Wanderlust: South African Vacation

June 19, 2013

Our tickets are bought.

Research has begun.

Dreams of sleeping in treetops have sprouted.

Josh and I are headed to South Africa for vacation this year and we have a couple of months to plan our adventures. As much as we loved Southeast Asia and France, I am beyond excited to go to Africa and experience an amazingly new culture. We will definitely be visiting “Jo-burg” (Johannesburg) and Cape Town but I’m interested in other ideas… have you ever been? What did you do?

Here are 9 amazing things on my wish list!

    South Africa is amazing, and there are so many little places worth visiting. Definitely go for a picknick to Stellenbosch and have a walk around. The place is absolutely stunning.

    My husband and I are talking about going to South Africa in November with some friends. You should let us know how your trip went and the “to do” things while we are there.

      I’m hoping we can get to everything we want to! There is so much to do, we could spend months there!
