Student Photo Gallery: South Africa

Cape Town is known for many things: its downtown grid of skyscrapers, its painful political and social history of apartheid, the thick network of shacks and homes that make up its townships, its magnificent landscapes and greenery its mountainous backdrop of Table Mountain. With five days to explore this city, SAS students discovered the wildlife, communities and culture that is part of Cape Town during the Fall 2013 voyage’s stop in the southern tip of Africa. Here are just some of their photos.
