  6. Mike Leonard asked a question about The Seahorse Nursery in Recife, Brazil

    "I definitely want to go here. What else would you do on a trip that visits Reclife?"

  7. Mike Leonard wrote a holiday idea Self fly tour of Mozambique, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia and Botswana

    "Visit some of Africa's wildest regions on this inspirational self-fly trip."

  8. Mike Leonard reviewed Tuli Safari Lodge in Botswana

    This was our last port of call before returning to South Africa. The camp is one of two which have been built on the banks of the Limpopo River which separates Botswana from her first world neighbour to the south. The area in winter has a stark beauty wh…"

  9. Mike Leonard reviewed Biodiversity of the Okavango River Delta in NW Botswana, Botswana

    "Maun is the gateway to the famous Okavango Delta. Everyone asks how there can be a delta in the middle of the Kalahari desert. Good question. The sea that the river flowed into has gone missing, but does reappear from time to time in what is now called t…"

  11. Mike Leonard reviewed Thamalakane River Lodge in Botswana

    Maun is the gateway to the famous Okavango Delta. Everyone asks how there can be a delta in the middle of the Kalahari desert. Good question. The sea that the river flowed into has gone missing, but does reappear from time to time in what is now called t…"

  12. Mike Leonard reviewed Flatdogs Safari Camp in Zambia

    A flatdog is slang for a crocodile, and there are lots of them, and lots of hippos too, in the muddy Luanda river. This is popular safari country, and when you do a game drive here it is reminiscent of Oxford Street just before Christmas, with big double…"

  13. Mike Leonard reviewed Club Makokola in Malawi

    The Club Med-ish name didn't give rise to high hopes as we left Mozambique, and flew south over the immensity of Lake Malawi. According to the publicity, Club Mak has its own international airport, but we knew we were still in Africa when we were asked t…"

  14. Mike Leonard reviewed The Lugenda Wilderness Camp in Mozambique

    "The Lugenda Wilderness Camp was the high point of our journey. Everything about this place is first class, particularly the most luxurious tent that I have ever slept in or even imagined; I think Colonel Gadaffi would be envious. The camp is set up every…"

  15. Mike Leonard reviewed The Tembo Hotel in Zanzibar, Tanzania

    Old fashioned luxury on the seafront and in the middle of Stonetown, across the road from where Freddie Mercury was born, who could ask for more? Staying there was like stepping back in time. It is decorated with antiques throughout, yet the rooms were v…"

  16. Mike Leonard reviewed Kendwa Rocks Hotel in Zanzibar, Tanzania

    The northwest coast of Zanzibar has been developed in the last ten years to resemble a cross between the Spanish Costas and the Caribbean, with the same type of tourism. It is a disappointment for anyone looking for the exotic spice island of one’s…"

  17. Mike Leonard reviewed Kilwa Seaview Resort in Tanzania

    "Tanzania being that much further from South Africa and lacking that influence, is more third worldly than the places we visited in Mozambique. Kilwa has a nice big air strip, but no real tourism to go with it. We stayed in a locally run lodge called the …"

  18. Mike Leonard reviewed Pemba Beach Hotel in Pemba, Mozambique

    Pemba is the entry and exit point from northern Mozambique and the hub for the Quirimbas Archipelago which includes Ibo Island. We stayed at the very comfortable Pemba Beach Hotel, a typical five star beach side resort owned by Rani Resorts. I am told th…"

  19. Mike Leonard reviewed Illa de Mozambique in Ilha de Mocambique, Mozambique

    Something of a tourist hot-spot by Mozambique standards, but still pretty quiet, this tiny walkable island with its 16th century Portuguese fortress was the original capital of the country before Maputo, and is a United Nations world heritage site. It is…"

  20. Mike Leonard reviewed Chitenga Safari Camp in Beira, Mozambique

    A government run safari lodge inland from Beira whose attitude towards tourists is unencouraging. And there really isn't much reason for tourists to go. An unfortunate aftermath of the civil war in Mozambique is that there is very little game, particular…"

  21. Mike Leonard reviewed Pestana Bazaruto Lodge in Mozambique

    This beachside hotel complex has its own airstrip and the transfer is made in a covered trailer pulled by a spanking new John Deere tractor which pulls one through a rather primitive village, whose inhabitants, in socialist Mozambique, are the actual own…"

  22. Mike Leonard reviewed Zongoene Lodge in Xai-Xai, Mozambique

    Zongoene Lodge has been built at the mouth of the Limpopo river, 140 km north along the coast from Maputo, where the sound of the Indian Ocean pounds against the shoreline on the other side of the estuary. It caters primarily for sports fishing but offer…"

  24. Mike Leonard reviewed Victoria Falls in Livingstone, Zimbabwe

    To be able to see the falls from the air, and then the ground an hour later is a blessing known only to aviators and tourists with the funds to charter a helicopter. The fame of the falls speaks for itself, and is entirely justified. I won’t go int…"
