Everything about Tintswalo is cleverly designed to make you feel relaxed and pampered. The luxurious finishes, …

Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park with Chevrolet

This is one of my favourite places in the world. And my very favourite African game park. It’s difficult to describe the peace of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park (on the border of Namibia and Botswana) – with no cellphone signal, no internet connection and very few people – it is one of the best places …

Rediscovering the Magic of Tulbagh

It’s been nearly 10 years since we’ve stayed in Tulbagh and as we drove into the quaint, charming town we had to wonder why it’s taken so long to get back.

A Day to Remember with Not In The Guidebooks

A Beer and Wine Tasting Tour, with a Twist This was to be no ordinary Monday. I stood in the Green Point MacDonalds car park, midway through an uncharacteristically dreary Summer morning, waiting for him to arrive. As I monched my way through a somewhat unsatisfying McD’s burger (yes, for breakfast, don’t judge me), I …

A Safari Dream Trip with eKhaya Bush Villa

There is no place quite like the African bush; when life’s demands get too much, it’s what my soul craves. It’s the space, the quiet and the peace. I love this quote, it expresses much of what I struggle to put into words:   “…few can sojourn long within the unspoilt wilderness of a game …
