I recently had the opportunity to visit the magnificent Reunion Island for a week. If you don’t know where it is, don’t feel weird. Surprisingly, it’s only a 4 hour flight from Joburg and lies just 200 km’s south-west of Mauritius. So basically, South Africans should be visiting the island a lot more often than […]

Cape Town Winter: Weekend in Stellenbosch

Cape Town Winter: Weekend in Stellenbosch

It’s no secret that I think the Cape is incredible in summer and in some ways, even better in winter.

Safari in the Western Cape: Gondwana Lodge

Safari in the Western Cape: Gondwana Lodge

There’s something about the bush that can make a weekend away feel like a week-long holiday.
