22 September is World Rhino Day, while September is also Heritage Month. Rhinos are part of our natural heritage and it’s imperative that we conserve them for future generations.  The statistics are scary. Rhino poaching in South Africa increased by 9000% between 2007 and 2014. While rhino killings in the Kruger National Park – South […]

My top things to do in Kenya besides a safari
September 14, 2017

Kenya is perhaps most famously known as a safari destination.  I’ve watched too many National Geographic with David Attenborough narrating the tales of the Great Migration through the Masai Mara. The images of the massive herds moving through the plains are etched in my mind. That being said, Kenya offers so much more than safaris. The […]

I love  the cultural cosmopolitan hub that is Joburg, but sjoe, it’s cold this time of year. Winter is so over-rated.  So fireplaces are the only consolation, but I don’t have one at my place, so honestly I could just skip winter and head straight to beach weather. Really, I’d much rather be in Mauritius, […]

Antananarivo. Antana-na- what? Yes it’s bit of a tongue twister. The locals call it Tana, and it’s the capital city of Madagascar, the world’s fourth largest island.  I’d been to Madagascar before – way before I started this blog – and my first trip there left me longing for more. So when SA Airlink, asked […]

I often get asked for holiday tips these days. Even though Durban is my home-town, it’s also South Africa’s favourite holiday destination and doesn’t get as much love as it deserves. I’ve spent many a family holiday in KZN. Lucky for me my parents were really into travel, and even though they may not have […]
