My trip to Kruger & Madikwe in December was such a highlight for me. Read all about it in our blog post, 'Our Latest Travels: Kruger & Madikwe'.

About Me

Born and bred in beautiful Cape Town, I am proud to say that after many years of travelling around the world, I have not seen a more beautiful city than my hometown! My likes and interests include anything outdoors and adventurous, eating, meeting people, watching the good old Stormers play a game of rugby, sitting next to a campfire, enjoying good company and exploring Africa!

Where have I travelled

In South Africa I've travelled to the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, Garden Route, Sun City, Madikwe Game Reserve and Kruger National Park, while in Africa I've visited Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Zanzibar and Egypt.

Internationally I've travelled to the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Thailand, India, Malaysia, Italy, France, Spain, Greece, Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Alaska, Canada, Hawaii, Mexico and mainland United States.

My favourite travel moment

I have too many favourite moments but the highlights would be riding a African elephant through Addo Elephant National Park; being up close and personal with a pride of lions in Madikwe Game Reserve; river rafting down the Zambezi River and snorkelling in Lake Malawi.

What I love about Africa

Wow, where do I begin...I have such a passion for this beautiful continent of ours! The natural beauty, the cultures, the amazing outdoor activities; there is so much history to explore and the fact that each country offers you a whole new exciting experience, there is no continent in the world that can offer you what AFRICA can!

Some African travel advice

Leave all your worries and stress behind and be prepared to let the natural beauty of Africa fill your soul and offer you a whole new perspection of what true living is all about. 'Hakuna Matata!'

Where I'd love to go next

The Okavango Delta in Botswana and then to East Africa to experience the amazing wildebeest migration!

Read what our Travellers have to say

Candice, I have had my holiday and now I have a confession to make. I am deeply, madly in love with South Africa. Through all the travels that I had, I have never ever experienced, nor even hoped to experience, anything comparing to the overwhelming magic of that land, its colors, the taste of air, the stars above it, the eternal circle of its life, its wonderful people... I can go on and on forever... Africa truly changes people who visit it once. Now the better half of my heart will always reside there, half of the world from me. I am looking forward to return next year and counting the days already. Thank you very much for all kind assistance that you have provided to make that journey possible.
