One of the advantages of my job is that it gives me the freedom to explore my beautiful country. I can work from anywhere as long as there is internet access.

South Africa:

South Africa, found at the Southern tip of Africa, is a diverse and beautiful country. South Africa’s first democratic elections were held in 1994. Approximately 12 million tourists visit South Africa yearly.

Some fun facts about South Africa:

  • South Africa is the only country in the world to have hosted the Rugby, Cricket and Soccer World Cups
  • South Africa has deserts, wetlands, grasslands, bush, subtropical forests, mountains, and escarpments.
  • South Africa has eleven official languages
  • South Africa is home to the oldest meteor crater in the world. The Vredefort Dome in a town called Parys is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • South Africa has three capital cities: Pretoria is the Executive Capital, Cape Town the Legislative Capital and Bloemfontein the judicial Capital.
  • South Africa is the second largest producer of fruit
  • South Africa converts coal to oil which in turn is used to create petroleum, amongst other products.

Having recently moved back to South Africa after a few years in Europe and the Middle East I’ve been doing some exploring. I’ll be visiting Marloth Park and surrounding areas from the 1st to the 5th of April.

Marloth Park:

Marloth Park is found on the banks of the Crocodile River and is a wildlife sanctuary and holiday town. It boasts four of the “Big Five” with the exception of elephant. Buffalo, rhino and lion are confined to Marloth’s game reserve “Lionspruit”. The rest of the game such as kudu, zebra, giraffe, blue wildebeest, nyala, impala, warthog, ostrich, and others aren’t restricted by fences and roam freely between the housing units.

The Crocodile River is one of the few rivers in South Africa where Tiger Fish can be found. Tiger Fish are known as a good fighting fish with large teeth.

        • Hi Stephanie

          She was on the road and we followed her for about a kilometer. Once she thought we were close enough to her, she politely moved off the road to let us pass.

          It really is an honor living in such a beautiful country.
