Say a resounding YES to Adventure!! Written by @LizAwoliyi

I’ve been travelling to South Africa since 2015 when I was fortunate enough to be offered an all expense trip to Durban for the MTV Base “Mama Awards”….who gonna say no to that??

Not Me!

Since then, it has been a roller coaster ride, and I’ve knocked off, Capetown, Johannesburg, Petoria and what an awesome experience! I love that S.A has so much to offer in terms of experiences, you can go romantic on the beach, or get your blood pumping with speed boats and theme park ride, spend a day at some beautiful spa’s lazing around of shop till you drop! I encourage you to embrace the spirit of adventure, test yourself, push your boundaries, and laugh a lot along the way. So sit back, and enjoy a traveler’s experience.

Here are some of my favourite quotes and amazing memories built thus far in #MYSAEXPERIENCE

10: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.”— Mark Twain

Quad biking adventure around the African bush in a private game park named Letsatsing near Sun City and the Pilanesberg National Park. (Not far from J’burg) I encountered alot of wildlife, Impala, majestic giraffes, and rhino footprints but I aint never scared!! J

9: “Not all those that wander are lost.” – J.R.R. Tolkien

Soaking up the sun, not a care in the world – The beaches in Durban, South Africa are top notch.

They’ll serve you a nice hot meal with some bubbly to wash it down if you ask nicely!! J
