Kevin and Michelle's African & European Travels

Welcome to our website

Having taken early retirement in 2007 we wanted to spend time travelling in Southern Africa. We’d been to South Africa several times previously as Kevin's sister and her family live there.

From 2008 until 2016 we spent most of our time travelling around Southern Africa in a variety of camping setups and had a fantastic time visiting some amazing places.

In September 2016 we returned to the UK as I (Michelle) needed 3 monthly checkups for an in-transit lymph melanoma. We decided to carry on with our travels and bought a camper van. We intend to spend most of our time travelling in Europe but will be returning to South Africa from time to time.

This page and ones from the last few years are in a wider format than the earlier pages.

Christmas Day lunch in the South of France.

Our UK camper van is an Autosleeper Kingham. We prefer panel vans as we like having the big sliding door but also wanted a fixed rear bed, which the Kingham has.

For the last few years travelling in Southern Africa we had a Hilux and a Bush Lapa off-road caravan.
