Working, even when i'm not working.. or just not working at all? 😂
I had the pleasure of spending an entire day yesterday being ferried from vineyard to vineyard on The Franshoek Wine Tram.. even got to know quite a few more of the weddings guests that i shall be photographing today.. .
I'm not great at being part of big groups (photographing them is different story as i have a role & a goal), so this intimate little adventure suited perfectly.. it even came with a gentle stream of alcohol (great for icebreaking) and Oysters which highlighted who my real friends were going to be.. 😉
Meet Margy (left) and Libby (right - sisters)... awww these ladies are so much fun.. Margy has bought the shades (she is wearing) for her son.. but also had this trip booked.. so decided could kill 2 birds with one stone.. and wear them first.. in the context they don't appear anywhere on social media (😂). I honestly think this story is wey wey too funny not to share (& when she told it, i immediately knew we'd get on great). I am sure her son will love these shades all the more now they come with a little travel story of their own... either that or i may have just lost a new friend! 😉
See you later ladies! And much thanks for all our giggles yesterday! 😍😘
Lying at the mouth of the Cintsa River, the small, sleepy village of the same name is the perfect place to head to if you want to escape the hubbub of nearby East London for a quiet weekend away.
With a lovely, sandy beach running along the coast, which is bordered by lush forests and peacefully rambling hills, the village is set in a beautiful location with lagoons and rivers nearby.
Due to all the beautiful nature on show, Cintsa has lots of fun outdoor activities for you to enjoy; many guests go horseriding along the beach or canoeing and fishing in the gushing rivers. Alternatively, you can simply lounge around on the beach and take in the unspoiled scenery.
Cape town wouldn't have been such a beautiful experience, had it not been for you.
Our hike to Lions Top, just a couple of hours after I landed in South Africa was quite an experience. It took away the tiredness of a long flight actually. That beautiful sunset, and the view of Cape Town from there would always be a part of me.
You driving me to show me the entire region, right from Houts Bay to Chapmans Peak to Noordhoek to Cape of Good Hope to Simons Town to Kalk Bay to all other places I can't even recall, means a lot.
You always searching and finding the best places for food on all the days I was there truly shows the great hospitality of South Africans.
Never in my life have I found people as cheerful and as friendly as the people of South Africa. Guess that's what makes the country even more beautiful than it is.
I want to thank you for making me experience Cape Town, like I wouldn't have otherwise. .
Jessica #3321 looking gorgeous and showing off her Steam Punk style this morning☺️🚂. Have you ever taken the journey to Ceres with her before? What was it like? Sir Lowry's pass must be quite something to experience by train. Check out my story if you'd like to see the time lapse edit ✌🏻

