Baffled what to do with the kids during the upcoming school holiday? If your kids love exploring the outdoors as much as mine do; then The Tree House at Boschendal is the perfect outdoor experience for them.
As a family we love visiting the Cape Winelands. This past weekend we visited the beautiful Boschendal Farm and discovered that there are plenty of new and exciting things happening on the farm. Undoubtedly the day spent out at the farm was exceptional and below I give you some details of why I think Boschendal is a true iconic landmark winelands destination. View Post
For the past couple of years since we had kids; celebrating our wedding anniversary has always just been going out for dinner, a one-night stay over or going away with kids. With our busy work schedules, kids’ school activities and added responsibilities; it is not always easy to get away for a mid-week break on our own. This year however our wedding anniversary falls on a Friday and we are planning a short getaway without the kids. With so many great getaway options in the Western Cape; we narrowed down our list to 6 quick anniversary escape destinations of which we will select one. View Post

Brent and I had the privilege to be invited by Astral Foods, one of South Africa’s leading poultry producers, to celebrate their new partnership with World of Birds. We heard about the amazing work they have done thus far to assist World of Birds and their continued commitment to the sanctuary. It also gave us an opportunity to explore the bird park – which I have to confess was my first time. Apart from dropping my youngest daughter off outside of the sanctuary during her grade field trip – but I suppose that one time doesn’t count. I know I’m such a bad Capetonion. This gem with its tropical setting is the largest bird park in Africa and is situated in Hout Bay. After exploring the park; we had a scrumptious lunch at the Riverside Boutique Hotel in Hout Bay.
