Iziko South African Museum: The Incidental Daddy

If you find yourself with a couple of hours to spare on any day, I’d highly recommend finding your way to the Iziko South African Museum for an explore and a wander. Located in the Company’s Garden, the Museum was founded in 1825 and houses important collections in the field of zoology, paleontology and archeology.

From fossils to the extinct quagga, from whales to meteorites, artifacts and insight into South Africa’s human past, it’s fabulous: A place to look, learn and linger. To escape and explore … 

I visit as often as possible and encourage you to do the same. 

It’s a happy place, a place of fond childhood memories and new discoveries.
