  • cape town :: lion’s head hike & manna epicure

    As we left the safari experience of a lifetime behind us, I could only hope that a few days in Cape Town could mend my broken heart, already missing the people and animals we fell in love with. Thankfully, we’d heard wonderful things about Cape Town, and it lived up to our expectations and more – from the beautiful beaches and mountains, the wildlife and nature, to the incredible restaurant scene and warm-hearted locals, it’s a place I’d return to over and over.

    Although it wasn’t the first thing we did in CT, I wanted to start off with a bang and introduce you to the city with these stunning views. First impressions count for something!

  • our south african safari

    Before we get started, I have to warn you that this is probably the most photo-heavy blog post you’ll probably ever read, at least on WTW. Hopefully, you’ll enjoy looking at them as much as I do, and I’ll try to keep my “talking” to the minimum and let the pictures speak for themselves. 

    Having said that, the photographs are very much a one dimensional memory of the experience – you can’t capture the different auras, quirks and unique behaviours of each animal anywhere close to how it feels in real life. I’ve compiled a very casual, non-edited video of the clips we took, which hopefully captures some of that magic. 

    So! Safari. How can I put this into words? It was so far beyond what I expected. We were excited to see the animals in the wild, and that’s about all we knew of the safari experience. But my goodness, it is so much more. I know that a lot had to do with the lodge we chose to stay in, so let me tell you a little bit about Toro Yaka Bush Lodge
