Local Travel is Lekker – Asha from Life By Asha Singh

If you’re a South African, I’m sure you’re familiar with the Local is Lekker phrase. It celebrates and promotes everything 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 exquisite country. This week’s featured blogger is Asha from Life By Asha Singh.   1) What do you love most about South Africa? I love how no matter where in SA I go, I feel so at home. You can have a lekker braai whether you’re in Western Cape or Limpopo and those tjops will be just as juicy! 2) What is your first local travel memory? 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?...

This week’s featured blogger is Inge from SA Family Friendly.   1) What do you love most about South Africa? I love that South Africa has so much to do – everyone will find something that appeals to them here. Fine dining, wine tours, deep sea fishing or tubing down a river? All possible here. 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...

This week’s featured blogger is Lauren from Wanderlust Movement.   1) What do you love most about South Africa? The vast and varied landscapes! 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...

This week’s featured blogger is Nadine from Living It Up CT.     1) What do you love most about South Africa? Gosh, where do I begin? There is so much to love about our beautiful Rainbow Nation. For me, it has to be the amazing abundance of flora and fauna, the wide open spaces and everything else that Mother Nature has to offer. I’m an outdoorsy person and love nothing more than spending time at the beach (yes, I swim in Cape Town’s frigid waters!) and going for mountain and forest hikes. It’s food for the soul. Table Mountain captured my heart from the moment Cape Town became our new home 12 years ago. Exploring South Africa’s spectacular winelands is something I do often and I enjoy discovering new wine estates.   2) What is your first local travel memory? Travelling on the train from Port Elizabeth, my original hometown, to Vereeniging to visit my sister and her family. As a kid, there was nothing more exciting than boarding that train with my Mom and younger brother – our Dad...

This week’s featured blogger is Meg from Boring Cape Town Chick.   1) What do you love most about South Africa? Diversity.  If you’re standing on the beach in Camps Bay, turn around, get in your car and drive 100kms to Franschhoek, you feel like you’re in a totally different world! Make it a 400km drive and you’re in the Wilderness, a wonderful lush, foresty jungle right next door to beautiful blue Knysna. Make it a plane ride and you’re in the grimy streets of Johannesburg. It’s inspiring and exciting! 2) What is your first local travel memory? I grew up in Namibia so my first South African travel memory is visiting Kruger National Park. My folks are from Zimbabwe so they love the hot, dry, dusty climate. Spotting animals has always been a wonderful family game and I still love doing it today! 3) What’s your favourite place to visit in your hometown? Tough one. I’m not much of a beach person, but will still have to say the ocean. Watching sunsets at Oudekraal are just spectacular. Walking...
