Cape Town - September is celebrated as Heritage and Tourism Month, and South Africa's natural beauty continues to dominate the centre stage, proving that our country's stunning natural offering is certainly a massive part of our diverse heritage.
We couldn't get enough of the beautiful Spring blossoms that are a must-see on the West Coast, while also admiring Chile's Atacama Desert blooms.

To add to nature's marvels, we got to see an unexpected heroic act in Kruger, and SANPark's is hosting its annual Photography Competition which showcases what our parks have to offer.
Meanwhile in the city, we get ready to say goodbye to Ratanga Junction, and travel writer Darrel Bristow-Bovey shares why SA isn't the only country with jerks and quirks when it comes to public transport in his latest column.
