One of our favourite things about travel to South Africa was the variety. Variety of activities, variety of wildlife, variety of adventures, variety of scenery. It was a photographer’s dream to be able to take photos of such diverse scenery and experiences. South Africa has a soft spot in our hearts as it was in Cape Town that we finished the Tour d’Afrique in 2008 and solidified our desire to make travel a full time career of travel blogging. We didn’t quite know how we were going to make that happen, but after cycling the continent from Cairo to Cape Town over the course of four months, we knew that we could never go back to our old lives. Thus ThePlanetD was born. We have since been back and fell in love with the country even more. We’ve driven the magnificent Garden Route, went on safari, reached Cape Point and admired sunsets over its incomparable coastline. South Africa is one of those places that keeps drawing you back. Once you leave, you want to turn that plane around and start all over again. It’s just that good.
There’s still so much more to explore in the country and we cycled the entire West Coast and drove most of the East. But we still can’t wait to go back to travel the rest. The pictures say it all, we can’t get enough of South Africa.
