South Africa November 1990

„Are you crazy?“ was Elke’s reaction when I proposed to spend our holidays in South Africa. South Africa? Isn’t that this country with the system of apartheid and the permanent riots in the townships? That’s definitely not a place for holidays.

But it was! Of course there was the apartheid which was a strange experience. On the other hand however we were delighted by the great nature this country in the southernmost part of Africa had to offer. South Africa was not a tourist destination at all at those times. So we could enjoy such a beautiful spot like Tsitsikamm National Park (see picture on the right) nearly for us alone. Visiting this place today, that’s really hard to believe.

We rented a motorhome and drove from Cape Town to Johannesburg. The time of three weeks was of course too short, but at least we could see the main attractions. Unfortunately there is not travelogue of that trip available.
