If you are looking to do some serious travelling – without even leaving home, then you may want to follow the #TrekSouthAfrica journey.
Six South Africans have embarked on a six-month adventure throughout South Africa, exploring the country’s leading wilderness trails and hiking paths, in a bid to inspire people from all over the world to experience Mzansi’s best attractions.
Dubbed the #TrekSouthAfrica project, the team will travel through all nine provinces, exploring 21 South African National Parks, 18 nature reserves and eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 180 days.
Sam Chevallier – game ranger, environmentalist and leader of the #TrekSouthAfrica project, hopes that by sharing their travel experiences, it will encourage more international travellers to make South Africa their chosen holiday destination.
“South Africa is known as the third most biologically diverse ecosystem in the world, there is also a rich diversity of languages and cultures. A large portion of the country’s economy is based within tourism, with the majority of wildlife dependant on it – so through documenting our travels we hope to inspire people to experience South Africa.”
Here’s a little teaser video to win your interest.
