South Africa

A colony of “jackass” penguins lives just outside Cape Town

I was surprised how much Cape Town reminded me of Vancouver — don’t miss this city by the sea if you’re in the region.

Also on your must-see list:  a day trip down to Cape Point to see where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans supposedly meet, the jackass penguins near Simon’s Town, and strolling (and eating!) your way through the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. The Victoria and Alfred Hotel is a good choice for a place to stay right on the water in Cape Town (fab breakfast buffetsP1030110 too, where I ate almost enough passionfruit to satisfy me).

A safari is also essential. All my safari tips are on the safari page. The most popular place to see game is Kruger National Park, for good reason. I loved my stay at Thornybush Game Lodge and safaris in their private reserve just on the edge of Kruger. Their staff work hard to show you both the big five and the little five.

Just off Cape Point, where people like to say the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet
