July 2019 issue is out!

Posted on 18 June 2019

In the July issue of Getaway, you’ll follow Carinè Müller, who was about to embark on a most unusual voyage from Lamu to Zanzibar on a plastic dhow.You can read about her adventure and its powerful message concerning ocean pollution. Similarly, Erlo and Lauren Brown’s astonishing hike from Cape Agulhas to the Angola border had, as one of its aims, making people aware of the plastic soiling our shores. From birding in KwaZulu-Natal to e-biking through the Namaqualand daisies and hiking the Tugela from source to sea (our cover story), we hope you’ll have an equally adventurous July!

Chiara Turilli – Indian cuisine, page 44. 

This year, we’re being inspired by 12 iconic travel destinations – and the cuisine that can take you there instantly. This month it gets somewhat spicy.

Matthew Sterne – Tugela, page 48. 

The Tugela is considered to be South Africa’s wildest river. Getaway went rough and remote while tracking the course of ‘The Startling One’ from source to sea.

Carinè Müller – East Coast of Africa, page 88. 

This is the story of a boat made from flip-flops, toothbrushes and water bottles, which sailed down the East Coast of Africa from Kenya to Zanzibar to save our seas.

Justin Fox – Japan, page 96. 

Come September, Japan will reverberate to the roar of crowds and the shrill referees’ whistles. In the run-up to the Rugby World Cup, we visited the island nation to hike its back roads. Once an ancient highway through the Japanese Alps from Kyoto to Tokyo, the Nakasendo Way is today a forgotten byway made for slackpacking holidays.
