my backpacking africa route

In 2013, I backpacked from Cape Town to Cairo all by myself using only public transportation. No planes--just an obscene amount of bus rides, a few crazy cargo boats, 1 train, and a lot of hitchhiking. It was the most life changing, adventurous, and wildly awesome time of my life.

The Backpacking Africa E-book

My book and guides are a collection of everything I wish I would have known before I went and what I learned along the way. It's a step by step guide of how you backpack Africa and what you need to know before and during your trip to save money, stay safe, and avoid all the stupid things I did.
