On a road trip to the tiny country of Swaziland, we found a few game reserves and national parks where you can experience some good old fashioned bush time.
The time spent as a young girl growing up in Botswana and Zimbabwe, with holidays in the Southern African bush from the Kalahari to Hwange to the forests of the Tsitsikamma undoubtedly planted the seed which itches at my feet and fabricates dreams of exploration and adventure. I spent years working as a lecturer, teacher, event coordinator and manager but still with a yearning to write and see more global landscapes and continental sunsets. My love of food, travel, people, conservation and adventure has just evolved into a frantic passion while clocking my hours in the corporate world. I eventually decided to scratch my itch and get going on that adventure!Follow @colblaine
