I’m back from Africa. As with any great trip, I have a bit of a post-travel hangover. But before I give in and settle back into life in London, I have one last memory to share: an Africa travel video. I managed to condense three weeks of travel into two quick minutes, and I hope you enjoy the result!
I’m nervous about Kruger. It’s one of the most famous places for safaris in Africa, but will it live up to the hype? South Africa Tourism put it on my travel itinerary, so I’m flying from Cape Town to Hoedspruit, and will have to wait and see. The only thing left to think about is how it will compare with the safaris I’ve just done in Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Botswana.
We’re foraging today. I never thought I would forage for my lunch in the middle of a city, but I’m told that Cape Town has enough food within its borders to provide me with a healthy meal. I’ll believe it when I eat it.
I’ve never eaten dinner with a hammer before. Nor have I walked past a blazing fire pit with two ostriches grilling inside. But this is South Africa, and they take their food seriously here. As a guest at a special dinner Stellenbosch, I want to fit in, so I pick up a hammer and decide to see where the evening takes me.
Johannesburg doesn’t get many visitors. Most people that fly into the airport are either in transit or traveling to one of the famous South Africa safari destinations like Kruger National Park. The city is best known to outsiders as being a dangerous, crime-ridden zone.
I thought that five days would be more than enough to see Cape Town. I was wrong. There was so much to do and see in the city and along the cape that my boyfriend and I easily filled five days and could have spent another five.
