South Africa is more than Cape Town, the Garden Route, the Kruger National Park and the Big Five.
This photo was on the way to the Orange River, which is a natural border line to Namibia. We landed at the Uppington International Airport and then headed further West for a 5 hours drive.
The landscape was stunning and even I had to wake up very early that morning to catch the plane and I was quite tired, there was just no way to sleep and to miss that landscape. Here in this picture the landscape is still quite flat, but just a bit further and closer to Springbok, it changes and you'll see many rocky hills.
The Orange River is just outstanding and it felt like being on another planet. Find some photos in my gallery here:

Also the drive from the Orange River to Cape Town is worth doing it. Yes, it's quite long with around 8 hours, but soooo worth it! Especially the mountain range at Cederberg Wilderness Area was very impressing. Suddenly those mountains rise and desert looking landscape changes completely. There is the Olifantsriver, which water is used to irrigate the wine fields.
So if you are looking to experience something different on your journey in South Africa, add the Orange River + the drive there... Then share a photo of you chilling there! ;-)
