Although I first left the Philippines for Zambia in 1986 as a teenager, it was only in 1993 when I became a permanent resident of Africa. Being a local in Africa has its perks especially for someone who is an eternal tourist at heart. This is simply to give you a little taste of Africa, South Africa specifically.
The following photographs are not professionally taken, and definitely not for commercial purpose. They have been taken by a local South African on vacation (mostly me), using a point and shoot, even a mobile phone. Thus, I can confidently say that you need nothing special to experience what you see.
