FRANSCHHOEK FIRE – 23 February 2017

For the past three days the fire fighters of nearby fire stations have been fighting a huge blaze that engulfed on of the near by mountains of Franschhoek. This forest fire made its way from the back of the mountain and right over to the Franschhoek side where vineyards and farms border. There were planes and helicopters in fighting from the air and men on the ground beating and creating fire breaks to make sure the fire was restricted to the mountainside. These men risk their lives everyday and are all the true heroes of Franschhoek.

THEEWATERSKLOOF DAM – Est. 1980 

The Theewaterskloof Dam was established in the year 1980 and located on the Sonderend River near Villiersdorp, Western Cape, South Africa. These exquisite waters are home to what once was a forest but it has now become a desert like graveyard for dead trees. A truly humbly place to visit that makes you feel unusually full of life as you stand in the middle of so many lifeless trees that reach up to the skies. It can’t help but make me wonder what the world will look like 50 years from now? Will all our forests be turned into barren wastelands like this one?

KHOTSO HORSE TRAILS AND ACCOMMODATION

Khotso is a working horse and sheep farm located on 1300 hectares of land at the foot of the Southern Drakensberg Mountains. Officially known as Tretower farm, this family run business has been operating for generations.
Originally sheep were the main source of income, however the constant attacks from jackal made it almost impossible to maintain a profit. It was decided that a backpackers and horse trails were the way forward and in the early 90s, Khotso opened her doors to the first travelers.

Since then, Khotso has grown to become the most established horse trail stables in the Southern Drakensberg, the most comfortable self-catering in KwaZulu-Natal and the most chilled out backpackers in South Africa.

Furthermore, with the addition of Smeagul, the Anatolian Shepard to the family, sheep have once again been reintroduced to the farm. Smeagul spends her nights with the flock, warding off any danger – successfully so, as jackal attacks over the past year can be counted on one hand. What started with 15 sheep 4 years ago is now a healthy flock of around 250 sheep and 118 buzzing little lambs!

Soon you will also be able to purchase a small part of Khotso in the form of a bottle, when the water bottling plant starts producing some of the best bottled water in the country.

SCUBA DIVING SOUTH AFRICA

A few months back I went for a spectacular dive at Aliwal Shoal. The Indian Ocean was calm and the visibility was +/- 20 meters. This was my first scuba dive as a certified Padi Open-Water Level 1 Scuba Diver and I was able to document the amazing animals that I saw during this underwater adventure. This spectacular Reef is home to some rare and interesting marine life and has been a well-loved Dive Spot for numerous divers from South Africa and abroad. I was able to see an array of animals including Oceanic Black-Tip Sharks, Sand-Tiger Sharks, a Sea Turtle and many species of fish during the dive.
