South Africa: A travellers haven

with 2 comments

Travelling overseas as a South African is always an eye opener.  Experiencing different cultures and ways of life and different people is an enriching experience.


I was in Australia a while back and suddenly realized there is no wild life.  I managed to spot a kangaroo from a distance and even the sheep were pretty scarce on the East Coast.


Back home in the Eastern Cape on the southern tip of the African continent, we have elephants, lions, leopards, rhino, giraffe, buffalo and even the odd kangaroo in a game farm……


Having lived almost my entire life in the forgotten part of South Africa, I have come to realize just how privileged I am.  Wide open spaces, unpolluted rivers, the ocean and the Big 5 are all on my doorstep and we do not even have to worry about malaria, or even cholera courtesy of Zimbabwe.


Despite the problems facing South Africa, it still rates as one of the best places on planet earth.
