Local Travel is Lekker – Meletso Blog

If you’re a South African, I’m sure you’re familiar with the Local is Lekker phrase. It celebrates and promotes everything proudly South African. This phrase was the inspiration for a new series on my blog – Local Travel is Lekker. I’m an avid supporter of local South African travel and feel extremely blessed to live in this beautiful country. Therefore I’ve decided to feature like-minded bloggers and travellers who share my Local Travel is Lekker sentiment and hopefully this series will inspire our South African citizens to get out there and explore this stunning country. This week’s featured bloggers are Nicole and TC from Meletso.   1) What do you love most about South Africa? South Africa is one of the most colourful countries in the world, from our flag to our people to nature.  All the beauty both natural and man-made, there is also so much to do in South Africa from hiking to witnessing the big five (even better whilst hot air ballooning), visiting our museums and we also are home to 8 World Heritage Sights not to mention the 7th world wonder Table Mountain. Our country has such a diverse landscape and a richer heritage. I love the beautiful sunrises and sunsets that many tend to enjoy over a glass of our incredible wine and cuisine. 2) What is your first local travel memory? The memory that first comes to mind is when I was 8 years old; I went on holiday with my family in Cape Town. I recall the cold water from the ocean and that I never wanted to swim. 3) What’s your favourite place to visit in...

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.

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?...
