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 om herinneringe terug te bring van 'n drie weke lange toer van Suid-Afrika.  Ons het in Johannesburg begin en na 'n kort oriŽntasie toer van die stad ons het na Pretoria gegaan.  Daarvandaan ons het na Pelgrims Rest en Hazyview voortgegaan, Ons het drie nagte in Mala Mala gebly waar ons het al die groot vyf gesien - leeus, luiperds, renosters, olifante en buffels sowel as jagluiperds en ander diere. Ons het 'n kort toer deur die Nasionale Krugerwildtuin gemaak, voordat verder na Swaziland gegaan en daarvandaan na Durban. Toe het ons na Port Elizabeth geflieg en die Tuinroete geneem om deur die Outeniquaberge na ons eindbestemming in Kaapstad te ry.
