TLC is gearing up to launch a new series, ‘#MeetSouthAfrica with Jonty Rhodes’, where the former South African cricketer will take four Indians on a trip of their lifetime as they visit South Africa’s most famous destinations.
‘#MeetSouthAfrica with Jonty Rhodes’ will premiere on May 9 and will air every Saturday at 10 pm. From sight-seeing and adventure sports to encounters with great white sharks and the ‘Big 5’, Rhodes will give the four Indians a complete South African experience.
Rahul Johri, Executive Vice-President and General Manager, South Asia and Southeast Asia, Discovery Networks Asia Pacific, said, “TLC continues to raise the bar of lifestyle programming by anticipating trends and presenting refreshing content that delivers unmatched experience. From an athletic cricketer, Jonty Rhodes transitions into his new role of hosting ‘#MeetSouthAfrica with Jonty Rhodes’ that brings the best that South Africa has to offer to the Indian viewers.”
In the first part of the journey, Rhodes will take the group to Cape Town, Africa’s most visited city with a cosmopolitan vibe. In Cape Town, the group will try their hand at sand-boarding, visit the Table Mountain, taste wine in the Stellenbosch wine region and come face to face with the great white shark. Then, they will move on to Johannesburg, where they will visit one of the earliest gold mines, go quad-biking and visit the Kruger National Park to spot the ‘Big 5’ of the animal kingdom.
