If you have outdoorsy, fun-loving, adventure-seeking kids like ours, then you HAVE to make a plan to visit Boschendal as a family. Go through for the morning to grab a takeaway coffee and deli treats while the kids enjoy free play at The Tree House playground and bring the bikes to hit the the mini pump track (no charge if you bring your own bikes but there is a bike rental option). This is for kids age 4+.Continue Reading
Have you ever been on a game drive or taken your kids to the bush? To be honest, it’s always been on our bucket list but it always just felt a little out of reach – I mean Kruger is quite a drive from Cape Town and anything closer is for the tourists? Well, I have good news! We are reminiscing about the most incredible weekend away at Garden Route Game Lodge in Albertinia, a short 3.5 hour drive from Cape Town and is just perfect for a family bush adventure.Continue Reading
This weekend we beat our previous family record of 5.5 hours of non-stop play at Bugz Playpark!

We were invited to spend the last weekend of the school holidays (and admittedly the busiest sporting weekend in recent history) at Tumbleweed Cottage in McGregor which gave us the opportunity to explore the little village as a family. After three weeks of staycationing at home, the kids were very eager to go on an adventure and visit McGregor. Yes, the little ones may have been misguided in thinking that McGregor was the garden that Peter Rabbit kept sneaking into, but Ilan knew that McGregor was a real place and the home of Ziggy, his class-sponsored donkey from Grade R. Either way, we were all ready to hit the road and discover a new place.
I was pretty convinced that there wouldn’t be a single decent smiling photo from our recent family shoot with Tabs from Grand Little Adventure, but I was so wrong! Our Kira can be four seasons in ten minutes and her chaotic behaviour properly threw out our family dynamics and set the boys off. The morning could have been a disaster, but Tabs was so relaxed and calm that she just subtly snapped away in the background and managed to capture some beautiful moments in the midst of a busy morning with young kids. I just LOVE these pics!Continue Reading
