6.19.18. Today on the blog, Nata Bird Sanctuary in photos. We were up in Nata last month for an amazing visit to that area and we camped at the bird sanctuary, a community owned trust that is an important migratory stop-over for many species. We were a bit late for the big migrations, but we did see lots of amazing scenery and lots is species, including this yellow-billed stork. Link in the bio.

About Julie and Steve

IMG_3180.jpg

Steve and Julie – Nxai Pans National Park, Botswana

Julie and Steve Edwards travel the American west and the world from their home base in the Last Best Place – Missoula, Montana.

IMG_7639A passionate traveler and lover of highways, dirt roads, and hiking trails, Julie has wandered through twenty countries in North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East and is always looking for the next destination. Julie’s travel writing and photography have been featured in the Christian Science Monitor, SA4x4 Overland Adventure Magazine, Travel Africa, She Explores, and Camas: The Nature of the West.

Steve grew up hiking and skiing in the Rocky Mountains, tinkering with old VWs, and dreaming of far off places. He’s summited the Grand Teton, fly-fished the Madison River, and camped under the stars in some of the remotest parts of Utah. A healthy appetite for travel literature stoked a sense of adventure that has taken him to 18 countries in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. He’s slurped noodles in Singapore, hiked mountains in Italy and Ireland, run from sauna to lake in Finland, driven a scooter around a Thai island, and overlanded through southern Africa. He loves puns, paper maps, and all points (yet) unknown.

His skills include adventure trip planning, keeping his Jeep running through ongoing mechanical alchemy, being able to drive like a local in any city he visits, and catching things that fall before they hit the ground. He blogs with the small but knowledgeable crew at Jalopnik’s overland blog, Overland & Expedition.

Julie and Steve have also been on the teaching staff at Overland Expo East and Overland Expo West. They have been exploring southern Africa for the last year from their home in Gaborone, Botswana, where Julie is a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Botswana.
