Remote Hideaways on the West Coast

Who doesn’t want a beach house you can escape to when you need a little bit of a breather? Especially during this time, I wish my home was far from everything and everyone with the waves crashing on the beach just a few meters from my front door ─ somewhere I can walk long distances […]

Go game viewing along the Garden Route

What do you get when you combine fynbos-covered mountain slopes, fairy-tale forests and lukewarm lagoons with our country’s mighty Big Five? A game-viewing experience along the Garden Route, of course! Although the Kruger is arguably the ultimate wildlife destination, it’s often a stretch too far for those living in the coastal parts of South Africa, […]

All Roads Lead to the Karoo: An Alternative Route to Sutherland

Living in a city that never seems to sleep, we tend to take the route of least resistance to our destinations, ignoring everything in our wake. But due to unforeseen circumstances on a sultry Friday morning near De Doorns, Schalk and I had to amend our perfectly-planned trip to avoid the N1 ─ something that’s […]

Campfires, Dad Jokes and Awkward Laughters ─ Dinokeng Nature Reserve in the Spotlight

It’s almost time to light the fires, get out the guitars, sing Billy Joel campfire songs and listen to the crickets after a bad joke’s punchline, i.e. dad jokes. Being a Joburg local, I know people in Gauteng like to slow down, escape to the wild, and enjoy the company of loved ones in nature. […]

In the light of #NationalMarineWeek, TravelGround is proud to introduce these special sea creatures! Bottlenose Dolphin These aquatic mammals are arguably the most popular among humans and with […]

It’s Always December In Durban!

If you’re not into camping, the icy Atlantic Ocean, or general outdoor activities during the winter, then finding something to do for the whole family when it’s chilly outside can leave you in a bit of a pickle. Luckily, South Africa is blessed with both the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, which makes Durban an absolute […]

Oudtshoorn: An Oasis in the semi-desert Karoo

Everytime I thought about Oudtshoorn, I immediately connected it with the Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees (KKNK), and while this festival is still a great reason to visit the Grootvoëlparadys, there are so many reasons for you to travel here any other time of the year as well. With temperatures reaching a high of 36°C during […]
