It can be difficult to find good budget accommodation in Cape Town. While food, drinks, activities, and commodities like petrol may be affordable, where you lay your head down at night is anything but. For those on a more backpackers budget in Cape Town, this can be a serious problem. What do we do when faced with high accommodation costs in cities? We turn … Read More

What is a riad?

What is a Riad? Throughout our whole six week trip in Morocco, we always stayed in a riad. What is a riad you ask?

A luxurious weekend in Cape Town

We’ve been hopping in and around Cape Town now for the past two months.

Between the adventure activities and the sushi lunches we have actually been hard at work in front of our computer and making countless runs to the Department of … Read More

Drakensberg Mountains In South Africa

The Drakensberg mountains in South Africa are a destination not to be missed. They can be found in all sorts of nature documentaries and travel books about Africa.

Ecotourism at Gondwana Game Reserve

We pulled into Gondwana Game Reserve, eager and ready for our week at their new tented eco-camp to experience ecotourism in South Africa.

We pulled into the main reception area of Gondwana, where a stunning lodge awaited us with a pool and high-speed WiFi. “This can’t be right,” we thought. Then appeared Brendan, a ranger that completely fit the part of a hardcore South African conservationist. He informed us that we … Read More
