Italian fans

We've been hard at work developing and refining our fantastic new tour called "Sex & Slaves in The City".

Well, she was still with us 2 hours later when Dean completed the tour...

The reality of Cape Town slavery

Most of us are aware that there were slaves at The Cape some time in the past. But how much do you know about the reality of slavery? I am amazed that slavery even existed. The idea of owning another human being is bizarre and reminds us of the baser side of human nature.Do you know that children could be sold as slaves separately from their mothers? In about 1657 Jan van Riebeeck was given the gift of a slave by the name of Clein Eva. She was 5 years...

Wild cape wander: Table Mountain, South Africa

Travelmag published this story “. . . the clothing, skull and bones of the soldier given up for lost on the 30th of last month were found at the extremity of the Lion Mountain, about 300 roods* from the beach.

There’s a first time for everything. In decades of guiding I have never had guests from Malta – until this week. I am currently escorting the Zammit (extended) family around Cape Town. Yesterday we travelled along The Atlantic Seaboard, over Chapman’s Peak . . .. . . to The Cape Point Nature Reserve. We were extremely lucky with wonderful weather and I think everyone enjoyed it (even Amanda who was not feeling 100% healthy).We stopped above Smitswinkelbaai to enjoy the views across False Bay and learn a little about this...

The ultimate day

There is ongoing debate as to whether day 4 or day 5 of The Mountains in The Sea is the more breathtaking. It’s a tough call. Have a look at this photo taken on day 5, and formulate your own opinion. We started the trail above “Patience Bay” with views onto - and memories of - yesterday’s descent. In spite of the (very easy) ascent Ken still had a smile, and so did everyone else. Perhaps the smiles had something to do with the views that greeted us at every...
