Planning a South Africa Road Trip
Inspired by an article in Wanderlust magazine about Kwazulu Natal, a less visited part of South Africa than the famous Kruger, we decided that it was about time we returned to Africa, a continent we hadn’t visited since our time in Sierra Leone 12 years ago.
Salar de Uyuni – Day Four
We get up at 5.00 am and leave the Salt Hotel to drive out on to the salt flats just as the night sky, almost imperceptibly, starts to change colour.
Salar de Uyuni – Day Three
After another very cold night ( -18c) another early start as we head off to the Piedra de Arbol a “forest” of stone carved into some impossible shapes by the desert wind and ice.
Salar de Uyuni – Day Two
We wake early, partly because of the cold and the altitude but mainly because at 5.30am, some lunatic started playing Amazing Grace over the village public address system!
Argentina Roadtrip – Cachi
After a leisurely breakfast in the local panaderia we leave Chicoana and head off to Cachi. Although much shorter than yesterday’s, this drive was even more scenic.
