavily pregnant with the first rains. A local camper told us the weather forecast had predicted showers from 11am. That would give us a few hours to cycle dry,Read More
I’d never prayed harder than I did last night … we all did, asking God to send His angels to camp all around us and keep us safe. And of course, He did. But somewhat of a rushed packing we hadn’t completed yet on this trip … anything to ‘just get away’. We left …Read More
… so we never did get to cycle much of a ‘symbolic’ distance on the Great East Road even though the condition of the road did improve from the Luangwa bridge toward Chipata. The reason for this is simply … distance. Chipata is still over 300km from the Luangwa bridge and with the increasing numberRead More
Let’s just face facts and tell it like it is … shall we? Zambia is a bust! Riding out on the Great East Road on a recce mission just confirmed our suspicions … the Great East Road may very well be east, but it sure isn’t great … Suzann tried to cycle from the villageRead More
So there we were, up before the dawn thought of cracking, to meet our ‘fixer’ at the border at 7am. Chobe Safari Lodge was good to us and it was a bit sad to leave this idyllic spot and drive the 10km to Kazungula. Due to construction on the new bridge at the border, aRead More
Well, the 130km down in the direction of Pandamatenga … again, did not go as smoothly as planned. Don’t get me wrong, we had no major incidents but I was exhausted. Suzann of course, doesn’t know when to quit. Although the dreaded wind was much less, the heat got us. I tried my best toRead More
