Can’t wait to #MeetSouthAfrica

This week sees me heading to South Africa! Woohoo! I’m really excited about this trip as I’ll be joining 15 other international travel bloggers on what is touted as the biggest travel blogger trip in African history! The bloggers will be split into four groups, each exploring a different part of the country, and we’ll all meet in Durban next week for a travel blogger day on the sidelines of INDABA, Africa’s largest travel trade fair. This trip, #MeetSouthAfrica, is a collaboration between iambassador and South Africa Tourism. Who can say no to arguably one of the coolest invitations I’ve ever received?

South Africa certainly holds a special place in my heart – each of my previous trips always felt like a homecoming. I simply love the incredible warmth and hospitality of South Africans, the mouthwatering food and wines and oh, not to mention some of the most breathtaking scenery anywhere in the world!

Then it was my turn!

Me cooking up a storm when I was in Cape Town last year! 🙂

My itinerary kicks off in Johannesburg and includes a bicycle tour of Soweto, a game drive in Pilanesberg Game Reserve north of Johannesburg, a visit to the artisans village of Clarens and drives around the stunning Drakensberg mountains. It’s a part of South Africa I’ve never been to before but I’m sure it’s going to be phenomenal!

Follow me and the other bloggers as we explore South Africa via the hashtag #MeetSouthAfrica. Can’t wait! 🙂

Note: this trip is sponsored by South Africa Tourism and its partners. Views expressed during this trip are mine, and mine only.

    My uncle lived in South Africa for years and he keeps telling me that it is the best place on the planet to enjoy life. I hope to get there soon and find out for myself

    Just finishing up a 5 week tour of SA… And feel I have only scratched the surface. Places I’d like to see again include Durban and East London. The beach at Cintsa was really gorgeous and the view from the Buccaneers was great. I also wish I had seen a lion at Kruger but we did see a leapord so it kinda balances out.
