It has reached that point of the year that everybody is in dire need of a break. The stress of the year is becoming too much. Do not over stress yourself. Rather spoil yourself with a well-deserved break to build up the ever so needed energy to finish the year off. There is no better place to do this than at Trogon House.
Africa is such an awesome continent to visit especially as it is so unique. For a traveller looking to broaden his or her horizons and see a place they have never seen before this is the perfect continent. Unfortunately there is a general atmosphere of wariness sometimes accompanied with the continent. Africa still experiences a lot of poverty as it is filled with third-world countries. Therefor it can be frightening for tourist as poverty and crime go hand in hand.
Visiting the Kruger National Park is a definite must when visiting the beautiful South Africa. It is a park we South Africans take great pride in as all possible efforts are made to keep it natural and clean. A lot of outside investment is needed to keep the park poacher free so in going there you are also making a contribution to a great cause.
In our quest to experience first-hand or from nearby the cultures of those alien to us we have crossed borders all over the African continent. It is an extremely large continent though and the numbers of different cultures are many. Remember that we prefer to stick to what is true and natural and stay away from the pretentious cultural experiences.
Africa is obviously widely known and popular for its magnificent safari experiences. Africa is more than just safari though. It is a continent that has endured great struggle but at the same time it is a continent that has come an extremely far way. The culture is diverse, interesting and beautiful. We are not interested in fake cultural experiences where local people are made to dance and entertain tourists. The experiences we are interested in are those that give you true insight into how people live who have a completely contrasting culture compared to your own. Step into the lives of Africans…
South Africa has recently celebrated Woman’s Day and in this country it means quite a bit. It is no secret that South Africa and the African continent in general is not the safest place in the world. This is very true especially for woman who endure violence and suffering each day. This day does not only celebrate African Woman but also the struggle they go through. As safety is such a big thing, this blog is dedicated to safe places for woman to travel alone to.
Cape Town and in actual fact the entire South Africa have currently got so much to be thankful for. The Cape has been blessed with its desperately needed rain and there is light at the end of this scary tunnel called drought. In the spirit of rain and because it’s the end of July and we can start looking forward to spring, let’s go on a flower filled adventure.
Each year when spring hits, the Cape delivers proof of the winter rains in the form of flowers, hundreds of beautiful; colourful flowers. There are many ways to experience this gorgeous phenomenon and people come from all over the country, continent and globe to see this botanical masterpiece.
One of the world’s most breath-taking waterfalls can be found on the unique continent called Africa. It is, in actual fact, the greatest curtain of falling water in the world. This spectacular wonder from Mother Nature is called the Victoria Falls and it most definitely deserves a spot on your African Bucket List. Previously known by locals as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ that translates into “the smoke that thunders”.
