Table Mountain, Cape Town
I am going to start my Cape Town diary with my visit of the Table Mountain, South Africa’s most iconic landmark. I think it is safe to say that from the top of the Table Mountain one has the best and most unique view over “Mother City”.
Before showing you a visual insight into the Table Mountain I would like to share some things that might be helpful when you plan on visiting the Table Mountain.
White Lions, Volunteering in South Africa.
It’s already some time since I have told you about my first days in Hoedspruit, South Africa. (HERE you’ll find the post, in case you have missed it.)
I was participating as a volunteer on a project that is specialized on the protection and the reintroduction of the White Lions, an endangered species in the Timbavati area.

Take me on a trip, I’d like to go some day..
I really, really like road trips: the freedom of going wherever you want to, have spontaneous stops at every beautiful corner and just go with the flow without having a schedule or sometimes even without having a route planned. I think it is my favorite way of transportation (besides flying of course). 😉
Kruger National Park, South Africa.
Last week we took advantage of the fact that we are living basically next to Kruger and departed for a 2-days-trip. Before I start with a photo gallery (it was very hard to select from over 400 pictures!), I would like to share some facts and figures about Kruger and our trip.
Kruger National Park is one of the largest game reserves in Africa. In fact, it is huge. Kruger covers nearly 20,000 square kilometers, which is the same size as Wales or half of the size of Switzerland! 🙂 Geographically seen, you find Zimbabwe in the north of Kruger and Mozambique in the east.
It’s been almost a week that I took off for South Africa. Finally I got some time to share my first days with you guys. So far, I really, really like it here! For someone who is living in Europe South Africa is the perfect winter get-away destination. The opposite seasons to Europe and no need to worry about time zones and jet lag. What else could you ask for? 🙂 Here is what I’m currently doing in South Africa:
