What a beautiful day here in Hazeyview, South Africa (near Krueger Park). Let’s take the opportunity to drive the Panorama Route which will take us into the Drakensberg Mountains.

Heading for Cape Point in Table Mountain National Park (South Africa) we expected to see ocean views as the cape is advertised as the place where two oceans meet… (challenge question. What are the two oceans that meet here?) but we did not expect to see ostriches! However, on the way to the cape, we stopped […]

Our tour began in Cape Town. If you have looked at our photos from Cape Town (especially the ones taken from the top of Table Mountain), it would be easy to believe that you were at the very tip of Africa. However, look at a map of the region and you quickly realize there is more land south. […]

Next question. Here we are at a crossroads…Table Mountain or Camps Bay? (Hint: click on the photo to enlarge it) […]
