My most recent adventure!

Hello everyone!

This is my final update from Cape Town, as I return home this weekend. 🙁 These past five months have been nothing short of amazing and while it will be great to see friends and family again just in time for the holidays, I am really going to miss this place. Cape Town has begun to feel like my home. Not to mention I am going to miss this summer time weather once I return to cold KC.

So for my final entry, let me show you some photos of my post semester travels to Durban, South Africa and to the Drakensberg mountains!

The beautiful landscape of the Drakensberg mountains! (Drakensberg is Afrikaans for dragon mountain)

This was a pretty challenging 8 hour hike up to the summit, but the views were well worth the trek!

Once we reached the top we got to see the amazing Tugela falls; at 938 meters this is the highest waterfall in Africa and the second highest in the world! It is kind of hard to tell but there is a girl in the top left corner of this photo which really puts the size of this fall into perspective.

My brother came to visit me for a couple weeks and explored the mountains with me as well.

Another good view of one of the waterfalls in the mountains.

And of course a couple of giraffes from a game drive we did. 🙂

I hope you have enjoyed hearing about my journey in South Africa as much as I have enjoyed sharing it with you.

Cheers!
