In my series for Exploring South Africa
The summer break is over and I’m back to write on my blog again. I hope you are still here and keep following this blog in the future.
We were in South Africa for 3 weeks , touring through the country, met relatives and friends of my girl friend and got to know the culture and the Multi-faceted landscape and wildlife.
There were 3 absolutely wonderful weeks that I do not want to miss. The first week we were in Cape Town, a stunning city, no wonder that many people rave about Cape Town. Beaches on one side and surrounded by mountains and forests on the other side. I must say the people were very nice and friendly. I have only positive impressions of the country and its people. Even with the crime we didn’t have any experience, fortunately. We saw a lot of security staff, whether in parking lots, shops or roads. I think South Africa wants to convey a sense of security so that the general impression that South Africa would be too dangerous for a vacation, no longer corresponds to the truth. Of course there are still very dangerous places, especially at night and you should always be a little cautious, but if you’re not too stupid and careless, then nothing should happen, and South Africa is not more dangerous than other countries and cities.
As I said, the first week we were in Cape Town, Gretel’s hometown, where we visit her grandmother, godparents and friends. We saw quite a bit of Cape Town, we were on Robben Island, Cape Point, Boulders Beach, Waterfront and, no, not on the table mountain. We didn’t have the chance to go on the top, but that is another reason to come back again, and that’s for sure, but next time in the summer. I’m already looking forward to it! Then I can make a comparison of South Africa before and after the World Cup.
I hope you will like the photos of the first week in Cape Town. Soon I will put the photos of the Garden Route and the last great week in Kruger National Park with wild animals online. Enjoy!
