Wilderness – The Man Who Lives in a Cave

We’ve seen plenty of amazing sights on this trip. We’ve had our minds blown by close encounters with wild mountain gorillas, the sheer magnitude of Victoria Falls and countless vistas. We’ve witnessed a huge range of animals out in their natural habitats, from lions and leopards to elephants, whales and dolphins. However, despite all of […]

Cango Caves and Ostrich Eggs

The Cango Caves on the outskirts of the town of Outdshoorn are situated inside a gigantic limestone ridge and are millions of years old.
