When asked where do you see yourself traveling next for any period of time, Cape Town, South Africa is the first place that pops into my head and out of my mouth. There’s something about this place that I’ve seen in the pictures and imagined in my head that I just can’t wait to experience for myself.
While I love me some adventure, the one thing I haven’t had the need to experience is Cage Diving. Those of you out there that have, I tip my hat to you. It’s all you! Ha. The closest I have the need to get to Jaws is watching it in the movies. Folks say, “But you’re in a cage,” and to that I say, “I am but the hose isn’t”. So remember the story where I told you that staying away from adventures that involve animals with seriously large teeth? Yep, this is that. But if you decide to try it, here’s a few spots you can go fulfill your dream so I can live vicariously through you. It’s about $120 USD per person and www.SharkWatchUSA.com will take good care of you!
Now, the things that intrigue me and that are calling me about this place are the sunsets, the beaches, and most definitely the people. While there, I know there’s a couple of areas that I absolutely have to go see. The first has to do with traveling up north to see Victoria Falls. Victoria Falls is located in Zimbabwe which sits in southern part of Africa as well.
The second of which has to do with watching The Great Migration. This is one of the Seven New Wonders of the World where the wildebeest migrate from Tanzania up into Kenya to the greener pastures. This event takes place from July to October. The migration is located in the southern/middle of Africa.
One that has never been to this foreign land probably have the perception that Africa is the Lion King on crack. Animals, deserts, people that live very poorly and are always on the verge of nakedness. Some may have seen the tribes where the women extend their necks or places the disk in their lip and watch it grow over time. I may just discuss all the traditional, indigenous people a little later, but for now, know that is only part of the culture. In my next post, I’ll tell you about the craziness that revolved around my trip to Africa. For this one, just know, that the lands of Africa are so diverse, consisting of anywhere from the seriously hot desert of the Sahara to the green lush mountains in the midlands.
I cannot wait to pull up a plush beach chair on the veranda of the house I’m renting that has a view of crashing waves and a moon about 10 sizes too big.
Thanks all for dropping by. There’s more to come, so stay tuned 🙂
