The students of the Spring 2012 voyage of Semester at Sea captured many facets of South Africa through their own unique perspectives. Diving straight into the heart of South Africa- its people- students not only joined in home-stays and schools, but service projects in the townships as well. Going beyond the close relations with the people they encountered, Semester at Sea students had the chance to know another side of Africa, the animals. From safaris in private game reserves to the Garden Route, the Big Five became a highlight in their understanding of the relationship between South Africans and their environment. Traveling back to the city, students did a myriad of activities like hiking Table Mountain and Lion's Head, swimming in the coast's famous waters, and catching a football game. The students were able to experience, understand, and capture both the natural and cultural aspects of South Africa's identity through their own lenses, bringing a unique and diverse message about what they are learning.
