IIn South Africa, there’s a story at every turn.

With so many of them to see, they won’t fit on a website.

So we made a film.

Absolutely our favorite discovery in #Johannesburg was this, the Neighbourgoods Market, a communinty market with the most awesome food on all our trip around the country!

Taking a first city break in South Africa in #Johannesburg, at the lovely Four Seasons Westcliff, with stunning views over the city. 📷@robertmichaelpoole with @marcy_yu

I love how groups of animal are named, and there is none more appropriate than a dazzle of zebra! These guys certainly seemed dressed to dazzle at dusk in Madikwe! 📷 @robertmichaelpoole with @marcy_yu

Meeting the King… in Madikwe Game Reserve in NorthWest Province near the Botswana border. We found out that this region is a transition zone on the edge of the Kalahari, and is home to many rare species. 📷 @robertmichaelpoole with @marcy_yu

On the road after Kruger, we were thrilled to go hiking at the spectacular Blyde River Canyon in Mpumalanga !

Encoutering the most mellow lioness, it was as if she was taking time to admire nature’s garden around her. 📷 @robertmichaelpoole with @marcy_yu #thornybush #greaterkruger #Kruger #SouthAfrica #Africa #Travel #VisitAfrica #TravelAfrica #soulofafrica #ThisisAfrica #AfricaLove #ExploreAfrica #AfricanAmazing #natgeo #natgeotravel #cnntravel #bbctravel #travelawesome #BeautifulDestinations #bestvacations @thornybush_collection @fly_airlink

Elephants are Marcy’s favourite animal, so imagine her almost jumping out of her seat to see two herds converge together to quench their thirst! 📷 @robertmichaelpoole with @marcy_yu #MeetSouthAfrica #thornybush #greaterkruger
