This week’s featured blogger is Roelia who runs two blogs Social Savage (with her husband) and Boozy Foodie.   1) What do you love most about South Africa? The pure diversity – landscape, cultures, people.  There is a travel destination for everyone – from bungalows in the Kruger, to luxury suites in Sandton hotels, to backpacking in the Drakensberg. In one country you will find glorious beaches that goes on for miles, impressive and imposing mountain ranges, vineyards as far as the eye can see and the vast landscapes of the Karoo.  Truly magical, isn’t it? 2) What is your first local travel memory? Travelling to visit my Gran in the small little town of Adelaide, in the Eastern Cape.  In the middle of winter. My Dad preferred to drive at night, so I remember lying on the back seat – watching the brightest stars in the darkest night, barely moving.  And the soft soothing sound of the moving car lulling me to sleep.  Then, waking up with the smell of Gran’s freshly baked bread and moerkoffie.  Ahhh, happy place!...

The first time traveling I remember quite clearly was a trip to Joburg when I was 8. It was my first time on a plane so it was the most exciting and scary experience! For someone that had always lived in a small town it gave me a chance to experience the city and boy did I love it. 3) What’s your favourite place to visit in your hometown? I’m from the KZN South Coast and I would say my favourite place is just any beach. We have some stunning beaches like Margate and Hibberdine and they’re definitely my favourite thing on the South Coast. 4) What’s on your South African travel bucket list? In terms of places...

This week’s featured blogger is Jacqui from The Jax Blog.   1) What do you love most about South Africa? The people and the food. We have such a richly diverse melting pot of cultures in South Africa. This is clearly evident through our food. From the deliciously moreish biltong to the sweet aniseed koeksisters of the Cape Malay. Braai vleis (barbecue meat), milktart and everything in between, I can’t get enough! We’re a very hospitable crowd, us South Africans, and most social gatherings centre around food. 2) What is your first local travel memory? My first local trip would have to be when I was a wee tot and my parents road tripped off to Zululand. I reckon my incurable wanderlust is all their fault ;-) I couldn’t have been more than 2 at the time. My fondest memories of riding in a rickshaw and meeting a Zulu man in traditional garb. Never shy but always fascinated by other cultures, eager to learn more…some things never change ;-)   3) What’s your favourite place to visit in your hometown?...

If you can dream it, you can do it in South Africa. 2) What is your first local travel memory? My first local travel memory is of our family holiday in Tsitsikamma National Park. We went swimming in the protected cove, took long hikes and tried to catch the dassies (to no avail – they are way too sharp!). At night we would lie in our chalet and listen to the sea roar. It was magical. 3) What’s your favourite place to visit in your hometown? We love going to Lifestyle Nursery in Randpark Ridge, Johannesburg. We have a baby girl and she loves playing while we have a delectable breakfast at the Silver Birch. It is always jam-packed with parents and kids, so...

I love that you can get lost in the Drakensberg mountains, explore the rugged coastlines of the Eastern Cape, go on an adventure in the Kalahari desert, hike through the Amatola forests or relax on the pristine beaches of Clifton. Each time I come back from a trip, I’m reminded how lucky I am to come from a country that offers so much diversity. 2) What is your first local travel memory? I think my first travel memory would have to be taking the train to go to the coast with my mom or the Kruger Park with my dad. Not sure which came first.   3) What’s your favourite place to visit in your hometown? Although I was born in Johannesburg, I consider Cape Town to be my hometown now. So I would have to say my favourite place would be any of the hiking routes. There are so many to choose from, each...
