Reflecting on the #braaitour through 14 Instagrams

Wow, what an incredible week it was! I traveled with a bunch of amazing people on the National Braai Tour from Johannesburg to Cape Town, and now I want to take a moment to remember all the incredible South African heritage destinations we had the privilege to explore.

We were 30 teams of four, plus an extraordinary support crew, embarking on an eight-day adventure. Our journey took us through every town, village, and national park we could find, giving us the chance to meet new people and enjoy some seriously delicious braai. Let me tell you, South Africa is bursting with breathtaking places and some of the warmest, most welcoming individuals you’ll ever encounter. Happy Heritage Day, everyone! Let’s celebrate National Braai Day together!

Day 1 of the National Braai Tour was off to an amazing start with the aroma of freshly baked bread filling the air. Can you imagine? So delicious! It set the tone for the adventure that lay ahead. #braaitour #eureukamills #southafrica

Have you ever seen a soccer field as beautiful as this one in South Africa? The scenery at Golden Gate National Park took our breath away. It was truly a magical spot to enjoy a braai and soak in the beauty of nature. #goldengate #braaitoer #soccer

When I saw the sunrise at Mountain Zebra National Park, it took my breath away. The landscape was so beautiful, with the sun painting the sky in vibrant colors. As I stood there, I couldn’t help but feel a deep connection to the natural world around me. Nature has a way of making us appreciate the beauty and wonder that exists in the world.

Leandri van Rensburg captured a rare sight in Bergkwagga National Park. Zebras are not commonly found in this park, but here they are, sharing the territory with some fierce lions. It’s amazing how nature works, creating a delicate balance between different species.

During the #braaitour in Addo Elephant Park, I had a breathtaking experience with a lightning and thunderstorm. The intensity of the storm was exhilarating, and I managed to capture a single image of the moment with my GoPro camera. It’s moments like these that remind us of the power of nature and the beauty that can be found in unexpected places.

Jan Braai always has incredible adventures to share. The #braaitour has taken him to some of the most stunning places in South Africa. Through his travels, he shows us the diverse and awe-inspiring landscapes that our country has to offer. It’s a reminder to get out there and explore the beauty that surrounds us.

Wow, what a magnificent flag for the most amazing country in the world! I am so grateful to @sarahmisaacs for sharing this incredible picture. It truly captures the spirit of our nation and fills me with pride.

Meet Sarah Isaacs

On day 6 of the #braaitour, we made a stop in J-Bay for some delicious fish and chips. It was the perfect way to fuel up and continue our incredible journey. I can’t wait to see where we go next!

The Point of Human Origins in Mossel Bay is an exceptionally significant historical site. It takes us back an astonishing 162,000 years in time. When you visit this place, you can’t help but be amazed by the clear signs of civilization and fire making that are still visible today. It’s a powerful reminder of our origins and how far we’ve come.

#Day6 of the #braaitour and I had to make a pit stop at the incredible #bloukrans #bridge on my way to #plettenbergbay. It was time to tackle our second #heritagetask of the day, which was finding a perfect spot right beside the #N2 to enjoy a delicious #braai. And you won’t believe it, but one of us even decided to test their courage with a daring #bungijump!

What does @janbraai have to say about #plettenbergbay? Well, it turns out that the first people to settle here were 100 Portuguese sailors who were stranded for a whopping 9 months when their ship, the #sangonzales, sank in the bay back in 1630. The town was named #plettenbergbay in 1779 by Baron #joachimvanplettenberg, who was the governor of the #capecolony. But here’s the best part: many locals call it #plettenbergbraai, because let’s be honest, what’s a trip to Plettenberg Bay without a good ol’ braai session?
