Adventures through South Africa

Adventures through South Africa

If you’re like me, you might be listening to Christmas music but experiencing cabin fever. No, not the kind where you travel 7 hours to a 2-room cabin in the middle of some snow covered woods – I’m talking about the kind that has you wishing for sunshine, warm breezes and of course, Summer.


I’ve always had a knack for adventure, and traveling to warm, tropical places; today I learned that I didn’t even have to get off the couch to visit one! You heard that right. If you need a little mental vacation, stay with me, because we’re going to journey to the top of Table Mountain, see elephants grazing the luscious green Earth and if you’re a good travel buddy, you might just even see a stampede of buffalo or the elusive leopard. So come along the airfare is on us!


You might have guessed it, we’re hiking throughout Africa, all with a few taps. Over the past couple of years, Google has been taking their Street View to the next level; showcasing many of South Africa’s unique experiences which are perfect for a chilly day where you need to know there’s still warmth somewhere on this beautiful planet.


Step into the Mzansi Experience where you’ll be able to walk the Golden Mile, visit sandy shores like Clifton Beach or Sunset Beach, nature reserves, botanical gardens and so much more. With so many places to see, you’ll wonder how you accomplished so much in only one day! Don’t forget to stop back and tell us: What was your favorite place and where do you hope to journey to next?


Adventure awaits my friends! Happy travels.
