Sea Xplore: Scuba diving at Sodwanna Bay

My team was stuck. We had decided to take a short cut to Sodwanna bay through a game reserve and, since the road less traveled is always more fun, we had gotten stuck in the mud. The guys jumped out... Continue Reading →

Into the Blue – a seal adventure in Cape Town

As November rolled around I was anxiously scrolling through my Entertainer's app to find something fun to do for my husband's birthday.  My fast paced, adventurous hubby is not exactly the type you can entertain with a beer and a... Continue Reading →

My Bungalow Haven – East Africa Safaris

I ran up the last few steps to the deck in front of the restaurant where the rest of my crew were hanging out. We had arrived the previous night after dark and it was their first glimpse of the resort in daylight. By the looks on their faces I could tell that they were in love with the place.

Paddle Skiing in Mozambique

You are guaranteed to have a great time especially if you have a group of adventurous people who are open to trying new things. This is a fun activity that will cost you R100 ($7) per hour. The exercise and muscle stiffness the next day is complementary. Plus you will get the coolest pictures of you doing more than just reading a book on the beach.

Shopping at Xai Xai market – a beginner’s guide

We ran out of milk, so under normal circumstances I would hop in the car and head for the nearest shopping mall armed with a list of the things we need around the house and a bank card in my purse. Not so in Mozambique. Yes, there are shops in Mozambique and you can get everything you need if you are in town, but that would just be boring and we don't do boring. We headed for the Xai Xai market instead. I have been to the market at Maputo and expected something similar to it - rows of vegetables and a few shops selling everything from birds to hair extensions, maybe a shop or two selling African art... was I in for a surprise!
