After two weeks in Zambia, ending with watching the sunrise over beautiful Lake Tanganyika (see previous post), Mathieu and I crossed the border into Tanzania!
After swimming with bats at a spring-fed waterfall (see previous post), Mathieu and I continued north to explore Namibia’s Kunene Region where we hoped to meet Himba and Herero people, see more amazing wildlife, and explore more beautiful scenery.
After a wonderful week exploring Cape Town area with Mathieu’s mom, Marie (see previous post), Mathieu and I were called back for a last hike overlooking the Atlantic Ocean before heading north (or so we thought).
After about three weeks of meandering down the eastern coast of South Africa (see previous post), Mathieu and I arrived to the port city of Cape Town, also referred to as the Mother City as it’s the oldest city in South Africa.
We were joined in the Mother City by Mathieu’s mom, Marie, who flew out from Paris. We were very excited to explore the area with her. And, she brought us an array of beautiful, fun, delicious gifts. Yeah! While Marie was ready to camp and rough it, as she’d done when she joined us on our roadtrip in Mexico, this time we spent a luxurious week in a hip Airbnb apartment with a lovely view of Cape Town’s iconic Table Mountain.
After nearly two weeks in the beautiful Drakensberg region of South Africa (see previous post), Mathieu and I headed to the coast. Over the next nearly 3 weeks, we meandered through the Eastern and Western Cape provinces, including the Garden Route, visiting friends and stunning places along the way.
