Candice Eseme - Welcome to my page!
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
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.
