In 2018 I sold my house, put most of my belongings in storage and embarked on the trip of my dreams. The plan was to only travel for one year before settling down again somewhere. More than two years later I’m still travelling!

During this time I’ve driven more than 40 000 kilometres around South Africa exploring the beauty of this wonderful and diverse country. On these pages I’d like to share my experience.

South Africa can satisfy the needs of any type of traveller. I’ve always been a keen explorer and my earlier travels have taken me to many destinations. However, there were always those places which held some intrigue, but somehow I’d never made the time or taken the effort to go there. This trip has been all about getting to those lesser-known gems. A bucket-list trip of sorts.

On this site you’ll see some of the most picturesque and remote places in South Africa. I’ll give the reasons why the places are worth a visit and, through my interest in photography, try and show you what I saw.

Most people who travel are on a tight budget. So am I! I’ll also share with you my camping setup and how I’ve managed to stretch my budget so that I could carry on travelling as long as possible.

Fuel, accommodation and food are the main expenses on any trip. Planning an efficient route, finding affordable accommodation and making inexpensive and easy meals will all be dealt with as the site grows.
