KHAMA RHINO SANCTUARY

July 19, 2018


Just outside of Serowe in Botswana was one of the most beautiful experiences we’ve had so far traveling Southern Africa – the Khama Rhino Sanctuary. It’s a wildlife project set up in ’92 to assist with the fast-pace diminishment of the rhino. What they have done for the species in this magical place truly brought me to tears. To see how the government has directed its military resources to the conservation of an almost extinct breed of animal was truly an eye-opener.

BIEWDOUW AGAIN

May 14, 2018


Biedouw valley, the perfect escape from Cape Town. We keep going back because it just doesn’t get old. Signal-less it really is the getaway you sometimes need mid month. The boys love to go riding, but I happily set up camp and read my book while keeping an eye on the potjie. I always find reflection an instant source of anxiety, like a beat-up of why you haven’t done what your set out to do, yet. But with a change in lifestyle and work especially I have learnt that things take time, even more so when you want them to be perfect. So sit back sometimes, and enjoy the nature, the beautiful flora and the loved ones you get to see sans cellphone!

BACK TO WEEKENDING

February 27, 2018

It has been a while since we got away for the weekend, I need to be in nature to really switch off and that’s why a quick West Coast vacation does the trick. I constantly get asked were we stay when we head to Paternoster, our best family friends have a beautiful spacious home on the beach with a cute cottage at the side (perfect for couples). So we stay there each time we go up. They do rent it out when they don’t use it or are back in Israel and all the details for it are here http://zulabeachhouse.co.za. The place is perfect for a big group/ family in the main house, or if you are wanting a romantic weekend away just the two of you the cottage can be booked separately! The grass has just been replaced with decking(due to the draught), so it looks even snazzier! Other places to rent or stay I will link below.

PARADISE AT OUR DOORSTEP

February 6, 2018

We have paradise right on our doorstep, did you know? Were you even aware that a flight to the Seychelles was unnecessary if you just needed a tropical break for the weekend. Yip I found a slice of heaven, I’m pretty sure I’m late to the party but none the less excited to have discovered this beautiful spot right around the corner from Cape Town up the West Coast. Nestled between Churchhaven (a sanctuary) and Langebaan (a lively seaside town) is the delicate cove of Kraalbaai. Continue Reading…

CHOBE BY WATER

February 5, 2018

We were lucky enough to do an swampfari (dubbed that by me) along the river one afternoon, it was the best viewing for close up hippos and to see how green the wetlands are within all the Chobe channels.
