get some perspective

It’s easy to work yourself into a rut if you do the same thing day after day. The rut might become a ditch, then a trench, and when you lift your head to look around, you’re in a dark canyon. You might be able to stare ahead, maybe even glance back, but the three-dimensional world seems out of reach. This is one of the reasons why travel is so good for you. It allows you to breathe deeply and regain perspective. Recently, I went camping in the Krokodilpoort Nature Reserve near Mbombela in Mpumalanga, and I had to catch a flight back to Cape Town from the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA). I realised again why KMIA is my favourite airport. It loves to brag about the fact it has the biggest thatch…

behind the scenes

Your favourite way to travel? I love the outdoors – camping and hiking. But with a new baby at home, those pursuits had to go on the back burner for a while. Now that my son Zac has turned two, I want to get out there again. At home, I’m a bookworm who likes to garden, sew and watch movies. And I love a good pasta. What have you got in store for us on the food pages? I like dishes that look impressive, but which are easy to prepare. I want to create recipes that will inspire people to cook, whether it’s in a self-catering unit or over a campfire. And hopefully always in a relaxed atmosphere and surrounded by hungry loved ones! Which ingredients do you never leave home without? Olive…

upfront

On Vespas, to vistas My husband and I recently did an amazing ride on our old Vespa scooters – a Primavera 125 and a 200 PX – from Mossel Bay to Oudtshoorn, over the Swartberg Pass and onward to Prince Albert, where we spent the night. The next day, we went through Meiringspoort, Dysselsdorp, Herold and over the old Montagu Pass back to Mossel Bay. The Vespas handled the dirt roads and passes like pros. We were able to see the stunning scenery up close and stopped often to photograph the beautiful views. When we stopped to have coffee in Meiringspoort, a Cape rock thrush (inset) hopped onto one of the Vespas to have a look. It was an amazing trip! HELEN BRINK, Mossel Bay Namibia, you good thing! We often go camping in Namibia. Recently,…

q&a

City slicker? Q ARTHUR MISKIN from Pretoria writes: My daughter Morgan took this photo from her bedroom window in Pretoria. She lives adjacent to the koppies of Pretoria Boys’ High School, which is a fairly dense, wooded area. Is it common to see spotted eagle-owls in cities? A Bird expert FAANSIE PEACOCK says: This is a beautiful picture of a spotted eagle-owl! This species is a relatively common urban predator throughout South Africa, and has managed to survive wherever small pockets of natural habitat persist in otherwise developed areas. In fact, they often roost and even nest on buildings – pictures of perky owlets perched on pot plants or windowsills are always circulating on social media. One of the reasons why spotted eagle-owls have managed to retain a foothold in cities is that…

garden route recovers from veld fires

The parts of the Garden Route National Park that were damaged by fires in June 2017 and October last year have recovered to such an extent that hiking and mountain-biking trails have been reopened to the public. This includes the Kranshoek day hike and the two-day Harkerville Coast Hiking Trail. The popular Red Route mountain-biking trail in Harkerville has also been reopened. According to Nico Oosthuizen, section ranger at Harkerville, local cyclists who regularly ride the trail are impressed with the repair and maintenance work done since the fire of 2017. The 22 km route is the most technical of the four MTB trails in Harkerville, but it’s also one of the most scenic in South Africa, thanks to varying views of fynbos, forest and the Indian Ocean. SANParks scientists and environmental…
