I consider the months that I spent living and working in South Africa and Botswana some of the more beautiful days of my entire life. Cape Town is such a puzzling and inspiring city and the rest of South Africa has so many stunning people and settings. Hoping to capture a few of my favorite memories from this special place. Put South Africa at the very top of your official wanderlist!

801 Cedar St, Berkeley, CA 94710, USA

Save Place
Kleintuin Rd, Simon's Town, Cape Town, 7995, South Africa
If you're spending time exploring the Cape Peninsula area of South Africa, a visit with the penguin colony at Boulders Beach is a must. They made Boulders their home (wise penguins) in 1982 and you'll be surprised by how residential the setting...
