Safari’s out in Africa are my favourite! I am a total bush baby and would quite easily trade a tropical paradise getawayÂ for some bush time!
Having gone on a few epic Safari’s, I’ve learnt a lot that has helped me “get ready” for the next one! -October I’m counting down the days-.
Every time I travel, I always write a list of things to remember! Things like “bring extra mozzi spray – you will need it” and “don’t forget to pack a pair of boots next time” help when I’m packing or planning my next trip.
In this case, my next safari!View Post

I’ve just returned from the most incredible bush adventure! Four days out inÂ Africa, getting up close and personal with all her beautiful creatures, just roaming around a few inches from the protection of our Landrover. Before our trip, I popped intoÂ Old Khaki (of course) to pickÂ out some bush-ready, summer-ready and style savvy pieces and I couldn’t resist thisÂ gorgeous fringed Cardi. Isn’t it justÂ the cutestÂ summer cover-up? It was perfect forÂ our evening game drives! Since I had bush veld on the brain, byÂ pure stroke of luck and perfect timing, I alsoÂ found this floppy bush hatÂ while I was there, whichÂ was just the cherry on top! It will defs becomeÂ my bush adventure staple from now on!Â I wore it on almost every game drive and itÂ kept me cool, protected from the sun and thanks to the little drawstring I didn’t lose it. And theÂ colour… perfecto! Look at that frrrrriiiinge! Obsessed! We had such a blast! This wasÂ part of our groupÂ racing to catch the lioness before she movedÂ away on our last game drive evening. We were incredibly blessed to have seen it all… We spotted theÂ entire big five entourage… Lions, Leopard, Buffalo, Elephant and Rhino, as well as a whole lot more. I wasn’t too fond…View Post
By the time you read this post, I’m already atÂ one of my favourite places on earth… the wild, African bush! The hubs and I, together with ten of our friends are spending a few days connecting with nature! I’m a total bush baby, and one of the big benefits of living in beautiful South Africa, is that “the wild” is only a few hours drive. I’ve been on a lot of safari trips and game drives, but nothing compares to the experience we’re heading for… A private bush camp in the Timbevati that’s totally disconnected from distractions. There is no TV, no internet, and best of all, no cellphone reception at all, so you really get to disconnect from the outside world and enjoy your trip. This will be myÂ fourth time at this game reserve, which is always the best bush experience.Â On past trips we’ve seen leopards mating, white lions and a cheetah trying to climb up a tree to enjoy its prey, only to have it snatched by the sneaky hyena’s. Â On almost every trip, we’ve seen all of the big five and it’s beenÂ amazing! What to WearÂ on a Game Drive Ok, first up a safari, or as we…View Post
Watch out, wild women coming this way. The 1970Â´s Africa safari revival was a tribute to the 19th century European “Scramble for Africa”.Â You could almost see it now, hungry lions licking their lips as the adventurers braved the mysterious jungles and exotic Savannah’s (sans cellphones and GPS!).Â This crazy mix of danger and adventure fuelled the minds of the worlds creatives, leading to a romanticised view of Africa under the umbrella word “Safari.” Designers cottoned onto the Safari trend and begun churning out clothes so fans could emulate their favourite stars as seen in classic movies like African Express. The designer of note though, was Yves Saint Laurent, who went one step further and created his now signature Safari Suit for woman. ItÂ´s classic, timeless and always in style.Â Just like…well, Indiana Jones.Â It seems to just keep coming back in fashion. This Spring/Summer is no exception. Before you pack your bags for those lost African kingdoms, mysterious tribes and ferocious wildlife, Indiana Jane, letÂ´s see what South African designers and stores have for you.Â Below are the basics, pieces made of natural fabrics that are the start to your adventurous new look.Â The basics consist of the ferocious…View Post
