Charlie and Steve's Excellent Adventure

Tasting the world one meal at a time

Month / April 2015

While you were working – Success, Nxai Pans, Botswana

Like wrenching our heads out of the water in an old fashioned apple bobbing contest we plunge our senses back into the all encompassing world that is the National Parks network of Botswana. It remains to be determined if we are masochistic or optimistic; probably both but it’s the ratio which seems undetermined, and just […]

While you were working – Blood, Maun, Botswana

There’s been highs, there’s been lows, there’s been memorable experiences, tranquility and excitement and that’s just the last 24 hours. We leave the parks today for bitumen sterility and sanity, these two concepts go together so elegantly around here. Travelling in P.N.G. has up until now held the dubious honour of having the worst roads […]

While you were working – The Cycle, Moremi, Botswana

The sun rises and falls in a rhythm so much more present and tangible than we are used to, no curtains shield from a bright dawn and camp lighting is so feeble in banishing darker corners. And so it goes, our temporary reinvention to our less modernised selves sees us up at 5:30am in accordance […]

While you were working – Looking and Seeing, Moremi, Botswana

We now have the environment and atmosphere that we were searching for all this time, it’s just not quite where we expected it to be. Beautiful environments we […]

While you were working – Angels, Moremi, Botswana

It rains and it rains and it rains, our night spent in the tent has been punctuated by the relentless teeming of an out of season downpour. In a rare clearing we are up and full of vigour for the day ahead, eager to get away we are in the car, first stop the most […]

While you were working – Take Two, Chobe, Botswana

Today is the day, after the thrills and spills that made our short jaunt into Zimbabwe we are finally making it into Chobe National Park. We’re thoroughly tuned into the sun so for now we barely need an alarm, we’re up, packed and off before 7am, quite a miracle for me. It’s with no small […]

While you were working – Lost Youth, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

We’ve been staring at the mist rising up from the falls for two days now, the falls themselves humbly waiting their turn in the line of incredible sights this town has thrown our way. But the wait is no longer, one of the worlds great three falls alongside Iguazu which borders Argentina and Brazil and […]
