A summer vacay with the stars in South Africa! #MySAExperience



I recently  joined influencers from Ghana and Nigeria for a chance to enjoy the amazing scenery, culture, adventures and thrills of the rainbow nation this Summer season in the Western Cape , Eastern Cape, and Kwazulu-Natal province of South Africa. Although it is winter in South Africa at the moment, nothing could hold us back from the memorable fun-packed trip, from the Power Boat rides on the Knysna Lagoon to the Safari ride in the Botlierskop Game Reserve!
