"We're moving to South Africa!"
"Really? Cool! … uh. But, Why South Africa??!"
For many friends, colleagues, and family members, most who live in North America and Europe, South Africa seems an odd choice. It's far away, a terribly (read: "too") exotic destination, and is often cited in studies for its crime statistics.
"Why South Africa" for us is simple
Magnificent landscapes and wilderness that take our breath away.
So many rich cultures and ways to discover and understand.
Abundant wildlife that I had dreamed of seeing in their natural environment.
Incomparable South African hospitality.
Ancient, fascinating histories.
Foot-stompin', hip-wagglin' music that you just gotta get up and dance to.
The climate. Short winters = happy Corinne.
Sounds never before experienced: The scream of the baboon, the "Ha-de-da" of the ibis.
South Africa offers so many elements for an adventure in discovering the extraordinary, the challenging, and all that's possible.
And these are just a few of our reasons "Why South Africa."
