So after an amazing few months spent driving through southern Africa visiting nature reserves, national parks and doing our very own self-drive safaris, I thought it was only right that I re-watch The Lion King (for the hundredth time). I couldn't help notice how similar it was (song and dance numbers notwithstanding) to our real-life... Continue Reading →
Cape Town has always been on my bucket list. At first, it was just a popular African city with good views. The more I learned about it, the more I realised there was so much more to it. Hiking, wine tasting and a beach full of penguins to name a few, this city and it’s... Continue Reading →

I’ve always felt drawn to South Africa. I want to go on a safari, I need to cage dive with great white sharks, I crave the adrenaline rush of a bungee jump, I love to climb mountains, and I live for a beautiful coastline. It seems like the south coast of South Africa can tick... Continue Reading →
