The wineries, breweries and all the tastings were wonderful. We certainly are not lacking ...

This was interesting because earlier in the trip, I learned what the bush was and saw one of the places it happened in Langa. Every black male has to go to the bush as a rite of passage when he becomes a man. He stays in a wooded area in a hut for a few weeks. During this time he is circumcised. He is alone most of the time and only sees men when they bring him food. After a ...

Off to find our campsite we go. It’s called Otter’s Bend and it’s adorable! It’s basically a pear orchard and ...
