We had never been to Addo Elephant Park, the weather looked clear and we wanted to do a game drive before we left South Africa, so this was the perfect opportunity. Unfortunately, we had left booking accommodation far too late and everything in Addo Elephant park was fully booked, so we found the next best thing (if not better). The Tipi Bush Camp, just 10 minutes drive from Addo main gate.
Riebeek Kasteel is a small town 87km from Cape Town, known for its wine, wheat and olives. Many artists have moved to this quaint town, attracted by the picturesque surroundings. Take a stroll around the town centre (a quick 5 minute walk from Villa Augusta), pop into some of the galleries, craft and gift shops, have a G&T at the Royal Hotel or a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants. There are also some great wine farms in the area, so be sure to check those out too!
Last month we spent a night at Oudebosch Eco Cabins in Kogelberg Nature Reserve. And we had the most amazing night there, see our blog post here. We have put together a short video of our stay, enjoy…
Considered to be the most beautiful of Cape Nature’s reserves, Kogelberg has a diverse variety of mountain Fynbos and is a world-renowned World Heritage Site. And we can now completely agree with this statement! We got to experience some of the most beautiful Fynbos, visiting during Spring definitely added to the experience as everywhere you looked, the flowers were in full bloom.
The perfect place for a weekend of peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of city living. Only 2 hours drive from Cape Town, Die Laaitjie is set between the mountains in a valley with a river flowing through it, gorgeous views in all directions, country living and very limited cellphone reception (which is just great!).
Old world charm at its best, Stormsvlei Riverside Cottages are located in the Overberg on the banks of the Sonderend River, on a working dairy farm. This historic farm is 20km from Riviersonderend, just off the N2 on the R317 leading to Bonnievale and Robertson.
