Hey everyone! Matt here from @ExpertVagabond and I’m counting down my top “Big 5” experiences in South Africa. #1: SWIMMING WITH SHARKS Despite all the bad press they get, sharks are pretty awesome creatures. This is Protea Banks, south of Durban. Home to Tiger Sharks, Bull Sharks, Blacktips, and more. One of the best places in the world to go scuba diving with them, no cage required. Who wants a shark selfie now? ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ #VisitSouthAfrica #MeetSouthAfrica #SouthAfrica

Hey everyone! Matt here from @ExpertVagabond and I’m counting down my top “Big 5” experiences in South Africa. #2: MEETING PEOPLE IN SOWETO Soweto is a melting pot of South African cultures, home to almost 1 million people. It was fascinating to learn about its history and meet with residents. The area is a curious mixture of both shanty towns and luxurious mansions. This is Pretty. That’s her name! Even though Johannesburg is next door, Soweto has its very own fashion & music scenes. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ #VisitSouthAfrica #MeetSouthAfrica #SouthAfrica
