Diagonally across Diagonal Street from the diamond building in the last shot is the "KwaZulu Muti Museum of Man and Science" which isn't a museum at all but a shop crammed from floor to ceiling with products used in "Muti" which is a type of witchcraft. Selling everything you could possibly need for traditional medicine and magic, it's a really interesting and very friendly place to visit

Met this little fella at Blyde River Canyon in South Africa. Found out later he's a Sekukhune flat lizard and actually quite rare; this species of lizard is only found in a small area #lovesouthafrica

A few hours drive from Johannesburg in eastern Mpumalanga, the Drakensburg escarpment is a justifiably popular place to visit. It was the first stop on my road trip and after staying in Graskop I went to the most famous of the many viewpoints along the edge of the valley - 'God's Window'.

Sunset over the Central Drakensburg mountains at the Champagne Castle Hotel, South Africa. I cannot recommend this place highly enough - what a fantastic base for walking in the Central Drakensburg mountains, or just enjoying the peace, tranquility and great food..

And this is the view from 'God's Window' over the Drakensburg escarpment in South Africa. The sign in the previous photo is definitely worth complying with, I would not recommend anyone to "go beyond railings"...

My guidebook told me that it was impossible for a photograph to really show the scale of the Blyde River Canyon in Mpumalanga, South Africa. They were right, but this picture tells some of the story at least. One of the largest canyons on earth and easily reachable from Johannesburg, it features many viewpoints along the so-called Panorama Route. This is probably the best - looking towards the rock formation known as the "Three Rondavels" because of its similarity to traditional African…

11 Diagonal Street in central Johannesburg is an iconic skyscraper built in 1984 as an office building for Anglo American. Resembling a multi-faceted diamond, this 80-metre marvel reflects different angles of the Central Business District #lovesouthafrica

Greyton, Western Cape - South Africa. A wonderful hiking trail starts just behind the town and goes up the Riviersonderend mountain range towards McGregor.
