We were treated to a nights stay in one of the Platbos Log Cabins. These private log cabins are situated in a secret valley on the slopes of the Slanghoek mountains overlooking a beautiful dam with nothing but mountains, fresh air and calm all around you. Each log cabin has […]
The Thornvilla Wine Farm in McGregor has the most relaxing, peaceful, tranquil self-catering cottages we have been to in a long time.We spent 2 nights in the Fossil Hills Cottage and we couldn’t have asked for a better location or setting.Our cottage was set up on a hill which overlooked […]
We all know how city/suburb living can get to be a bit much at times and all we want to do is escape the madness every now and then. Sometimes for a night, sometimes for a few days. Well… us Cape Town folk are super blessed because we live just under […]
We were in Addo about a month back and we loved it! The only disappointing part was that we didn’t stay in the actual park… because we booked too late and the elephant park is that popular that you have to book way in advance to get a spot… so we lucked […]

The self-catering accommodation is situated on a beautiful citrus and rose growing farm in the Sundays River Valley.
We stayed in one of the chalets that run along the Sundays River, equipped with […]

The Farm is located in the Cango Valley, about 14km outside of Oudtshoorn on the […]
We visited the Cango Wildlife Ranch in Oudtshoorn a few weeks ago and it was so much fun. We had heard some pretty good things about the ranch beforehand so we were eager to explore all the cute animals on the day. We bought our tickets and made our way […]

The Cango Caves are situated 29km from Oudtshoorn in a limestone ridge parallel to the Swartberg Mountains.
Not the best pic (sorry) this was from the windy […]

We had a teeny-tiny disaster when we arrived – the guesthouse we had booked AND PAID for was nowhere to be found… we followed the directions we were given “After […]
Barrydale was the first stop on our road trip from Cape Town to Addo Elephant Park.
I did a little research before we left to make sure we didn’t miss out on any of the hip and happening-have to see gems along the way and soon found out that no trip […]
