We’ve planned an exciting virtual travel itinerary for you for the coming week! We are going to “visit” a specific South African city every day for the next six days. We have chosen Johannesburg, Pretoria, Kimberley, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town, and will share interesting facts about these cities and give a few recommendations for activities to do in each city post-lockdown.
The relatively small West African country of Ghana, located on the Bulge of Africa, is best known for becoming the first country in sub-Saharan Africa to become independent following colonisation.
Today, it’s a bustling and peaceful multi-party democracy and home to about 31- million people. A relatively small country, Ghana is bordered by the Ivory Coast to the west, Burkina Faso to the north, Togo to the east and the Atlantic Ocean to the south.
If you live in Gauteng and are desperate to get out into nature, a good option while Covid-19 restrictions are in place is the Ezemvelo Nature Reserve.
The reserve is about an hour and a half’s drive from Johannesburg, east of Pretoria and just north of Bronkhorstspruit, right on Gauteng’s eastern boundary with Mpumalanga.
The layers of Serbian history are like an elaborate baklava tasted on the pavement outside a Belgrade café in summer – rich, delicate and complex.
Early one crisp evening in the year before the world changed, I strolled alone from my cottage in South Africa’s heartland of the Great Karoo into the surrounding scrubby bush. Purple mountains ringed the horizon and fluffy white clouds scudded across the lavender sky. As I breathed in some of the sweetest, purest air you could ever find, a loud hiss stopped me in my tracks.
While we won’t be able to travel for quite a while, there are several ways we can still enjoy this beautiful country of ours. Here are some of our favourites.
