Traveling to the rainbow nation really surprised me. South Africa is incredibly diverse. Friendly people and stunning landscapes inspire some powerful photography.
South Africa’s landscapes are as varied as its famous wildlife. Local South Africans are generally friendly and welcoming, while modern cities like Cape Town balance out more rural areas like St. Lucia.
Below you’ll discover my favorite photos after 2 months traveling through different parts of South Africa.
Marvel at exotic wild animals on safari, fly over the coast in a microlight, or learn your fortune from an indigenous medicine woman.
Cook home-made bread over an open fire with new friends, wander through luscious green vineyards, inhale aromatic spices at an Indian market, hunt for shooting stars deep in the bush, and share lunch with locals in a township.
These are just a few experiences you can have in South Africa. Enjoy!

Useful Notes: South Africa has great weather most of the year, however there’s less rain in the winter (June – August) which is a good time for viewing animals on safari as they flock to watering holes.
