That’s a wrap on #TBAescapes South Africa Photography Tour with FUJIFILM X Series US! 📷
For the last 9 days, I’ve been showing an incredible group of women around some of my favorite spots in South Africa! We dug deep into Cape Town— watched the sun set from Clifton Beach, went to the top of Table Mountain, took a cooking class in Bo-Kaap, ate our hearts out at the Old Biscuit Mill, and took a tour around the street art of Woodstock.

We experienced a Big 5 Safari at Gondwana Game Reserve— complete with hippos, rhinos, elephants, giraffes and zebras! And we sipped our way through the Cape Winelands— indulging in fancy afternoon teas and wine tastings at beautiful wine estates.

It was an absolute blast and I’m so fortunate to have shared the experience with such a wonderful group of women.
I can’t wait to welcome two NEW groups in March! 🐒
