The last part of this trip we spend in Limpopo, the poorest province in South Africa. But Limpopo has the most friendly people, I have never felt so comfortable and welcome! In Vaalwater we enjoy the wildlife at Kololo and Welgevonden and in the area of Louis Trichardt we get acquainted with the Venda and Tsonga culture. This northern part of South Africa is one big surprise to me.
We left Johannesburg and go north towards Magaliesburg. The landscape changes as soon as we leave the city. Magaliesburg and the surrounding area have a lot to offer, like The Cradle of Humankind and Sterkfontein Caves. The Magaliesberg mountain range is great for adventure seekers!
When I visited South Africa for the first time in 2012, I fell in love! The world in one country, as South Africa is known, gets under your skin and you will always want to go back to this immense, diverse and colourful country. This adventure starts 3 years later, in the city of Johannesburg.
Part 3 of an amazing educational trip to South Africa. Cape Town is vibrant, friendly and diverse. The Cape Peninsula is stunningly beautiful, Chapman’s Peak Drive one of the best drives in the world. A perfect ending to an incredible trip.
Part 2: fom Knysna to Cape Town. We drive the Garden Route, along Route 62… it is a complety different South Africa from the north where the trip started. On this part of the journey I discover who is my partner in crime/wine and I get inspired by the good work being done in and around the townships!
It is about 3pm. I am sitting at my desk, booking a holiday for a client, when my boss comes out his office and asks: do you want to go to South Africa tomorrow? Are you kidding me, I ask? No, he’s not! All of a sudden I have to rush home to pack my suitcase.
