One of my favourite holidays is time spent in the African Bush. Due to my location in Cape Town this is rather limited as the “bush” is located 1000’s of km’s away but I have managed to make a few visits and can’t wait to return. This trip a few years ago was my son’s first introduction to the “wilds” of Africa and we went for the relatively easy to reach Pilansberg National Park located near to Rustenberg in the North West. I can’t wait to take him back now that he is a bit bigger – the experience of seeing wild animals up close really can’t be matched. Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long!

Kathryn is a South African lifestyle blogger and mom of 2 who has been blogging daily for over 9 years! She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!
