Nature Reserve
juki235Cape Florel is actually the southernmost point of the African continent in the true sense. In geographical coordinates, it is further south than the famous Cape of Good Hope. The scenery here is really very vast, the endless Atlantic Ocean is really open-minded, standing here is the real end of the world, it is really full of thoughts.

东张西望望东西There are not so many tourists in Cape Agulhas, but the scenery is not inferior to other scenic spots. The iconic building here is the white lighthouse. Although this lighthouse is not very magnificent, it still looks beautiful with the sea view

丰色琳Get close to nature and have zero-distance contact with wild animals-Bontebok National Park In South Africa, we passed through many natural parks, large and small. This time we came to a beautiful nature reserve-Bontebok national park in Swellendam town. We found the reception of this park along the signs on the road. Each person paid 100ZAR (admission). The people at the reception enthusiastically told us the route and also told us about the history of this park! And you can rent binoculars here, trust me! Must have a telescope! We followed the instructions and entered this park. The park is older than I thought, very close to nature without any modification! I saw a lot of wild animals (this is the unique charm of South Africa, you can see countless wild animals), antelopes and zebras are not afraid of people. Under the guidance of the staff, we can also take photos with them! There are also various birds here! They are all varieties that have not been seen before! I also saw that some people have already set up camp here, I thought maybe camping here, shouldn’t it have a different flavor? ! ! The air here is very fresh! The breeze is very comfortable for people with a little sunshine! Next to this is the river, the water is very clear! Above the river are high mountains and blue sky and white clouds! It's really beautiful! We sat under a big tree and looked at various wild animals in the distance with binoculars. We stopped to eat when we saw enough (there were many people picnicking here) occasionally some naughty animals ran away Come to eat and drink next to us hahaha This is a very different experience! Picnic in this wild reserve for the first time! For the first time, I can come into contact with so many wild animals that I could only see on TV before!
Drostdy Museum
厚脸皮小宝A very special historical collection! Speaking of museums, I have been to the kind of tall buildings outside, the kind that look very western, and they are all in more prosperous locations, but the museum I visited this time really broke me It is an impression concept for all museums. This location is very special in a South African museum, called the Drosti Museum. The appearance is really not what you usually see. You can’t tell from the outside. This is a museum. It is a very ordinary small house, but it is very warm. It's like the one we usually live in. They are all in the same courtyard or arranged, but they are separated one by one. Like the texts we learned when we were young, the green tiles and white walls are really like this. Yes, it is especially like our Southern Huizhou architecture, except that there is no horse head wall, and the space inside is not very large, but the exhibition inside is closely related to our lives. There is a leather shoe shop that displays various eras. The version, style, and color are really amazing. There are also children’s creations. Nowadays, many children in the family are relatively small and sleep with their parents. They also use this style of creation. A big bed is next to it. A small bed with a fence is very warm and shows the wisdom of people's lives. Actual suggestion: There are about 10 scenic spots in this area. This museum is ranked first, so it is definitely worth spending time to visit. Secondly, the opening hours are currently from 9 am to 5 pm.
