A couple from Calgary Canada drives around Africa


A couple from Calgary Canada drives around Africa


A couple in Calgary Alberta said goodbye to their kids and grandkids and took off for a trip around the African continent in a Toyota Land Cruiser, filming as they went.

It's a fascinating and compelling series of videos, some parts of Africa are better than we think, but the bad parts, they're as bad as we've heard if not worse.

Either way it's a nice slice of what a handful of African countries are really like in a day to day basis. Much great footage including feeding African Cichlids in Lake Malawi and the legendary red ochre painted semi naked nomads, The Himba in Angola and Namibia.

I spent a few days pulling stills out of the video so you can in one glance have a look at the best scenes from all the videos at once.
