Episode 5: Our Favorite Places in Africa

In this week’s episode (listen here), Jomi and Hadley reminisce on some of their favorite places in Africa and quickly walk you through what makes these places so special.

 

They reveal their favorite place to:

  • go on a walking safari

  • get off the beaten tourist track

  • go on a first time safari

  • feel like it’s your 1st time to Africa even if it’s your 10th, and more.

 

They’ll also reveal what countries they are dying to go to next and why!

Below, see photos of the places and experiences Jomi and Hadley discuss in the podcast...
