Hogsback, land of fairies and hobbits

Hogsback, land of the fairies, hobbits, butterflies and pure relaxation, a hidden gem nestled between the Amathole mountains in the Eastern Cape. After a beautiful drive through a dense forest up a winding pass we arrived at Hogsback, a sleepy hollow filled with creatives, hippies and those just trying to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. You will feel lost in time in this enchanted forest escape and will be spoilt for choice when it come to hikes and walks, places to eat and things to do and see.

The best Carrot Cake Recipe EVER!!!

It is a very moist cake that lasts (and still tastes as delicious until the end) about 5-7 days if covered and kept in a cool place. The cream cheese in the icing cuts through the sweetness of regular icing and the crushed pineapple keeps the cake moist and deliciously tasty.

Dinner at The Shortmarket Club
