The rich diversity of Africa’s Rainbow Nation extends far beyond its multiracial society. In everything from geography to music to natural resources, we discover a world of variety in a single country. Our journey through South Africa takes us from rugged mountain peaks to tropical beaches passing through desert, forest and savannah along the way. We go underground where miners harvest gold and diamonds, and underwater where great whales migrate offshore. Our travel journal records the simple facts of daily life for South Africans – from the largest cities to the smallest villages. We meet artists working to counter violence in the townships, visit farms tended by descendents of the Boers, celebrate family occasions, track elephants, taste wine… whatever it takes to reveal the vibrant cultural melting pot that is South Africa today. 5 episodes: The Zulu, Animal Country, Diamonds & Gold, From Sun City to Kalahari, Welcome to Cape Town The eighth installment of a series featuring Notebooks from Asia, Notebooks from China, Notebooks from Egypt, Notebooks from India, Notebooks from Mexico, Notebooks from Japan and Notebooks from America.
