The Big Cats and Crocodiles of Cango Wildlife Ranch in Oudtshoorn (2017-07-04) | Celebrating over 30 years of conserving and caring for endangered animal species, the Cango Wildlife Ranch (which originally started life out as a crocodile show farm), is one of the now very iconic Oudtshoorn attractions for visiting families - after all, which small kid is ever ...

The Stalactites and Stalagmites of Cango Caves in Oudtshoorn (2017-07-05) | Caves and ostriches, that is pretty much what immediately comes to mind if you think of Oudtshoorn, and rightfully so - no tourist visit or holiday with kids to the largest town in the Little Karoo is complete without having visited at least one ostrich ...

Craft Beer and Play at Grass Roof in Port Elizabeth (2017-07-08) | If you are ever out in the Port Elizabeth area and find yourself in need of a good kid friendly restaurant option, be extra sure to pay the exceedingly cool Grass Roof farm stall and coffee shop a visit.

Celebrating Mother's Day with a Picnic in Green Point Park, Cape Town (2018-05-13) | Instead of the usual big Sunday lunch at one of our houses with the rest of the family for Mother's Day, this year Chantelle came up with the idea of getting everyone together for a big celebratory picnic - settling on the gorgeous Green Point ...

USA 2016 - 20 Cabrillo National Monument in San Diego (2016-07-18) | One of the best views of San Diego's harbour and skyline can be found at the Cabrillo National Monument - in fact, a clear day will actually give you a good view over a wide expanse of the Pacific Ocean, Tijuana, and even Mexico's Coronado Islands! Situated at ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Following the Cliff Path of the Hermanus Biodiversity Walk (2017-08-09) | Hermanus is probably the best place for land based whale watching in the Western Cape (which is why we find ourselves visiting at least once a year), and its beautifully maintained Cliff Path makes this relaxing activity all that more better. Although originally constructed by the ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Pizza at the Lake House in Somerset Lakes, Somerset West (2017-11-12) | Standing right next to the newly opened Reddam House Somerset West boarding school, Somerset Lakes is a pretty good looking gated residential estate that has sprouted up on the outskirts of Somerset West - mind you, as a LOT of others have also done over the last ...

Roosterkoek Burgers at the Old Gaol on Church Square in Swellendam (2018-01-05) | The last time that we had visited the Old Gaol on Church Square restaurant in Swellendam it was raining.

Strolling around Sonstraal Dam in Durbanville (2017-08-05) | Going for an afternoon stroll around Sonstraal Dam whilst feeding the ducks is somewhat of an institution for any family with small kids in Durbanville, and seeing as this is something that we did back when we were kids, there is no reason not to ...

Boyes Drive and a Year-end Function at Outspan in Kalk Bay (2016-12-06) | I've already mentioned that last year's Touchwork and Hypenica year end function saw the teams go tropical and enjoy a colourful Hawaiian themed get together (complete with a belly dancing routine for some or other reason) at the Monkey Valley Resort in Noordhoek. What I hadn't realised (thanks ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
