WINTER IN ZULULAND

 

My very first journey saw me miss the winter in the rest of South Africa, while zig-zagging through the magnificent Zululand on South Africa’s Elephant coast. The only place in South Africa where you might encounter a hippo in your garden!

CHASING WATERFALLS IN MPUMALANGA 2016

 

In the midst of a severe drought, the misty mornings and mind-blowing scenery on this trip made one forget about the climate issues. A road trip through one of South Africa’s top tourist destinations should be on your bucket list. Pack a cozzie, and a bottle of Amarula for those fireplace evenings!

SANDSTONE CLIFFS IN THE FREESTATE 2017

 

Autumn in the Free State sees the sandstone mountains glow a warm orange. Days are warm, and the magical mountains hide many secrets for the explorer. Don’t miss the quaint town of Rosendal in the shadow of The Witteberge.
