Republic of South Africa

Cape Town is located in the southwest corner of South Africa. It is about 1100 miles from the northern border with Mozambique and Zimbabwe (that is about how far it is from our home in Kalamazoo to Denver, Colorado). The cites of Johannesburg, Durban, and Windhoek ( the capital of Namibia) are all about 780 miles away from Cape Town. There are roads going to all of these places but because of the challenges of the geography they will vary in their quality significantly at times. The mountains make sure that all roads twist and turn so getting from one place to another takes time.
