In June, my parents and aunt took a trip to Africa and visited Egypt, Tanzania, South Africa, Zambia, and Botswana. While I couldn’t take five weeks of vacation, I met up with them in Cape Town, Livingstone, and Chobe National Park.
Cape Town: I really enjoyed the delicious and affordable food in Cape Town. We went on a winery tour together through Stellenbosch. Though, by the end of it, every sample tasted the same. In the process, we discovered that South African Pinotage is a new family favourite! On another day, we visited Table Mountain and wandered around. I’d love to go back one day and hike to the top. Cape Town has lots of food and craft markets, so I spent a full day alternating between eating and shopping.
Livingstone: I was skeptical about how Victoria Falls would be. But, it lives up to the hype. The falls were beautiful and there were lots of walking trails where you’d get sprayed by the water – really nice on a warm day!
