    Garden Route National Park: Tsitsikamma

    Tsitsikamma is located in one of the most stunning parts of South Africa called the Garden Route. It’s a mountainous region where rivers have carved their path to the Indian Ocean and home to fynbos vegetation. A place I can call a favorite because it left me awestruck just like many parts of South Africa.   GETTING THERE By car The best and most flexible option is to drive. I originally started my journey to Garden Route from Cape Town and Tsitsikamma was my last stop before returning back. There is a toll booth to enter this side of the Garden Route. The toll is R50 ($3). If you’re driving…

    Best Things To See In Yellowstone National Park

    At Yellowstone National Park, you’ll see a lot of wildlife, hot springs, geysers, waterfalls, and wonderful scenery. It has the world’s highest concentration of hydrothermal features. It’s also huge so bare that in mind as you plan your trip to Yellowstone. The park crosses over into Montana and Idaho and can take a few hours to drive from one end to another. Spending two full days is how long I spent but know that is not enough to truly admire its beauty and what it has to offer. One cool fact is before Yellowstone became a national park, it was once where Native Americans used to live seasonally. It was…

    Hikes in Zion National Park

    The red cliffs of Zion National Park is majestic! It’s my favorite place in all of Utah. I went here twice and I was just as amazed by its beauty the first time. It’s 2 to 3 hours drive from Las Vegas. A park great for canyoneering (also known as canyoning), which is navigating a canyon by hiking, swimming, abseiling, cliff jumping, and/or climbing. My first experience of this was a guided experience at Blue Mountains in Australia.   GETTING THERE If you need to fly, the nearest major airport to Zion is McCarran International Airport (LAS) in Las Vegas. Other nearby major airports are in Salt Lake City (SLC)…

    Best Places To Visit in Cape Town

    Cape Town is said to be one of the world’s beautiful cities and it truly is. I’ve been there twice and can’t wait to visit again! I have a thing for cities with quick access to mountains and beaches. Rio De Janeiro is another similar city that I like. If you’re trying to figure out when to visit, summer time in Cape Town is November through February with average temperatures of 73 °F (23 °C). May through August is winter time with average temperatures of 55 °F (13 °C). I haven’t been to all the tourist attractions but below are some of them. Some of these places will be better…

    What To Do In Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

    Victoria Falls is known for its huge waterfall. It is considered to be the largest falls in the world. The town is near the border of Botswana and Zambia. Zimbabwe is one of the countries right above South Africa. Just to give you a little bit of historical background, Zimbabwe was colonized by the British. After receiving their independence from Great Britain in 1980, they were governed by prime minister Robert Mugabe until his forced resignation in 2017. So Zimbabweans have had decades of struggle. If you love adventurous activities or wild animals, Victoria Falls is the place for you.   THINGS TO DO IN VICTORIA FALLS Bungee Jump The…
