Family Holidays: An Ostrich Farm in Oudtshoorn

Our first arranged activity in Oudtshoorn was a tour of the Cango Ostrich Farm, located 14km outside of Oudtshoorn on the main route towards the world famous Cango Caves.

Timeless Travels: Karoo for Kids – A trip to the top of Camdeboo mountains

Kruger for Kids: Day 1 @ Africa on Foot

Recently life has seemed pretty mundane… although I love my life, my family, my work, a lack of adventure and excitement has been getting me down. I adore traveling – exploring and discovering new people and places makes me feel alive…. but as with most other parents on the planet, since kids have arrived on […]

Timeless Travels: My First (& Only) Safari Experience

A while back I entered a competition whereby I shared My First (& Only) Safari which I thought I would share with you here… As a child growing up in South Africa you would think that an intimate knowledge of the African bush would be second nature, and it should be…. except that sometimes it […]
