South Africa is a dream destination that has something to offer everyone. It could easily be referred to as almost the whole world in one country as it is currently one of the most exciting adventure destinations. So if you are an adventure junkie, a nature lover, a beach bum, a city dweller, a mountain hiker, a foodie or a wildlife addict, South Africa is the place to be.
It is obvious that we both love South Africa. We have travelled South Africa extensively, discovered the many small towns, visited all the major and smaller national parks and nature reserves and we can say that there are not many places we have not visited in South Africa.
We love the outdoors, camping and discovering the deserted bush. However, we also love to indulge ourselves once in a while to some glamping and luxury stays.
With our posts we try to cover all that South Africa has to offer, for everyone, on and off the beaten track. You can read through our posts or send us a message and we can help you plan the trip of a lifetime.
