United Air Charter are very proud to be part and on the front cover of Partick Cruywagen new book: Your Bucket List.
This book is the result of a decade of southern African travel while working for SA 4x4 magazine as their Bush Editor. I like to call it the best decade of my life, as during this time I was able to visit just about every river, waterfall, lake, mountain, pass and national park found within this very special part of Africa. You can experience thousands of memorable and must-do-at-least-once-in-your-lifetime activities when traveling through southern Africa. For this book narrow them down to only 150. We decided to include Tanzania, Angola and Kenya in our list of countries covered, because once you are in Northern Africa Zambia or Namibia some of these are just a short border crossing away. Anyone can reside in southern Africa, but to truly experience the place or call yourself a local you need to tick off as many of these activities on this bucket list as possible.
We might not all have the physical capabilities to do something as crazy as run the Comrades Marathon but you still need to go and experience it at least once or support a mate who is doing it. While some of the activities on our list are are pretty straightforward, such as going to see the penguins at Boulders, we have given others a unique twist to heighten the experience. You will see that instead of just telling you to go to Victoria Falls, I suggest swimming in the Devil's Pool on the edge of the falls, or taking a helicopter flip to a private island just downstream from them.
My wish is that this book will serve as a reminder of all the great activities and experience on offer in southern Africa and, more importantly, I hope that it inspires you to go out there and do as many of them as possible. Get ticking!
