And if the rolling hills in wine country weren’t enough to steal my heart, Cape Town absolutely sealed the deal.

In some ways it was an Afrikaans-language alternative to the largely English-speaking Boy Scout movement, with its British heritage. The original concept of a youth movement amongst Afrikaners was formulated by Dr. C.F. Visser in 1913 in Bloemfontein.
