Explore South Africa
When one of my best friends announced he’d be having his wedding in Cape Town my wheels started turning…
What started as a simple destination wedding became an epic month-long road trip from Kruger to Cape Town. In 30 days we visited game parks, rugged coastlines, and The Mother City.
We were in love with South Africa.
Since that trip, we were lucky to return to dive deeper into Kwa-Zulu Natal, an area that intrigued us on our first trip.
We’re not done yet, South Africa has fully won me over. I have so many destinations left on my wishlist and will return as often as Latam offers me a good flight deal!