South Africa is testing out an e-visa for Indian travellers 👍👍👍👍👍👍 First, Disney released a remake of The Lion King. Now, the South African Tourism Minister has rolled out an e-visa for Indian tourists. If these aren’t clear signs guiding you into the light that is the gorgeous African savannah, then what is, really?
South Africa visa for Indians
In an effort to attract more Indian tourists this year, the South Africa Tourism Minister, Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane is currently facilitating an e-visa for Indian tourists that has been rolled out on a trial basis. If all goes well, you can expect it to officially launch from 1 April, 2020 (no kidding). There are also talks of a multiple-entry visa. But more importantly, there are plans for a direct flight from Mumbai, much needed considering that there are no direct flights from India to South Africa right now. Your options include transiting through Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Kenya, which adds time and cost.
I’m very lucky to have seen some insanely beautiful parts of our world. I’m a landscape person, so big scenery always takes my breath away and reminds me how much of a privilege and gift it is to be able to roam far and wide looking for pretty places. And, despite having a pretty competitive list of ‘Top 10 Pretty Places’, Cape Town came along and SMASHED it completely out of the water. It’s a city, so I know you’re wondering why the hell it would take the cake for prettiest place I’ve been, but holy heck I tell ya, Cape Town is THE GOODS! 😍 Day 2 in the city and I was already googling ‘work visas for Australians in South Africa’ because one day I will absolutely be taking my wanderlusting heart and restless feet back here to put down some roots for a while. The coastline along the Cape will blow your mind! (!!!) These mountains that roll down into the deep blue of the Atlantic, the long sandy beaches, the green rolling countryside, the people, the penguins (true story), the food, the vibe, the shopping, the weather, EVERYTHING was amazing. 15/10 for you Cape Town. I love you more than I ever realised was possible! 🌍⛰🏖🌳☀️✨💚 #OrangeKitchenTravels in Cape Town, South Africa (February 2020) 🇿🇦
It’s the weekend. It’s made for wondering, for lingering a little longer.
We are excited to welcome some more wellness travelers to our little piece of Heaven this weekend - ready to show them our way of doing life, our way of experiencing good food, fantastic wine, brilliant people and stunning nature.
The glorious view from my seat on The Wine Tram. Lovely fun chap from Germany: Will i finish up on facebook? Err yeah, more than likely! 😂
Going to miss these views once home.. flippin BEAUTIFUL! 💚
CANGO CAVES MIT KIDS?
Einer der Highlights hier in Oudtshoorn sind definitiv die Cango Caves. Eine riesige Tropfsteinhöhle mit mehreren Räumen, meterlangen Stalagtiten und beeindruckenden Kalksteingebilden.
Man kann bis zu 1,2km in die Höhle hineinwandern, wenn man die Adventure Tour macht. Dort zwängt man sich dann durch 27cm hohe und 1m breite Durchgänge um in die nächsten Räume zu kommen.😲 Erlaubt ist das aber erst mit Kindern ab 14. Deshalb machten wir die Heritage Tour. Dort konnte unsere 3 Jährige alles super alleine laufen und entdecken und das little travel baby in der Trage happy sein 👶
Wir spazierten somit eine Stunde durch die Höhlen und waren begeistert. Klar, es war kommerzialisiert, aber diese teilweise 1,5 Millionen Jahre alten wunderschönen Formen und Formationen zu sehen, die nur durch die Zeit und Wasser geschaffen worden sind... IRRE.
Am Ende der Tour sang unser Guide dann im "Konzertsaal" (ca. 25 Meter hoher Raum) noch Ave Maria mit einer Mega Stimme. Gänsehaut!
In welchen Höhlen ward ihr schon :)? Würdet ihr euch die Adventure Tour zutrauen?
South Africa and Iceland have surprisingly much in common. Visiting these majestic creatures is a popular activity in both countries, for example. As a part of one of our recommended itineraries from Cape Town, we highly recommend stopping by Hermanus and booking a whale watching tour. But don't forget to put down the camera and look around you, too, as the landscape can be just as amazing as the whales themselves.⠀

Have you ever gone whale watching? 👇 #HappyZA

Johannesburg is one of the best cities in the world to enjoy street art. As photographer @freetworoam states "There is mind-blowing art on every corner....It is totally worth taking the time to explore it." You might consider joining a guided street-art tour to ensure you see the best artworks and learn the stories behind them. Photo by @freetworoam. #MeetSouthAfrica

Kruger National Park is among the 10 largest National Parks in Africa. It covers an area of 19,485 sq km (7,523 sq mi) - which is roughly the size of the entire state of Israel - in northeastern South Africa.
The park is only accessible from ten main gates, which close anywhere from 5 pm daily. Driving through the park takes hours and sometimes days. Focus on one area of the Kruger National Park for the best experience.
● 𝗕𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝗴𝗼:
June, July and August are the best months to go. The winters are relatively mild and the ‘bush’ is lean, which means you can see further for better animal spottings.
Mid-November - December is holiday time for South Africans and a lot of Kruger can be booked up, with a surge in prices.

One of my favorite photos I shot in #SouthAfrica . It’s hard to describe the feeling of being so close to these MAJESTIC cats. Can’t wait to do it again.
