Penguin Stories of Antarctica – Surviving Petermann Island

Penguin Stories of Antarctica - Surviving Petermann Island

Let’s face it, everyone likes penguins and everyone likes Antarctica. Definitely, one of my trip to Antarctica highlights was the opportunity of being in so close contact with thousands and thousands of penguins. Of course I’ve seen penguins in other places in the world (Ecuador, Peru, Chile and Argentina), but, penguins, ice, and the incredible inhospitable scenery of Antarctica are somehow the perfect combination. Penguins are the genuine land inhabitants of the Antarctic continent, I mean, they control the whole thing (expect for the nasty and scary leopard seals and orcas of course). Some penguins will welcome you, some will try to bite your pants and boots, but the majority will just be curious. On this page I will try to tour you around the places where I’ve seen penguins. But first let’s read a story about penguin survival in Petermann Island. Petermann Island Life & Death Story Petermann Island is…

Feeding Hyenas in Ethiopia – Wild Beasts Encounter

Wild Beasts Encounter - Feeding Hyenas in Ethiopia

Feeding Hyenas in Ethiopia Clank! That was the sound of Africa’s second strongest bite in close contact with my ear. For a quick moment, it actually crossed my mind the possibility of losing it.

Harar – Ethiopia Ethiopia is an amazing country and after two weeks I discovered a place of ancient history, beautiful and friendly people, good food and amazing scenery.

Self-Drive Safaris in South Africa Parks & Game Reserves - How to Travel Independently

Self-Drive Safaris in South Africa Do you want to make a self-drive safari in South Africa’s Parks & Game Reserves? One of my last road trips was to the southern part of Africa. I traveled with a rental car through countries such as South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia and Botswana. I got my plane ticket just a couple of days before departure and had nothing organized. I only knew I would like to visit the most UNESCO World Heritage sites possible. So, I got myself a Michelin road map and circled these UNESCO sites with a marker. I quickly drew a possible and logical itinerary in southern Africa. During one month I drove around 9000 km / 5590 mi, in which I experienced and got some knowledge regarding self-driving in National Parks and Game Reserves around all these countries. This travel article will only focus on my self-drive safaris…
