Dive into the Jungle, run with the hippos, swim with the crocodiles. Birds will fly through your hair, trying to pick the litchis from the trees. Climb the neck of a giraffe just to see the rolling waves on lonely white beaches. Only a leatherback is moving it’s heavy body out of the water to dig a hole for new life. The ghost of a crab appears to snatch a   Read More ...

Things get crazy by the beach sometimes. We headed out for a late afternoon surf in the seldomly warm and prestine turquoise coloured sea, only to be stopped in our tracks by one of the Shark Spotters on duty, warning us to some possible shark activity due to a nearby swarm of fish, which some trek fishers were about to net. We went out anyway, but got called back to   Read More ...

Thick white fog embraces us, while we climb higher and higher. A journey into the unknown, maneuvering our car around the tight bends, as suddenly the clouds unveil the long-awaited sign: Sani Pass!

The 30 km pothole studded gravel road immediately slipped our memory, when we cast a first glance into the Injisuthi valley.

So many difficult names for these liquid droplets or frozen crystals made of water, drifting through our atmosphere. Always on the move, dissolving into thin air and resurrecting out of the blue, creating thin layers and big towers, shapes of animals, faces and just things, a   Read More ...

We’ve finally recovered from the mayhem of the the Uncorked Festival in Franschoek, that we can now put in words what we’ve experienced. After our very cozy evening spent all huddled up by the fire in one of  La Chataigne’s amazing guest cottages, we were all fresh and ready the next morning to take on some of the wineries. Luckily the weather gods were good to us – the storms   Read More ...

Every now and then one has to break out of the usual and do something different. In our case we chose to leave our beloved tent behind and treat ourselves to a nice weekend break-away to the Cape winelands in Franschoek.
