In the footsteps of Michael Palin

A travel blog entry by chrisbeek


Early start; our flight to Sydney was at 6.55am. Our South African Friends Jackie and Nev gave us a lift to the airport.

The Tour Begins

A travel blog entry by debbiemcphee


... enough to see some tiny lizards who are only active in the morning and evenings; the Lesser Doublecollared Sunbird, and the cute little Rock Dassie. The Rock Dassie resembles a small rabbit and actually is closely related to the elephant (the evolutionary relationship is based on similarities in their feet and teeth).

Table Mountain was also known as the "Beacon of Hope" to prisoners on Robben Island. Nelson Mandela was known ...
