Looking back on the #braaitour in 14 Instagrams

Posted by Chris Davies on 24 September 2014

After a fantastic week, road-tripping from Johannesburg to Cape Town on the National Braai Tour, here’s a look back on the wonderful South African heritage destinations we were privileged to visit.

30 teams of four, plus an amazing support crew, spent eight days on the road, stopping at every town, village and national park we could, meeting new people and braaing with all. South Africa really does have some beautiful places and some very beautiful people. Happy Heritage Day everyone – happy National Braai Day!

"Striking Poles" | While I was in the Addo Elephant Park last week for the #braaitour, we experienced a pretty awesome lightning and thunder storm. This is the only shot I got of it though. Taken with my GoPro. #exploresouthafrica #addoelephantpark #gopro #goproexplorers #braaitour #braaitour2014 #southafrica #thisissouthafrica #meetsoithafrica

#Day6 of the #braaitour and stopped at #bloukrans #bridge on the way to #plettenbergbay to complete our second #heritagetask of the day, find a spot next to the #N2 to #braai... one of the team even attempted the #bungijump! @janbraai has this to say about #plettenbergbay, "...the first #european inhabitants here, or in fact anywhere in #southafrica, were 100 #portugese sailors marooned here for 9 months when the #sangonzales sank in the bay in 1630. #baron #joachimvanplettenberg, governor of the #capecolony, named the town #plettenbergbay in 1779... but most cool #southafricans call it #plettenbergbraai!"

EPIC SELFIE Well not really, but it's still pretty epic, considering the fact that I'm hanging from Gouritz bridge like it ain't no thing! Thank you @roywrench for this shot, go and check his feed out, it's pretty rad and don't forget to follow him... (Not that he needs any more followers) #braaimob #braailife #braaitour #roadtrip
