a Travel Diary of Southern Africa

The last part of my two months journey to Southern Africa in April-May 1991, also including Zimbabwe and Namibia, was South Africa, from the Karoo in the NW via Cape Town and the Graden Route to the Drakensberg. The travel diary of the entire trip can be accessed here, the South African diary entries are included below.

the Karoo
from Upington to Clanwilliam, past the Augrabies Falls, rock engravings and corbelled houses
the Cederberg rock paintings
fabulous San rock paintings on two individual farms in the Cederberg area
Cape Town
a few days in and around Cape Town, and up Table Mountain
the Garden Route
from Stellebosch wineries to brilliant Knysna mountain scenery
the Homelands
South Africa's shameful attempt at physical segregation of the white and black populations
the Drakensberg
the spectacular scenery of the Drakensberg, and its brilliant cave galleries full of San rock paintings
