  With only a few roads and being of difficult access, the Wild Coast in South Africa has remained unspoiled and kept its rugged beauty. In most cases, walking is the only way to get access awesome wild beaches, where often cows are peacefully strolling on the foreshore and kids playing and running on the golden sand....

I couldn’t think at a journey through South Africa and a stop in Johannesburg without visiting Soweto, the largest township home of huge contrasts and the place where the battle for freedom against the Apartheid began.
