We’re thrilled to have launched our third City Glimpses project on Steller, and for the month of April we’re zooming in on South Africa — from the sprawling hustles of Cape Town and Johannesburg to the summit of Table Mountain and into the reaches of the Kalahari. For this week’s Twitter chat, we want to know how you’ve taken in this deeply nature-bound country, what center draws you in most, and why you find it a unique destination.

In addition to our friends at Steller, we’ll be joined by co-hosts who’ve carved a fond place for South Africa in their lives and recollections:
