I'm so excited to share the news that I will be traveling in South Africa from March 17 to April 3! My friend Hanah and I are headed for a fantastic African adventure, including a four day safari, a week in Capetown, and a lindy hop dance camp!
One of the main reasons for our visit is Mother City Hop, a swing dance camp held in Capetown from March 23-26. There are classes, dances with live music, city tours and other fun activities that we'll avail ourselves of. I'm really excited about the pantsula dance workshops, a local dance form that I've been a big fan of.
Then we fly to Johannesburg for the next leg of our trip. Our safari will primarily take place in Kruger National Park, one of the top destinations for safaris in all of Africa. I'm excited to see the beautiful countryside and African animals in their native habitat.
Another wildlife adventure I'm excited about is seeing African penguins at Boulders Beach. Apparently you can actually swim with the penguins. Although we were cautioned to not get too close, because they will bite. These are the same species of penguins that we have the Cal Academy!
Going to Africa has long been on my bucket list. Can't wait!
