South African Scenes

A sign at the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg
Jesse next to an anti-poaching rhino in Mandela Square. Poachers get $100,000 per tusk. Heartbreaking and disgusting!
A mama monkey and her baby
Bourke's Luck Potholes (or as we call them, a giant canyon)
Jesse and I at Bourke's Luck Potholes
Two giant mangos and an entire bag of lychees for less than $3. I love traveling to countries that have summer when we have winter!
An elephant asleep on a tree at Kruger National Park
Lions at Kruger National Park
Baby warthogs at Kruger National Park
A field of giraffe at Hluhluwe Game Reserve
Cape buffalo at Hluhluwe Game Reserve

Jesse and I at the top of Table Mountain
Baboons hanging out on the side of the road (there had to be at least 100 of them!)
The District Six Museum in Cape Town. This is on the floor. It's a map of where people's homes used to be before the government tore them all down during apartheid to make room for white people's homes, though they never built anything. The District Six area remains empty to this day.
Langa, the largest township in Cape Town
The V&A Waterfront in Cape Town
