Retrace Andrew's Journey

Coast to Coast

Relive the adventures of Nat Geo's Digital Nomad (@WheresAndrew), who traveled to South Africa to explore the coastal cities of Cape Town and Durban. Along the way, Andrew kayaked around the Cape of Good Hope, photographed the colorful buildings in Cape Town's Bo-Kaap neighborhood, hiked Lion's Head mountain, met Mahatma Gandhi's granddaughters, and learned how to speak Zulu in Durban.
