Cruise The Cape Town Coastline With Tigger 2

I was recently given the opportunity to enjoy a sunset cruise with Tigger 2 Charters, and boy was it a fabulous experience. So much so that I feel obliged to share it with all of you so that you too can hop on board this luxury catamaran, feel the cool salty sea air of the Atlantic on your face and enjoy a sunset view like no other. We arrived at the pier in the V & A Waterfront in Cape Town and were offered a comfy seat while we waited to board the Tigger 2. When the boat and crew were ready, we stepped inside and were greeted with an ice-cold glass of champagne, much to my de...

Eat Sleep Do In Paternoster on the Cape West Coast

Paternoster is a village on the Cape West Coast that just oozes charm and a quaint appeal. Maybe it’s the white-washed houses; maybe it’s the long stretches of sandy beaches. Maybe it’s just the pace, which never seems to pick up beyond a gentle amble to match the rhythm of a seaside stroll. Whatever it is, there’s no doubt that Paternoster is a gorgeous destination for a weekend getaway. It’s one of the oldest towns on this stretch of the South African shores and, although it has a laid-back vibe and quiet setting, offers a fair amount of things to do and see.

Eat, Sleep, Do In Hermanus

Hermanus is one of those idyllic destinations – it combines a quiet fishing village vibe with loads of wildlife, gorgeous wine farms, and close proximity to Cape Town. Hermanus is world-renowned for its whale-watching between around July and December. It’s at this time when the southern rights, humpbacks and, sometimes, Minke whales visit the coastline and entertain their spectators. Whales are just about as curious as we are. So, they may approach whale-watching boats, peek out of the water at the humans, or even leap out in powerful displays of their playfulness. More than this, Hermanus i...

Crocs, Cats And Megabats – All In A Day’s Work At Cango Wildlife Ranch

Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though. That's the problem. ― A.A. Milne Interacting with animals naturally appeals to humans. Petting a puppy is irresistible; a wild bird getting unusually close to us is fascinating. Their soulful gaze, elegant physiques and innocent acceptance of uninvited human guests is always deeply moving to me. We recently spent a night in Oudtshoorn and visiting the Cango Wildlife Ranch was at the very top of my list of things I absolutely had to do there. Actually, if I’m entirely honest, it was the only thing on my list. I’d been there years ago as a...
