South Africa and Swaziland, 2011


Best of South Africa  - Beste van Suid-Afrika


The aim of these pages is to recall memories of a three week tour of South Africa which started in Johannesburg.  After a brief orientation tour of the city we proceed to Pretoria before going on to Pilgrims Rest and Hazyview and from there on for two nights at Mala Mala where we see all of the big five - lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo - as well as cheetah and other animals.  Making a brief tour through the Kruger National Park we head for Swaziland and from there to Durban from where we fly to Port Elizabeth.  We then take the Garden Route and drive through the Outeniqua Mountains to reach our final destination in Cape Town.

Die doel van hierdie bladsye is herinneringe van'n drie weke lange toer van Suid-Afrika, wat in Johannesburg het begin. Na 'n kort oriŽntasie toer van die stad ons gaan na Pretoria voordat ons na Pelgrimsrus en Hazyview gegaan, en van daar af vir twee nagte by Mala Mala waar ons sien al die groot vyf - leeus, luiperds, renosters, olifante en buffels sowel as jagluiperds en ander diere. Ons maak 'n kort toer deur die Kruger Nasionale Park nog voor ons reis na Swaziland en van daar na Durban. Daan vlieg ons na Port Elizabeth. Ons neem dan die Tuinroete en reis deur die Outeniquaberge na ons eindbestemming in Kaapstad.
