South Africa and Lesotho Here We Come!

For the past two months we’ve been gearing up for a month-long journey through South Africa. We’ll also be spending a few days in Lesotho, which is the most elevated country on the continent. We’ll be regularly posting Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram updates from our trip so you won’t miss out on the wildlife and amazing lodges we’ll be filming. Hopefully they’ll inspire you to visit Africa’s southernmost country someday soon.

After eight exciting days in the wild, we will then fly from Kruger back to Johannesburg to pick up our car courtesy of CarRentals.co.uk for our drive south into Lesotho. We will spend four days seeing everything the country has to offer, from the highest pub in Africa, to dinosaur foot prints. We will be staying at two lodges here: Semonkong Lodge and Maliba Lodge in order to see both areas of the country.

We are doing 4 nights for Safari and then plan to do 5 nights in cape town and 2 nights in Stellenbosch and 1 to 2 nights in Hermanus. I saw you traveled to other places such as Durban, Port Elizabeth and Lesotho. Thoughts on those? Worth going? Should we do a night in Joburg? Thanks for your help!!!!
