The safari morning started like every other one usually does. An early wake up call. A couple of seconds spent thinking “Where in the world am I?“. A subsequent realisation that I’m thousands of miles away from home on safari. A rumble around the villa to get ready. Several cups of coffee, swiftly followed by what was … Continue Reading

Muizenberg is a beach suburb in Cape Town and while we didn’t really get the chance to explore Muizenberg in any real depth, one thing we knew we certainly had to do was head down to the beach, albeit not for the obvious reasons one would expect. The thing is Georgia had heard about the colourful beach … Continue Reading

Another day, another safari. You would think the planned nature of the safari drives would mean that the whole experiences lend itself to a certain amount of predictability but au contraire. The very nature of the subjects in question – wild animals, means that no one safari day is ever the same as another. There’s … Continue Reading

After discovering Cape Town recently (where we saw an overload of cute penguins in Boulders Bay, enjoyed the breathtaking coastline of Cape Peninsula and ate our weight in some of Cape Town’s best restaurants), we knew it was only a matter of time before we would have to plot our return to one of the most exciting countries … Continue Reading

After our brilliant first safari, I was understandably excited about the following morning’s safari drive – even if it did mean waking up at 5.00am! I have to admit, especially after going to bed at around 1am the night before – I did struggle for a minute or two with the wake up call, until … Continue Reading

First off, I’ll just admit it – I seriously underestimated Cape Town! The main reason why we visited South Africa was to go on safari and visiting Cape Town was initially nothing more than a was to spend a few extra days between the safari and returning to London. If we’d known how amazing it was and … Continue Reading

Boulders Beach is one of the loveliest places to experience when visiting South Africa, not just because of the cutest little penguins but the amazing work that the South African Government is doing to help the colony of penguins… Aaawww, who am I kidding? It’s mostly because of how cute they are! 🙂 We visited Boulder Beach … Continue Reading

… but before we do that, let me show you around our new South African home. 🙂 After hours of searching for safari lodges (and getting distracted by photos and blog posts of people on safari), I finally decided on going for the Kapama Southern Camp (part of the larger Kapama Private Game Reserve family). Lloyd is … Continue Reading

  We have a real deep love of all things South Africa and an even deeper love of all things food. So what better way to pair our two loves together than by finding some of those secret eating spots to discover while in Cape Town. You may remember that we visited Cape Town and … Continue Reading

Our safari adventure started in Johannesburg but we didn’t get to see much of the city. We arrived late in the afternoon and by the time we had checked into the hotel, freshed up, gone for a quick dip in the pool and subsequently had to refreshen up again, it was night time so we … Continue Reading

Visiting Morocco for the first time last year was something of an eye opener. See, Lloyd had always wanted to visit but I wasn’t fully sold. Eventually, I caved in and we grabbed a couple of friends and headed over to Morocco somewhere between assignments and piles of coursework I had back at Cambridge University. … Continue Reading

Cape Town is such a fun city! Understandably, on a night out in any city, no one wants to be saddled with a DSLR camera so on this night in Cape Town, following the advice of our hosts at the hotel, I left my camera at home and went out armed with just my iPhone. … Continue Reading

On our recent trip to South Africa, I took over 3600 photos. And this was me being ‘prudent’ and trying not to take too many photos. The resultant effect of this of course means that as eager as I have been to share with you what we got up to, I’ve barely been able to … Continue Reading

Situated on the southern most tip of the African continent, Cape Town and the surrounding area is one place I will never forget. As soon as we touched down, I knew this would be an exciting adventure. After spending an unforgettable week in Kruger National Park where we saw lions, rhino, cheetah, elephant and much more, we hoped … Continue Reading
