Serene and superb Sanbona
Serene and superb Sanbona

It's a still-and-sunny Saturday afternoon, golden light bathes the bush, the smell of Renosterveld fynbos and dust is in the air as we silently approach a wild cheetah family gorged on a recently felled eland. The family (mother and kids) are lethargic stuffed full of the kill and sensibly enjoying an afternoon rest up after their large family lunch.

Become a fan of Fancourt
Become a fan of Fancourt

Imagine soft green mounds, rolling hills, wispy clouds, the gentle caress of the sun on your cheek, the sound of chirping birds and the nee-yow of golf carts in the distance. Imagine this and you might have a pretty good idea of what it might be like to stand overlooking the lush green grounds of Fancourt, the premier leisure resort on the Garden Route on a still-and-sunny winter's day morning.

Le good life at Le Franschhoek

Franschhoek has always been a town I felt an affinity towards; the sophisticated French cousin to my hip Mother City if you will. With great food, wine, art, culture and scenery it's hard not to be seduced by her many charms.

It's a picture perfect Sunday morning in Camps Bay and I'm lying down on a concrete slab in approximately 4% of clothing, being hosed and scrubbed down by a wetsuit-wearing hands-of-steel warrior.
