    {Travel} Zanzibar – Part 2: Mnemba Atoll & Safari Blue

      With The Spice Islands Tour behind us, today I want to tell you about two sea excursions in Zanzibar I think should definitely be on your bucket list. The first is Mnemba Atoll, a marine reserve near Mnemba Island. The atoll is teeming with wildlife and is considered one of the best regions for diving / snorkelling in all of Zanzibar. Mnemba is a private island, located on the Northeast coast of Zanzibar Island (where we stayed) that a really rich guy has purchased. The Island is home to the &Beyond Mnemba Island Lodge, and although for most travellers a stay at this hotel is not possible, the large circular reef…

    A First Timers Guide to The Kruger

    I wrote a first Timers Guide to The Kruger blog post because it really is one of the most special places you will ever visit in your lifetime and it is right on your doorstep. In fact, from Joburg, the closest gate, Malelane is only four and a half hours away. That may be pretty obvious to regular Kruger goers, but I do think a lot of South Africans forget just how lucky we are to have such easy access to the park, considering that thousands of tourists from around the world, spend years saving to visit the Kruger, then take the long haul flights with stop-overs and endless road…

    How not to be a Butt-head in the Kruger

    As promised in my last Kruger article, I wanted to write a blog post about How Not To Be A Butt-head in the Kruger. There are a lot of regular Kruger goers, old-timers and veterans, who have been going to the park for years, who respect the rules and etiquette of the Kruger and who constantly have to deal with butt-heads who show no respect to the park and animals. Butt-heads everywhere in the Kruger What we have come to realise in our time visiting is that nobody reads or respects the rules they receive from SAN Parks when driving into the park. With that in mind, here are a…

    Cape Town in 72 Hours

    It is possible to see ALOT of Cape Town in 72 Hours. I cannot believe the first time I actually went there EVER was only in 2016. How had I lived my entire life without knowing such a beautiful place? Both times we’ve visited, we arrived early on a Friday morning and left on Monday morning. And, both times we crammed everything we possibly could into those 72 hours. So, I thought I’d love to write about some of the things you can do over the course of 2 – 3 days in the beautiful mother city, which you can use as a guide, especially if it’s your first time…

    Nooitgedacht Trout Lodge

    Only three hours out of Joburg and just passed Dullstroom, lies the hidden gem that is Nooitgedacht Trout Lodge. I say hidden gem because most people prefer to visit Dullstroom – its closer to Johannesburg and is quite built up with trendy restaurants, bars and fly fishing shops. While Dullies is always fun for a weekend getaway, Shaun and I both prefer more off the beaten track type places. I had actually asked Shaun’s dad for advice (being a fly fisher too) and it turned out that this place was the ultimate LOW KEY fly fishing haven. So, I booked a getaway for his 29th Birthday last year February, and…
