Issaquah family gets the most from their trip —
Many people travel to Africa to sightsee, or to go on safaris. But Issaquah’s Leist family had a different agenda.
The family explored parts of Africa in a Land Cruiser stocked with camping equipment this past summer and focused on the culture and the people.
Scott, Sally, Maggie (15) and Anna (12) Leist, along with some family friends, spent five weeks visiting Johannesburg, South Africa, the coast of Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Kenya. About one-third of that time was spent driving from place to place and sleeping in tents on top of their rental car.
