Into The Wilderness: Two Nights In A Mountain Hut

I’m perched on the edge of a cliff, a winding valley with a small river rushing through it lies before me. To my right, towering snow-capped peaks bastion the undulating Fynbos-covered landscape that rolls beneath it. We have escaped the humdrum of the city for two nights in the Du Toit’s Kloof mountains. A wood […] → Continue Reading Into The Wilderness: Two Nights In A Mountain Hut

Orange River: Life as a river rat

“Lifejackets!” shouts our guide Yango John. Yikes – that means there’s a rapid ahead. And this one’s a biggie. It’s called Sjambok, probably for a reason. My sister Sammie and I are paddling together and we shout instructions at each other as we get close. The rushing water is carrying us through a narrow channel.

A Hidden gem of the Cape’s West Coast

Recently on a birding and fishing adventure up the West Coast from Cape Town we discovered a resort which many Capetonians have not even heard of, never mind experienced. There we found what we were looking for… solitude, a log cabin on stilts practically over the water, an abundance of bird life and still sunny […] → Continue Reading A Hidden gem of the Cape’s West Coast

Caving in Cape Town

Last week People Like Us Safaris set out on an exploration through some unique caves in the Table Mountain range. They are unusual in the sense that they were not formed in limestone but in sandstone and quartzite. These caves and particularly the tunnels that we entered are not widely used or even known about […] → Continue Reading Caving in Cape Town
