The return to South Africa

A travel blog entry by liammichelle


Upon our return to South Africa we found ourselves on our own again, this time in Durban.

After soaking up the summer heat on the beach for a couple days it was time to see more of South Africa with a traditional safari trip at Tala Private Game Reserve.
