The South Africa archives contain all of my images from the diverse and fascinating rainbow nation.
Whilst I was always tempted to visit this country, this didn't happen before 2006. And the reason for going there was not a vacation trip. I relocated together with the entire family to take over a new role in a multinational company.
Thankfully, apart from working we had lots of opportunites to explore most South African provinces. Instead of flying home for three weeks like many expats do, we spent most of our holidays on the Southern tip of Africa.
Being based in Pretoria, Gauteng province was our home for more than 6 years. Day-trips and weekend excursions from there included Johannesburg, Soweto, Magaliesberg, Sun City and Hartbeesport.
On longer trips, we visited Durban area, the Wild Coast, Garden Route, Cape Town and the Winelands, Augrabies National Park and of course Krugerpark etc. I will continue to upload more images of these memorable safaris here over time.
For someone who loves nature and wildlife, and is passionate about photography, South Africa is probably one of the best places to go! And - despite of all the negative news related to poverty and crime - we met incredibly friendly and professional people of all kinds of different backgrounds.
Since all good things come to an end, December 2012 marked the end of our time in this amazing country. From there, we moved on to Taiwan (also here on this webpage). I have returned a few times to South Africa since then, both on business and leisure trips. And looking at my photo collection, I believe I need to go back soon...
