You’re guaranteed different sights wherever you travel in South Africa. Depending on what you’re doing, you’ll get different sounds too, says David Moseley.

 
David is a Rhodes graduate (BA Cstl Drght) who rejected a life of news reporting by absconding to the comfort of SI where he was Features Editor.

David likes: polar bears, reading and writing, polar bears that can read and write. David dislikes: hadedas. My goodness, the noise.
