Come share our unique experiences of places in South Africa

My wife and I were born in Pretoria, one of the popular places in South Africa. Over the years we've collected a lot of valuable info about the Western Cape region. We have lived in the western cape for most of our lives and we've come to realize the value of "inside" information. When we travel to other countries we always check out some inside info first.

So we've decided to provide a website full of our knowledge.

What you will find in this site is mostly about the Western Cape because we know it so well. From Cape Town with it's famous table mountain, to the beautiful tranquillity of McGregor, to the tree giants of the Knysna forests, we've written a little bit (and sometimes a lot) about each one.
