South Africa

Being South African, my husband and I frequent 

A trip around South Africa is probably right up your street. A cable car ride up Table Mountain from Cape Town, trying to capture the table cloth clouds as they drape over this beautiful city. The Garden Route drive from the southern Cape of Africa through Stellenbosch and into some of the finest Wine country in the world. A quick flight up to Johannesburg opens up the wonderful oportunity to visit Sun City, the Las Vegas of Africa, the Lion Park in Lanseria, giving you the chance to hold one of the Big 5 (while only cubs - AMAZING) and finally a bus journey away is the Kruger National Park, South Africa's most famous wildlife National Park.
