Autumn is a perfect time of year to visit the bustling city that is Johannesburg, from about March all through till May the crowds start to disappear and the weather is relatively warm and dry with the regular rain of summer gone. It’s the perfect weather for exploring the city whether inside or outside.
Jozi is the financial and industrial capital of South Africa thanks to its rich gold mining history, but it is also the perfect destination to learn about South Africa’s complex history having been a crucial spot for many of the events that shaped South Africa. So for the history lovers out there here are just a few spots where you can immerse yourself in South Africa’s past.
It’s in Johannesburg. It borders the city’s mining belt. It’s known to be notorious but its home Nobel Peace Prize winners – Archbishop Desmond Tutu and late Nelson Mandela.
Maboneng Precinct – This means the “Place of Light” Former Crime Hot Spot and now it this privately developed urban neighbourhood in the east side of Johannesburg. Its home to several independent retail designers, restaurants, hang out spots, apartments, offices and museums.
Phalaborwa is a town located in Limpopo Province, South Africa. It is halfway along the eastern border of the Kruger National park in Lowveld and is also known as the Valley of the Olifants and the town with two summers.
Last week we ended off our 620km drive from the Kruger to the Drakensberg – a place that, as previously said, translates into “Dragon Mountains” and we certainly discovered just why they call it that. Staying at Amphitheatre Backpackers is an excellent option for those looking for budget accommodation, should thoughts of smelly people drinking and the “backpacking” name deter you fear not, Amphitheatre is actually a five star accommodation and our private room was clean, comfortable and had all the amenities of a hotel with the exception of the incredible view – something no hotel could offer. We loved it.
South Africa, if you haven’t yet heard, is a country of immense natural beauty, we are blessed by an abundance of diversity not only in seen in the ever changing landscapes but also in culture and ethnicity too. This truly is the rainbow nation and as a testament to our appreciation my wife and I have decided to take a break from international travel and focus on the land that lies before our eyes. For one month and with the backing of several partners including Around About Cars we are embarking on the journey of a lifetime that starts and ends in Cape Town.
With the first leg of our “roadtrippin” journey almost over and our time in the Kruger National Park coming to an end we knuckled down to plan our route to our next destination which was the indomitable Drakensberg! For those of you who don’t speak Afrikaans it translates into the Dragons Mountains.
