​Jumping off a stadium and a Cape Town Instawalk with #MeetSouthAfrica

Our second-last day of #MeetSouthAfrica saw our bloggers make their way to Durban after enjoying epic sunrises and a Cape Town instawalk in the Bo-Kaap district of the city.

Our second-last day of the #MeetSouthAfrica started with an early Instawalk in Cape Town for our adventure group of bloggers, while a beautiful Plettenberg Bay sunrise got our luxury team up early.

The second of our public Instawalks took place yesterday in Bo-Kaap in Cape Town, a tour through the historic area offering our bloggers an opportunity rich for colourful and interesting photos. Joined by a few members of the public, the walk wound through the district and even involved a visit to the oldest mosque in the southern hemisphere, Auwal Masjid. After a lunch at Haas Coffee, our adventure team hit the airport on their way to join the rest of the blogger crew in Durban.

Our luxury group of bloggers woke up to a beautiful Plettenberg Bay sunrise from the balconies of their rooms at The Plettenberg Hotel. After a fresh, delicious breakfast, the team made their move to the airport to join the crew in Durban ahead of INDABA 2014, starting on 10 May 2014.

Our heritage & culture team said their goodbyes to Bloemfontein early in the morning, arriving in Durban in time to enjoy the Big Rush swing from the Moses Mabhida Stadium and a cable car tour to the viewing platform above the stadium’s arches.
