Well, we've just about come to the end of our backpacking experience on the Baz Bus, so while I wait for it to pick us up one last time and take us to Capetown, I thought I'd take advantage of the free wireless. Wilderness is a great beachy resort ... Read more >

On a lighter note than yesterday, Michelle and I couldn’t find Mandla so we couldn’t go back to Soweto, so instead we decided to go to the Lion Park outside Johannesburg.   Lots of lions, hyenas, cheetahs, giraffes, antelopes, wildebeest, zebras, ... Read more >
