This was my third South African revisit though it felt like my first. You would consider that for a third trip, a law of abating earnings would set in. It didn’t. And so this outing to knowledge a rainbow republic for 6 days valid unforgettable.

Tuesday dusk was hold down in Johannesburg, South Africa’s biggest city. It was cold. But not a kind that expostulate we in hunt of heat. It was a indifference that was as pleasing as summer.

The expostulate to a North West range was an publicity of correct highway construction. We kind off glided on a highway for dual hours. we would nap off a few times as we prepared these dual large eyes of cave to soak in Sun city.

You might never be sufficient prepared for a Sun City experience. One thing seemed certain – highlight doesn’t live there. The ambiance projected a place best described by that word in Lion King ‘Hakuna Matta’ ‘it means no worry’.

The place was organized like an Ochestra and as song relaxes, Sun City melts stress. we kept revelation myself that this is a place we could live forever.

It was easy to consider this approach when we arise adult on a comfortable 5 star bed during a Cascades Hotel. The hotel’s name was not an capricious preference of a nice-sounding word.

It was called Cascades since approbation – it is full of cascades – This was synthetic Boti falls not in one place, though several places and nominal by pleasant gardens, we breathed a smell of flowers and a smell of purify water.

On my initial morning, was during a pretentious stately house that had it not been for a dynamic archeologist would have been buried in a dustbin of story or stranded in books.

I explored a jungle of a Palace of a Lost City, what is simply one of Southern Africa’s biggest architectural achievements.

My third day took me out for a initial genuine adventure.  Bicycles have never been my thing. And for many girls a not. My one time on a motorbike is usually a childhood memory and i sat on a behind holding a roving a relative.

So when we were told we were going quad biking my meditative was oh we will lay behind a supplement and guide. But we was left to brave float an army-green savage of a motorbike as we attempted to open adult to an adventure.

In a association of some tough girls, we mastered unaided bravery to float a savage opposite sandy roads like we see in those imperishable sports shows.

After roving an synthetic savage of a machine, we got a possibility to confront a genuine savage – an elephant.

It was n a approach to Pretoria a following day, we done a initial stop during a elephant sanctuary. How tighten have we been to an elephant? Hiding behind a handle filigree in a zoo? we got a softened though dreaded opportunity. we went on a travel with an elephant and wait-for-it – Yes, we fed it. It eat out of my hand. Incredible huh?

Their ignorance and adore would warp your heart. A savage appreciating and giving behind adore is something else. Really something else.

It was during a Jacaranda in Pretoria that we saw what we would report as a purple aisle. It was nature’s possess chronicle of a travel down a aisle.

Purple trees lined adult a street, focussed over in some oddity and showering a fragarant flowers on anybody redy to indulge in a impulse down a walk.

Drivers in Pretoria seemed fervent to expostulate a traveller by a Jacaranda. And so if they were studious to expostulate me through, certainly they would be studious adequate for me to take a shot along a purple aisle.

The Freedom Park and Union Buildings have spin such an captivate for both holidaymakers and remarkably locals. The park has a outrageous statue of Mandela and it certain feels like leisure being stable by a giant. Here is a place for South Africa’s heroes.

Perhaps dual over-used difference in South Africa is gold/golden and sun. So we went to dual really patronised ‘gold’ places – a Gold Reef City. As if that bullion was not adequate there was also a ‘Golden Loop’ in a ‘Gold Reef City’ in Johannesburg.

It was a thesis park and a thing about such parks is that it opens we adult for surprises. Don’t spin your behind to a Golden Loop when we revisit a Gold Reef City in Johannesburg.

The Hartbeespoort is fundamentally most like a float on a Volta lake. But a vastily softened knowledge since of counsel investment in formulating a most some-more enchanting experience. Its a dam surrounded by plateau so a a arrange of a dam in a valley. Scores of boats manipulate a H2O physique and we got an afternoon journey during Harties as a locals call a place.

It was stirring though some knots of unhappiness in my swell as a finish of a journey noted a business finish of my debate of a ‘Rainbow nation’

But boy, we didn’t design this selected expostulate and a wire automobile float all in a day.

Later that night we would be driven in a limousine to a night of performances…live performances….huge auditorium and happy people with a common connector; Music. #MTVMAMAS2016.

And when my son gave me this list and pronounced “mummy pleeeeeese don’t forget to buy all a toys”, we knew my final day had to be spent during one of Johannesburg’s favourite malls….the Sandton Mall.

On a outing like this, a critical reward is good new friendships. The earthy break-ups are sentimental and so to make it reduction nostalgic, a selfie to constraint a moments is a must.
