South Africa travel to the famous Big Hole
In your plan of South Africa travel, this time leave behind the wilderness and consider visiting some natural attractions. I know that most of the South Africa travel is confined to the national parks.

The Big Hole is regarded as the largest man-dug quarry on the planet and this zeal was for hunting diamonds in the late 19th as well as the 20th centuries. To its west, the Open Mine Museum is the home of the genuinely original as well as refurbished edifices revealing much of the city's past. And yes, how can one forget to see the first  [...]
