Week 1 in South Africa, By Nia D.

Week 1 in South Africa was a success! We started off with a few days in Johannesburg where we learned more about the history of South Africa and its leaders while simultaneously adjusting to the cold weather. Next, we stayed in the Drakensburg Mountains for a few days where we got a lot closer to nature, went horseback riding, visited museums, and had intimate bonding time amongstĀ ourselves. The highlight of our time in the mountains is the 2 hour hike we did. Once we reached the peak, we got a chance to reflect and unpack what we have experienced on the trip so far.
