Hello all, a friend and I have a plan to travel to South Africa. We are still looking for a TripMate (age between 20 and 30) who would possibly join the trip and also likes to travel and get to know new cultures and cities. First port of call would be a flight from probably Frankfurt to Johannesburg, where we will take a car to drive towards Kruger National Park. But we can also just meet on site. Here we will spend about 5 days and can book different safaris on site to observe the wildlife by day or night. There is also the possibility to drive through the Kruger National Park by ourselves. We will continue on 26.10 where we will again drive to the airport in Johannesburg to catch a flight to Cape Town. Once we arrive in Cape Town we will again have a rental car to drive to our accommodation. In Cape Town there are many possibilities in the city as well as outside the city like Boulders Beach or the surrounding beaches, wine tours or even climbing Table Mountain and other activities. On the trip we will see beautiful landscapes and breathtaking wildlife. We are both very young 29/27 and like to go in the evening one or the other beer or cold drink in a bar to us. I myself am an ambitious hobby photographer and can provide all shot pictures during the tour for free. So you do not have to worry about beautiful vacation photos or drone shots ;) Enclosed still the possibilities from Johannesburg at the Kruger National Park: Pridelands is home to the Big 5, cheetahs and wild dogs as it is part of the Greater Kruger National Park. Evening or early morning game drives in open safari vehicles can be booked. The guides here will provide advanced knowledge and know the best places to spot the animals. Pridelands borders the Kruger National Park and is known for its excellent game viewing. This habitat is also home to abundant birdlife. The splendor of the third largest canyon in the world can also be explored: Due to its lush subtropical vegetation, it is undoubtedly the largest "green canyon". A guided tour by a tour guide can take us to the rare living Kadishi Tufa Waterfall and the Three Rondawels. An abundance of wildlife is native to this area and can be spotted. Probably the most beautiful view in the entire Blyde River Canyon can be had at the "Three Rondawels", huge round rocks that are said to be reminiscent of the aboriginal houses or huts called rondawels. **What is included on this trip**: -Rental car (excluding gasoline and other costs such as tolls or parking fees). -flight from Johannesburg to Cape Town -Accommodation Cape Town single and double rooms -Lodges near Kruger National Park as single room if available **What is not included on this tour**: -Alcoholic beverages and other drinks -Flight from Frankfurt to Johannesburg (approx. 800-900 euro with luggage) -Day or night safaris (10h safari approx. 100 euro per person) -fuel costs for the rental car (should not be too much) -Souvenirs, laundry service, tips, optional activities -lunches and dinners We are looking forward to seeing you!

Hello all I'm looking for like-minded people who also like to take pictures and capture the beauty of nature. I'm adventurous and like to travel to different countries and cultures. Currently, I am very attracted to the Nordic countries by the beauty and serenity of nature in the spell. However, I also like to travel to warm and better weather countries :D

Boulders Beach

Day 11-12
Visiting the legendary Boulders Beach and the penguins and surroundings. On the Cape Peninsula, south of Cape Town, located directly on False Bay, is Boulders Beach. Translated, Boulders Beach means the beach with the boulders. The translation does little justice to the beach, which is well worth seeing. Boulders Beach and the adjacent town of Simon's Town are famous in South Africa for penguins and the naval base. And the immediate surroundings also have a lot to offer. Table Mountain National Park, Cape of Good Hope, Cape Point, False Bay - around Boulders Beach, the Cape Peninsula has many interesting spots that you should definitely explore.

Camps Bay

Day 13-14
Beach and sightseeing in the surrounding area Camp Bay in Camps Bay, beautifully situated just below the 12 Apostles, restaurants and stores line the waterfront promenade, and the large beach bay is the largest of those close to the city. With its palm tree promenade, white sandy beach and majestic mountains in the background, Camps Bay has quickly become one of the most popular vacation destinations in the Cape Town region. On Victoria Road, in Camps Bay you will find one restaurant next to another. Camps Bay, with its large sandy beach, is a seaside resort, party place and trendsetter at the same time. This is where young people in particular come to sunbathe, play beach volleyball or jog along the water. After sunset, half of Cape Town seems to meet for "cruising" with flashing cars.
