A road trip from Cape Town towards Johannesburg will take you through the verdant vineyards and fruit farms of the Hex River Valley. Your road leads over the Hex River Pass to the little farming town of Touws River. This is the beginning of 400,000 square kilometres of semi-desert called the Karoo. It is a sweeping landscape of wide-open spaces, occasional sheep grazing the sparse scrubland, odd windmills, spectacular sunsets and wonderfully hospitably people.
SHED THE WINTER BLUES AND JIVE TO THE VIBE ON AN ISLAND IN THE OKAVANGO DELTA.
Done your casuals, slam your battered hat on the head, grab your backpack with ‘cozzy’ and sarong and get to Maun, Botswana. From August 29th to September 1, 2019, the little island of the Tsutsubega rural community in the floodplains of the Botswana Delta Swamps, ROCKS!! Get ready to party for three days to a jam-packed program of music from local and international bands, DJ’s and singers.
The rich and famous make this home. The rest of us head down to Plettenberg Bay when we have a break because the Blue Flag beaches are the best in South Africa, in fact I would argue, the world. Crystal clear, glinting waves break onto pristine golden sands. The lure to dive into the cool refreshing water makes the experience of barefoot long beach walks just perfect!!
This trip with Mile by Mile is a visual smorgasbord. From great expansive views and beautiful little bays with crystal clear turquoise to blue seas, to crashing great navy waves backed by steep granite cliffs and towering mountains. You will be enchanted. You get up close and personal with Cape Fur Seals, African Penguins and baboons. This is a “must do” experience.
