Amazing TR!  You weren't nervous to rent a car with all the crime there (in case you got lost or had an accident, etc)?  I have family and friends form SA and never had a desire to go because of the poverty and horror stories but your making me consider a second look...the animal pics are amazing.

Thanks! Like I'd been told before we went, of you avoid the bad neighborhoods in Joburg you're fine. I didn't feel uncomfortable renting a car there, and it's also hard to find the bad areas if you're staying in the Jewish area. In Cape Town it's a lot more relaxed and safer, at least it feels that way.

Great report! Makes me want to go to South Africa even more. Seems like you really got to see a decent amount of wildlife.

Thanks for the write up.

Awesome report, such great memories of one of my most memorable trips. Though mine was in the back of the bus at the Etihad glitch.

Cameras don't take pictures, photographers do. Cameras are just another artist's tool.

Great pics  :)
