Coffee Bay – Escape from a Nightmare Travel Situation

After reading some guides online on where would be a good place to visit in South Africa, we decided to do a quick stop in Coffee Bay so we can explore the local infamous wild coast. Located here is some of the best beaches for surfing. The only downside is that you must drive through some of the worst unpaved roads in South Africa.

Everything seems to be going according to plan. The drive down towards the beach city of Coffee Bay was difficult due to the terrible road conditions. We made the most of it by waving at the locals who at first looks at us like we are aliens because I don’t think any Asians ever go to this area. After breaking the ice by waving at the school children, they would have the biggest smile on their face as they proceed to greet us warmly as we drive through the difficult terrain.

We eventually make it to our hostel called Sugarloaf Backpackers and spend the night making a few friends with other travellers.

So far so good right? The next morning, we pack up and ready to head to our next destination. As we drive towards the exit of the city to return to the terrible roads and eventually get on the highway, there appears to be a wooden wagon and rocks blocking the road preventing us from leaving this place.

5 Reasons to Take a Self-Driving Kruger National Park Safari

After completing my Middle Eastern segment, I was sick of being part of tours. Listening to a tour guide speak, taking a few pictures before heading to the next stop is not something I want to do again. I can’t stand it any longer!

That’s why when Karen and myself planned on going on a Kruger National Park safari, we knew we needed to take matters into our own hands and do a self-driven safari tour as oppose to having someone guide us.

This turned out to be one of the best decisions we have ever made, and has made my time in Kruger National Park my number one favourite during my entire time in South Africa.

Here are the reasons why doing your own self-driven safari in Kruger is the only way to go:
