South Africa

South Africa, a vast country bordering the Indian and Atlantic oceans, seduces by its fauna and the variety of its flora, but also by its history and its traditions. In the south of the country, between Port Elizabeth and Cape Town is an exuberant beauty of landscapes. From the lush Tsitsikamma forest to the semi-arid landscapes of Little Karoo where the pioneers of Africa settled to raise ostriches, the contrast of landscapes is striking! The rocky spur of the Cape of Good Hope and its wind-battered beaches also contrasts with the gentle region of orchards, vineyards or the Roiboos region at the bottom of the Cederberg… Finally, if you are in search of animal observation, the parks and reserves offer a unique animal sanctuary: springboks frolicking in the tall grass, lions lurking in the shade of the acacias and giraffes standing out in a savannah landscape…

About

Portrait of C-Ludik Hi ! My name is C-Ludik and I’m the person who runs this creative space. Welcome to ‘Tween here and there, a travel blog that shares awesome destinations, stunning photographs and captivating travel stories from around the world. No two landscapes are ever the same because of a different light, different conditions... whether it's a new or an old place. That’s what I love about nature and landscape photography. As the famous Ibn Battuta traveler said: « traveling – it leaves you speechless then turns you into a storyteller ». He’s right ! Behind the photographer, I see myself more as a storyteller. When I arrive on a place, I try to respond to what I see and tell the story of the land. If you love travel, exploring new places, and seeing more of this beautiful world then you'll be right at home here. ‘Tween here and there is the travel inspiration for those with full-time jobs and for those in search of any off-the-beaten track destinations around the world, near and far.
