South Africa.featured

South Africa is incredible and is another country that is so far one of my top five favorite spots in the world. In one 12 day span I was able to go on safari where lions stood 20 feet away, visit a wine region that blew my mind and put a clearly well respected place like Napa to shame, and experience the absolutely gorgeous Capetown which is essentially a very cool city on a stunning beach backdrop.  I cannot say enough good things about this historical, interesting, and fascinating country.  Below is how I spent my time there.
