My parents never took us on ‘Safari’. They took us to the Wildtuin – our name for the Kruger National Park in my Afrikaans family- at least once a year. I remember how me, my sister and my brother would fight for the window seats. And directly afterwards which window seat … just in case the one side of the car […]

We have seen wildflowers in other parts of the world, but nothing prepared us for the magic of springtime in South Africa. Flowers of all shapes and sizes spread out before my feet, carpeting the landscape in every colour of the rainbow. We followed a flower route from Springbok down to the Western Cape and […]

When last did you get tears in your eyes and a lump in your throat as you left a lodge after two nights? That happened to me – and at least three others I know of – on a recent trip to Namibia. When my husband and I were in our twenties, we loved nature […]

Down on the beach I listened with half an ear as Clive from Mokkoran Dive Charters gave his safety briefing. Behind him, his large blue duck lay beached on the sand, waiting patiently to take us through the rough waves and into the ocean beyond. Happy we all understood the plan, Clive instructed us to […]

Wildlife Safari in Sweden Wolves howling in the dead of night was one of the most spine-tingling sounds we’ve ever heard. We were sitting around an open fire in a dark forest, surrounded by towering trees and a canopy of stars, when the howling filled the sky. Wolves are just one of the many animals you […]

Umlani Bush Camp is one of my favourite places in this beautiful country! It means “place of rest”, and that is exactly how I feel when I am there. The stress and craziness of the real world just melts away as you arrive at this little piece of paradise in the African bush. Sit down, […]

I recently visited The Global White Lion Protection Trust – a Non Profit Organisation which has spent years in establishing a protected area of nearly 5000 acres for White Lions in the heart of their natural endemic habitat. This area, once declared a sacred site by African kings, is now (unfortunately) a commercial lion trophy hunting region […]

Why do I travel? To try and understand the world, to speak to strangers, listen and learn, find stories to tell, to find myself, to feel alive, to breath and be whole, to appreciate. To escape the busy, relax and replenish, stop – and contemplate the beauty of the world. Which is exactly why De […]

On our recent road trip to the Northern Cape, we decided to include Augrabies National Park, simply because it is one of those places that you include in an itinerary, if you are in the area anyway. How wrong could I have been, to think that the falls was all this park has to offer? […]

It was my second day at Rocktail Beach camp, a luxury low impact beach lodge in South Africa’s Maputaland, Kwazulu Natal. Engrossed in a crime thriller, I hardly heard a faint plop next to my head. When I looked up to identify the culprit, I saw a little flesh coloured leg, followed by a tail […]
