    South Africa's Top Spots - Episode 1 - Our Natural Wonders, Best Museums and Incredible Monuments

    Frequently asked questions: what are the top spots to see, or visit? Difficult to answer, so we have broken it down into several categories. In this episode we cover:
    The Top 5 Natural Wonders
    South Africa's Top 10 Museums
    The Top 5 Monuments

    South Africa is an incredible destination, and in these episodes we will cover the "Top Spots" according to Road Trip, and according to Diederik who has owned and operated Touch Africa Safaris for over 30 years. 

    The list is by no means exhaustive, and many will want to add or swap spots - and we can always add to this!

    Building the PitStops App and finding cheaper diesel - Part 1 - the PitStops app and how we started the Road Trip SA app. This time in English!

    Driving in South Africa is getting to be expensive - but you can save on diesel because garages charge different prices. The PitStops app shows you the local prices - so you save every time you fill up.

    Partnered with PitStops is Road Trip SA - a fun app with thousands of monuments, memorials, statues, museums and general POI's listed - to make your travelling more fun.

    The struggle against Apartheid lasted many years - and there are many sites around South Africa that commemorate this part of our history. There are however a few that stand out as really worthwhile places to visit in order to understand this period of our history.

    In this episode we chat about those - and then we move on to some just plain interesting, different, or plain fun sites.
