After a break doing bike repairs back home in the States, we flew ourselves and our motorcycle to Cape Town to start our great African journey.

After South America, we headed home to get married, do bike repairs, and get our paperwork and plans straight before flying from Montreal to Cape Town.
In September of 2019, we flew ourselves and the motorcycle to Cape Town, and after un-crating the bike (and learning how to ride on the opposite side of the road), we headed out to explore penguin bays, baboon valleys, and dragon mountains.
The deep Namibian sands were not friendly to our monoshock, which we unfortunately broke. But waiting for parts gave us the opportunity to rent a car and explore some the country on four wheels instead of two.
As we crossed the landlocked country of Zambia, we immersed ourselves in the greenery, the steaming forests, and of course, Africa's greatest waterfalls: Victoria Falls.

After being locked down in Uganda for seven months, the borders opened, and we headed east to live in a small town on the slopes of Mt. Kenya - a perfect haven that was close to both rhinos and elephants.
