Africa Solo

Rowley Macklin has spent several years traveling through Africa and runs Africa Solo, "a more personal site about travel and Africa." He spent 6 months as an Ostrich tour guide and 1 year setting up and managing Wildlife Conservation Farms in Kenya. Very cool.

Although he states that he was mugged three times in one month in Zambia, he seems to have come through OK. In fact, he says he met

"a really nice family in a small village to the North-east of Zambia, who let me stay in one of their huts for two weeks. That was really different and special for me, and I could have easily stayed there for ages. This really gave me the chance to see Village life for real."

Most visitors to Zambia would never take the time to learn about Zambia this way. Good job, Rowley.
