Candice Eseme - Welcome to my page!

About Me

I was brought up on the Cape Flats and had a really awesome childhood. My best holiday was when the family went to Plettenberg Bay: I fell in love with this beautiful town, its white beaches, the amazing weather and the great atmosphere just made it more enjoyable. I knew that I wanted to take my own family there one day!

Today I am a mom of three and can't wait to show my children the wonders of South Africa. I love the simple things in life: a warm comfortable bed, good wholesome food and activities to keep the kids busy.

In summertime I love the being outdoors, enjoying nature, the great weather and taking the kids for a picnic at Kirstenbosch. During winter I love to cuddle up and keep warm with the fireplace going, watch movies and play board games.

Where have I travelled

Locally I've been to Hermanus, the Cape Winelands, the Garden Route, Sun City and Pilanesberg National Park.

My favourite travel moment

We were at Knysna Elephant Park along the Garden Route and my six-year old daughter was fascinated with these gentle giants. While stroking one of the elephants, she got a bit too close and received a little kick from the ellie. Not to worry though, she was fine, just realised that you do not mess with these animals!

What I love about Africa

Growing up very sheltered from the outside world in my small community in Cape Town. All I wanted to do was go to America when I grew up, not realising the awesome and exciting destinations right under my nose!

When I met my husband, who comes from Cameroon, my eyes were opened up to what lies beyond the borders of South Africa. Africa possesses a natural wealth that you will find nowhere else in the world. I am proudly African!

Some African travel advice

Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen! Try to do something that the locals do and have as much fun as you can.

Where I'd love to go next

Victoria Falls, Botswana and Mozambique.

Africa Safari Expert

Africa has become the 'Canaan' of the 21st century: a land of milk & honey with untouched landscapes & rugged natural beauty.

Read what our Travellers have to say

We are happy to have arrived home safe and well, but sad that our time in South Africa was too short. Our week in South Africa was a fantastic adventure. We were able to enjoy the Elephant Safari from Sun City and the game drives from Bakubung Lodge. We spent a wonderful day interacting with the exotic animals at Akwaaba Lodge, before leaving the Pilanesberg National Park for  Cape Town.

In Cape Town we were met at the airport by yet again a friendly informative driver from Ilios travel who took us to The Portswood Hotel. The hotel was conveniently situated in close proximity to all the attractions and services we needed. From Cape Town we took a Wine Country tour, a trip to the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point, a city tour on the red sightseeing bus and the Cable Car up to Table Mountain. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay in South Africa and would like to thank you for your friendly advice and help in all the bookings you made for us.
