[Ilse van den Berg] About 30 minutes out of Cape Town en route to Tulbagh, I look in the rearview mirror and see my sister's face, happily stuck between my two nephews on either side of her. But, we all know these moments don't last very long...
[Brian Berkman] When your chef has 'live to cook' tattooed down his forearm, the expectation of something delicious to eat is already set. Add to that reports that he worked in starred restaurants in Europe and at Ellerman House in Cape Town, Omar Koenen - the recently appointed head chef at AtholPlace Hotel & Villa in Johannesburg - has a pretty high bar to clear.

[Mareike Pietzsch] As we hit the N12, we leave the Garden Route's cool breeze behind us. The last time I see the ocean is in George and I give it a wistful wave. I'm not sure what to expect from the Klein Karoo.
[Ruth Cooper] Tucked away in the suburbs of Paarl, you will find The Light House Boutique Suites. A beautiful boutique hotel which is both charming and homely, yet incredibly luxurious and glamorous and all topped with personalised and attentive service.

Last week Radisson RED hosted The BIG GIG, to celebrate how successful the hotel has been since launching in September 2017.
[Boris Dzhingarov] Accidental injury is the worst thing that can happen to you when you are abroad in an unfamiliar environment. Not only will you be far away from friends and family, you will have no access to your usual doctor or local hospital..
[Ruth Cooper] The heat slams your entire body in a suffocating, damp caress as soon as you step out of the plane's air-conditioned coolness; immediately curling hair into little frizzy ringlets and dew-ifying the face. It's overwhelming for a Capetonian used to fresh sea breezes and dry heats - Jambo Zanzibar, there is no mistaking we have arrived upon your welcoming shores!
[Ruth Cooper] Tucked away in the suburbs of Stellenbosch is Majeka House, a hidden oasis of luxury, filled with a lush garden, beautiful and uniquely styled rooms, exquisite dining, a glamorous spa and, oh yes, countless pigs.
