The day and night and day that went on forever
It is true that all good things must come to an end and truly we were so ready to come home. Home is great.
But Africa is a special place, from Cape Town to Kruger and then back to Johannesburg there is something for everyone.
The food and wine is spectacular and the people are very friendly. The vibe in CapeTown is terrific and it is such a great place to visit. The diversity of culture and of things to see and do make Cape Town a great vacation destination.
Visiting the game reserve is truly an amazing experience, being in touch with nature in a way that is so rare. The fresh air, the creatures large and small, how they are interdependent and how they interact with each other is just so fascinating. It would be sad to drive around and snap photos of each animal so you could say you saw the big 5 or magnificent 7 and move on without sitting a while to observe. (The guide and tracker told us that people do that.)I will be writing about the game drives we had even though we are home so I can share these interactions and observations, it is just fascinating.
So there is that, the happy vibe of Cape Town, the adventure in the bush and then the crazy, crazy Johannesburg. We always spend a few days there to see our family. Our cousins always put themselves out in such a big way to welcome us. This time we also made some new friends, and it was interesting to hear the stories of life in Johannesburg.
There is the good and the bad. People are so warm and friendly.
