Cape Verde wasn’t one tiny little archipelago that’s perched around 400 km off the coast of West Africa. I have such fond memories of visiting, especially with all the amazing things to do in Cape Verde. I mean, you’re going to be spoilt for choice. Flights from cities like London usually take around 5-6 hours (direct), … Continue Reading

Morocco is a pretty incredible country to explore. Now, I know I say that to lots of places, but I truly mean it! It’s one of those countries that’s so much more than just the Souks of Marrakech, with so many of the best things to do in Morocco outside of the city itself. From the unspoilt … Continue Reading

Resting just above South Africa, Namibia is one epic country to visit in Africa. Of course, Africa is a diverse and incredibly beautiful continent; with places like Morocco, South Africa, Kenya and, of course, Namibia being proper-beautiful countries to visit. The best thing of all about Namibia is its eye-opening landscapes that, I swear, compare to … Continue Reading

Morocco is one of those countries that just intrigues and excites! I know that sounds so airy-fairy and wishy-washy but it’s true! There’s just something so special about visiting Morocco. With its stunning Arabesque architecture, souks and even blue-coloured cities – it’s unlike so many places you can visit so close to Europe (except maybe … Continue Reading

One of the best ways to see animals and nature in the wild is on a safari. No zoos, no interaction and most certainly lots of space for us travellers to see some of the word’s most impressive animals in the wild. If you’re planning a safari, it can be difficult to choose where to … Continue Reading

Africa is huge, like seriously, it’s a vast continent that’s so varied and filled with a melting pot of cultures, identities, beautiful nature and history. It’s a content that has so much diversity that is sometimes forgotten when we hear ‘Africa’ mentioned as a place to go to. It really is hard to bottle down … Continue Reading

Cape Town was one of the biggest travel surprises for me. It’s a place I only added to our travel itinerary because the three of us (Lloyd, Georgia and I) we wanted to do and see something in South Africa, in addition to going on safari (which was the main reason why we were in South … Continue Reading

When we booked our flights to South Africa, I took it for granted that organising the details of our safari would be the least of my worries. Having travelled quite a bit, booking hotels seemed like second-nature, the hardest part really was finding a place that you like (which is easy enough in itself), the … Continue Reading

If you’re into Planet Earth (like we VERY MUCH are), then no doubt going on safari will be right up there at the top of your travel list. We’d wanted to do this for so long and eventually, on a Friday evening with wine and friends, while actually planning a vacation to Peru, we took … Continue Reading

A very (very) quick post here! We visited South Africa late last year (for the first time) on safari with a pit stop in Cape Town and pretty much fell in love with it! The main reason we visited really was to go on safari and Cape Town was just an add on (at the time) … Continue Reading

South Africa is a pretty amazing country to explore, especially if you’re a fan of action-packed adventure, delicious food and literally hundreds of elephants… I’ve gotta say, I was in my element! After our last trip to South Africa, where we visited  Kruger National park, catching up with the ‘big 5’, we knew we wanted to return! If Kruger … Continue Reading

After spending our last morning in Port Elizabeth in the Red Location township, we headed back to the city for a quick tour around the city (which, as it turns out, is the only thing we hadn’t really done at this point). We went past the stadium (World Cup fans probably recognise it) and zoomed … Continue Reading

Ever since I clapped eyes on a South African township as we arrived into Cape Town, I’d been intrigued by them. In a similar way as I would when walking through residential areas in London and having a sneaky glance as I walked past people’s home, I’ve always been intrigued by how other people live. … Continue Reading

I wanted to write this post almost immediately after we returned from the restaurant! If it weren’t for my food haze and subsequent indulgence in some South African red wine, I would have been singing the praise of this place almost as soon as we got back to the Singa Lodge. How did we find … Continue Reading
