My favorite places in South Africa.

Jen From Africa
Some of my earliest childhood travel memories are of visits to spectacular places on the Panorama Route in Mpumalanga. Here we swam in icy pools and picnicked next to waterfalls cascading down from ochre-red cliffs high above us. And we tiptoed along the edge of sunburnt cliffs where breath-taking views stretch to a little past forever, and the massive drop below leaves you weak at the knees. #postcardsfromtheroad #panoramaroute #mympumalanga

Morning coffee with a side order of cheetahs? Steam rises off my coffee cup warming my chilly face. I lean against the front of the safari vehicle peering through the steam at zebra and wildebeest grazing the winter grass on the plains in front of us. And then, about 100 meters away, a cheetah steps out of the bush. He notices us and pauses with one paw in the air… Cape Town South Africa, East Africa, North Africa, Strange Places, Cheetahs, Game Reserve, Africa Travel, Travel Inspiration, Safari

The road into Golden Gate Highlands National Park winds below towering yellow ochre and orange sandstone cliffs. But when we turn off, they are soon replaced by wide-open grasslands as we travel high up into the Maluti Mountains towards our accommodation at Highlands Mountain Retreat.

We stop next to an intriguing wooden walkway that disappears into the tree canopy. A lazy wisp of smoke curls into the air behind the trees, the only sign that this might be the entrance to Black Leopard Mountain Lodge. The air has that post-rain, fresh and earthy smell tinged with a touch of wood-smoke and from the cliffs, a baboon barks a welcome. #MeetSouthAfrica #BlackLeopardMountainLodge #Mpumalanga Tanzania, Kenya, Tree Canopy, Baboon, Africa Travel, Walkway, Garden Bridge, Uganda, Earthy

Limpopo Forest Tented Camp

In the green season, the unfenced Limpopo Forest Tented Camp in Mapungubwe National Park is a delight! Eight spacious self-catering, safari-style tents with private bomas, nestle in pairs at the base of four large Nyala trees surrounded by a sea of grass so green that it hurts your eyes. And in the middle of the camp, the welcoming azure blue of the fenced swimming pool. Sometimes, it is all about the destination! #LimpopoForestTentedCamp #MapungubweNationalPark

Marakele National Park

Marakele means "place of sanctuary" in Tswana. Marakele National Park is a South African bush getaway a couple of hours drive from Johannesburg that is off the beaten track, and the grid. Stay in one of twelve self-catering safari-style tents overlooking a dam and wait for the Big 5 to come to you or explore... it's your choice. #MarakeleNationalPark #SouthAfrica

A guide to exploring Mapungubwe National Park in South Africa.   The haunting cry of a fish eagle breaks the early morning silence over the confluence of the Limpopo and Shashe Rivers in the Mapungubwe National Park, a SANParks property tucked away in a far north-western corner of South Africa.  Satisfied that all is well it settles on a baobab tree that stands guard over the confluence.
