Kalk Bay Harbour

Kalk Bay harbour lies on the East Coast of the Cape Peninsula and lies in the False Bay Gulf. Growing up in Cape Town, Kalk Bay has always been a great post for watching seals, eating out and watching the fishermen come in with the catch of the day. The harbour walks also offer relaxing views of the ocean and a nice break away from the city. Let’s discover more about this small spot in the Cape.

The Cheetah Outreach

A few years ago, I went on a quick drive up to Stellenbosch and we spotted a cheetah sanctuary. We are lucky in South Africa. We get so much amazing opportunities to see wildlife, that most people only get to see on the National Geographic channels. Whether the animals are in their natural habitat or in sanctuaries, we are still lucky to be able to see them in plenty.

  • I have been informed that the Cheetah Outreach has moved to Somerset West, about 20 minutes from Stellenbosch. Please refer to the website (below) for more details)

Cape Town’s 10 Best Beaches

What is a holiday without the beach? I judge a good vacation by the quality of beaches the country has, if they have any of course.

Take it from me, I was born here!

The Rough Skins In Knysna

I love animals and nature. I also like taking photos of them! I promised myself a trip up South Africa’s beautiful Garden Route to see the elephants.

I originally planned to go to the ADDO Park, a real nature reserve on the borders between the Western and Eastern Cape, but a family member suggested the Knysna Elephant Park. The Knysna Elephant Park is a great experience, if you want to really interact with the elephants and if you are on a budget. You get to meet them, feed them, touch them, connect with them and take lots of cool close-up pics of them too.

The Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens

d04ac-dscn2607I love flowers. I like photographing them, drawing them and just being around
them….minus the bees and gross bugs of course.

Kirstenbosch Gardens in Cape Town has an awesome flower collection and it’s one of my fave places to go and relax on sunny days. Here is a small collection of my faves from my last visit. Now, I usually limit an album to my top fave 10, but they’re flowers….don’t be impossible!

At The V&A Waterfront
South Africa isn’t necessarily perceived as a shopping capital or the go to place to get your shop on, but that has not stopped fashion from happening on our shores! Fashion is big here as any other country, and it definitely has elements that make it unique and fun. We also have lots of fashion blogs popping up, making a buzz on what’s happening here and the latest styles seen on our streets and in our shops.
