Saving rhinos one note at a time

One of my favourite pastimes is attending a live show. There’s nothing like the rush, hype and adrenaline you feel every time a belting note reaches your ears.

Breedekloof – The Wine Route Less Travelled

You’ve probably heard of the Breede River Valley, a wine region that stretches from Ceres all the way to Bonnievale in the Western Cape. The Breedekloof, however, is a smaller region within the wider valley and is nestled between a collection of mountain ranges around Worcester, Rawsonville and Goudini. Not marketed as extensively as the Stellenbosch […]

Pack Your Bags for a Weekend in Pringle Bay

It’s difficult to imagine that utopian places like Pringle Bay exist so close to a massive, buzzing metropole. This Overberg town truly has everything you could want from a weekend getaway destination ─ a pristine beach, a virtually zero crime status, cosy eateries, curio shops, family-friendly facilities, spectacular surroundings and of course, above all, jaw-dropping […]
