Jacuzzi Suites for Gauteng Urbanites

We get so caught up in our professional lives and city traffic that we rarely set aside time to just appreciate each other, or to simply be. Come weekend, a long drive to the countryside or coast leaves little energy for closeness. Sometimes we just need a place that’s near enough to be able to […]

Escape the City of Gold: 12 Gauteng gems

Finally, some freedom! After almost five months of being cooped up in our houses, not allowed to see friends and family, the president announced that the provincial borders are now open and we’re free to explore our own country again.  But before you head to the Kruger National Park, Garden Route or uKhahlamba-Drakensberg Park, consider […]

11 Places to Soothe Your Soul

My bags are practically packed and I am ready to hit the road to my first getaway after this lockdown. If you are anything like me, you want to escape the city and see some new sights for a change! Nothing sounds better than spending time in nature and enjoying a braai with family or […]

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

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. Even though every live show is filled with highlights, the absolute best part is that moment right before the headlining band hits the stage. Everyone’s been standing […]

Snor City ─ Nothing beats the party on Pretoria’s top lip

Being born and bred in Johannesburg, I can only remember Pretoria as a city that comes alive on weekends, wandering around Hatfield, mingling with the locals and even sharing a beer or two. I remember driving around searching for the coolest bands playing and often found myself in local pubs listening to muso’s like Zinkplaat, […]

TravelGround’s Guide to a Chocoholic’s Heaven

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”  ― Charles M. Schulz Valentine’s Day is sneaking its cupid wings around the corner and all you see is white and red decorations, teddy bears and heart-shaped chocolates everywhere you look. Few things go together like chocolate and V’Day. What exactly […]
