Explore the White Desert in Egypt

The pandemic has left each and every one of us adventure-less, but that doesn’t mean we cannot explore, discover and learn more about the beauties this world has to offer. After all this is over, all you need to do is plan your next trip to make the dream of adventure a reality.

2Ultimate Camping Meal Plan Packing List

Did you see the Ultimate Campsite Packing Gear Guide? When it comes to camping and glamping, I like to plan out as much as possible to make the experience less stressful and allow myself to be more in the moment rather than scrambling…because I forgot to pack something.

Top 5 places in Africa to see endangered animals

Most animals in Africa are to some extent endangered, though the term usually refers to an animal that is in danger of extinction. The causes are mostly linked to mankind – poaching for food or the pet and “medicinal” trades, as well as loss of habitat due to climate change and competition for land.


High quality safaris positively contribute to helping endangered animals and the people who live nearby.  Many of the best safari lodges are located on private reserves where the owners actively partner with local people to conserve wildlife and where tourism income reaches those people.
