A forest getaway at Platbos

A forest getaway at Platbos[Ruth Cooper] A two-hour drive from Cape Town, and just past the city of Stanford, is a magical green oasis in the form of an ancient milkwood forest. Somewhat of an anomaly this lush 40 hectare forest has survived and flourished against all odds and is the largest remaining fragment of the Swartkransberg Forests and Africa's southernmost forest.

The Swiss Adventure Part 2 - Curling and Klosters

The Swiss Adventure Part 2 - Curling and Klosters[Ruth Cooper] Day two in Switzerland dawned clear and sunny with not a cloud in the sky or a whisper of wind; however, it was still cold enough to make you catch your breath when first stepping out of any form of heating.

The Swiss adventure part 1 - A day in Davos

The Swiss adventure part 1 - A day in Davos[Ruth Cooper] The crack of virgin snow, your boots the first to break the pure. Inhale the air so fresh and damp; fill your lungs and exhale a puff of icy smoke. It's all so still, so silent, the crunch crunch of footsteps the only sound.

Old school class at Winchester Mansions

Old school class at Winchester Mansions[Ruth Cooper] Stepping foot into the Sea Point boutique hotel the Winchester Mansions really feels as if one is stepping back in time. The retro 70s' d├ęcor of the rooms will have you wishing you wore a sparkly flared jumpsuit, so as to fit in all the better.

Sail away at the PortsWood Hotel[Eugene Yiga] Given that it's located at the V&A Waterfront, perhaps it's not surprising that the PortsWood, one of two dozen Legacy Group hotels across Africa, has a nautical theme.

Once in Cape Town: Where youth hostel meets hotel[Ilse van den Berg] As most people probably should know, our beloved Mother City was rated number one on the prestigious New York Times' 52 Places to go in 2014 list. She just somehow never disappoints. This of course has resulted in many, many new and returning travellers wanting to explore and soak up everything Cape Town has to offer.
