backtracking the karoo

A decade ago, I set off on a 5 000-kilometre journey in a Suzuki Jimny, following the route of Jan Smuts’s raid on the Cape in 1901. The idea was a meandering back-road trip through the Karoo, using the famous book Commando by Deneys Reitz as my guide. The founding of Getaway in 1989 was a direct result of a series of backroading articles that appeared in Car, our sister magazine. The response from readers was so positive that the publisher felt a stand-alone roadtripping magazine might fly in the South African market. It was an inspired decision. Roadtripping has remained a cornerstone of this magazine ever since. Taking to the open road or, better still, getting off the beaten track lies at the heart of South African travel. The station wagon…

JACQUES MARAIS Most of Jacques outdoor mates and connections know him as #DieOom. ‘Let’s just say I’m pretty okay with that,’ he says. ‘With more than three decades of adventuring, I’ve also become a pretty okay photographer and photojournalist, mostly thanks to these self-same mates who often have to suffer my lens pointing at them in some beautiful corner of the world, so thanks for that.’ TIM BRINK Tim has been riding bicycles in far-flung corners of South Africa for more than 30 years, and writing about it for almost as long. His family firmly believes they come second. Obviously, that is not completely true all of the time. IGA MOTYLSKA Iga decided to try out the digital-nomad lifestyle and recently returned from a four-month stint in Europe and Asia. She only left Laos because…

Ajay Bhowandas Forest Falls near Graskop. Eksteen Jacobsz Meiringspoort [De Rust], after good rainfall. Nelia Smuts Cleopatra’s Waterfall in Wolkberg Nature Reserve, Limpopo. Martin Kerr Third (top) waterfall at Tweede Tol on the Bain’s Kloof Pass.

SCENT OF SPRING At long last summer weather arrived. I had become somewhat euphoric, hungry for sun and warmth and even hungrier for blossoms and fresh, green, growing things – and travelling to experience them. For this reason, I was grabbed by the words of the editor – ‘Go hug a tree’ (September 2019). Encouraging words, but also a refreshing read and a wake-up call. You did us such a favour by making us aware of another form of healthy outdoor recreation: shinrin-yoku or ‘forest bathing’. The joy of feeling at one with nature, getting out and about in the countryside, thinking about oneself – that is precisely what people today need most. It’s not only the kilometres covered that count when getting away, it’s also the depth of feeling inspired. You can…
