Since we now are back home in Sweden, it’s time to summarize our trip to southern Africa!
All in all, we’ve spent over 2800 km on the road in our rental cars. As the roads in South Africa mostly is at a very good standard it's a pleasure to drive there, and with an automatic transmission it’s easy to focus on the left hand side traffic. The roads in Lesotho are more often in worse condition and some of the gravel roads are more like a ditch than a road. With a good 4x4 this doesn’t possess a problem, it on the contrary rather fun to drive! In Swaziland the roads were something in between South African and Lesothian standards.
Just like our entry to Lesotho and Swaziland, we were accompanied by a thunderstorm. So, think we from now on can establish that it is a tradition when we're visiting a new country!
This cable slide adventure took place in Malolotja nature reserve. It was a fantastic feeling to slide from one platform to another. They had 11 elevated forest platforms and 10 different slides. It's almost like flying in a tropical forest high up in the valley! The tour also contains a 50 meter long suspension bridge over the Majolomba river. It took us about 1 hour to do all 10 slides. The views are unforgettable and we want to do it again!
Yesterday we drove by car from Maseru in Lesotho to Maguga Dam in Swaziland. It took about 9,5 hours including stops along the road.
Our entry to Swaziland was accompanied by a thunderstorm, just as our entry to Lesotho was. Maybe a new tradition to see every new country in thunder and lightning?
