Om Your Bucket List
This book is the result of a decade of southern African travel while working for SA4x4 magazine as their BushEditor. I like to call it the best decade of my life, as during this time I was able to visit just about every river,waterfall, lake, mountain, pass and national park found within this very special part of Africa. You canexperience thousands of memorable and must-do-at-least-once-in- your-lifetime activities when travellingthrough southern Africa. For this book we had to narrow them down to only 150. We decided to includeTanzania, Angola and Kenya in our list of countries covered, because once you are in northern Zambia orNamibia, some of these are just a short border crossing away. Anyone can reside in southern Africa, but to truly experience the place or call yourself a local you need to tickoff as many of the activities on this bucket list as possible. We might not all have the physical capabilities to dosomething as crazy as run the Comrades Marathon, but you still need to go and experience it at least once orsupport a mate who is doing it. While some of the activities on our list are pretty straightforward, such as goingto see the penguins at Boulders, we have given others a unique twist to heighten the experience. You will seethat instead of just telling you to go to the Victoria Falls, I suggest swimming in the Devil's Pool on the edge ofthe falls, or taking a helicopter flip to a private island just downstream from them. My wish is that this bookwill serve as a reminder of all the great activities and experiences on offer in southern Africa and, moreimportantly, I hope that it inspires you to go out there and do as many of them as possible. Get ticking!
