That moment in time when time and everything stops, soft music starts to play, Your heart starts pounding slower and slower. You take a quick look around and the only thought flowing
through your mind is "How amazing this moment is" -That moment is Priceless 💙
In a little under a months time I celebrate five years on this planet as a vegan 🥦♥️ (here’s looking at you @keribainborough ). Like most herbivores, i still deal with a barrage of questions about it when meeting new people and landing on the topic of food but I’ve also seen the Vegan food scene and community explode in options, numbers and diversity. We’ve come a looong way. (No longer are we subjected to the “sides” menu when eating out 😂). Some places have some catching up to do sure, and we are still the butt of allll the jokes, but I like to think that the acceptance and consciousness of the importance of this movement and lifestyle has really gained traction. Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, cutting down on your animal products, doing meat free Monday or even trying to understand where your food comes from: it’s all something, every step you take, however small, is still a step. The end of factory farming and animal cruelty may be a pipe dream, but dreams are important, they give us an ideal to strive towards... and at the end of the day at least we can say we really gave a shit. 📷 by my favourite vegan, @keanebalt
We can forgive these giraffes for having their backs to us when they're looking this good! 😎 These retreating locals were spotted within Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park in the Northern Cape by photographer Hamish Mitchell via @natgeoespana.
📍 The easiest way to get to the Kgalagadi is to fly to Upington (with daily flights from both Cape Town and Jo'Burg) and then hire a car and drive yourself to the park, which is around 124 miles away. #MeetSouthAfrica

Our fabulous guest @lalarudge making friends and enjoying the magnificent views of the Franschhoek Valley at @laresidencesa.
**WHAT’S ON IN UMHLANGA** Christmas is around the corner which means the weekends will soon become jam packed with fun events and activities and we thought we would keep you posted with all the fun things happening in our area.
Taking a well deserved rest after a big meal... We found this young female #leopard (Panthera pardus) resting on a warmly baked rock as the sun went down. She was panting heavily and after some investigation we found she had a carcass stashed in a nearby tree which was almost finished! 📷 by Kobus Erasmus | Lion Mountain Media 🔛 visit http://www.lionmountain.tv
Happy new week everyone🌻| Had to jump out of the safari vehicle and get an action shot of me running into the distance or running towards the vehicle! Also, the zebras grazing in the distance and the contrast of the blue sky and the green and brown tones of the grass were calling out to me!
I’m always wondering who directed (as in who’s creative vision was this?) and shot the photo (execution of the vision) when I see a beautiful photo📸 | Thanks for this vid @thobi_rose. What’s the first thing you think when you see a beautiful photo?

One of the 3 brothers had made a kill and the others tried their luck 🦁

Whilst they may eat a lot, giraffes don’t drink much water. This is because they get most of their water from their leafy meals, and only need to drink once every few days. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We trust you've had a fantastic weekend! We're starting the week by revealing (confessing to) a few things which you should know before booking a tour with us:
1) We are coffee and red cappuccino snobs. ☕️ Life is too short for anything weak and flavourless.
2) We do enjoy stopping from time to time to admire beautiful things. Sometimes it is blossoming beside the road and other times it may be crawling across.
3) We believe it is important to consider the environment and to show respect to the locals - including the feathered, furry or scaly variety!
4) When you prioritise your own relaxation by booking an adventure with us, it should be memorable in every way and not be rushed.
You're most welcome to contact us: Tel: +27 071 892 8459. Email: email@example.com
Just an elephant casually crossing a body of water.
Elephants extend their trunks to use them as snorkels when they walk through deep water. It is the only animal that can effectively snorkel on its own.

Hakuna Moscato... It means "drink wine and be merry".
The first vines were planted on the Cape by Dutch colonists, and today South Africa ranks ninth among the biggest wine-producing countries in the world.
If you're an oenophile and want to enjoy a fabulous afternoon tasting great wines, nibbling on a cheese platter and gazing at amazing scenery, try Constantia Glen, a beautiful vinyard just 20 minutes drive out of Cape Town. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I myself am parital to reds, how about you? Red, white or rosé?
Thank you @liorinsa for the great recommendations and for planning our trip from A to Z.

День 13. ЮАР. Кейптаун. Ботанический сад Kirstenbosch, подъём на Lion's Head и Signal Hill.
На фото её величество королевская протея - национальный цветок ЮАР. Местные жители называют её "горшок мёда" за большое количество нектара внутри. В ЮАР рай для протейных растений, здесь они цветут круглый год, каждый сезон разные виды. Мы застали весенний период в ботаническом саду, тысячи цветов смотрели на нас со склонов. За 3 часа успели погулять в тумане, под дождём и солнцем 😂Рекомендую это место к посещению.
Не пропустите Boomslang - 130 метровый мост на уровне верхушек деревьев, извивается как змея.
Сувенирный магазин Kirstenbosch один из лучших в городе, особенно если вы любите цветочные принты.
А в ресторане Moyo можно отведать традиционные африканские блюда, кроме рыбы я решилась погрызть гусениц ☺️ Если не видели сториз - смотрите Highlights ЮАР Ч2 🙌
После обеда мы отправились покорять Lion's Head. Встречные люди очень удивлялись, что мы идём туда с маленькими детьми 🤪 Но что было делать, если у всех есть желание дойти до вершины?! О подъеме я напишу отдельный пост, а пока всем желаю отличной недели 💛
Я настолько насытилась разными впечатлениями в поездке, что с удовольствием погрузилась в работу ☺️ Почти перегорела в этом путешествии 🤪 У вас такое бывало? Или вы готовы бесконечно отправляться в путь?
To the surprise of absolutely no one, Cape Towns' Table Mountain is a stunner from every angle! 💚 Pictured is the iconic @capegracehotel, situated on its own quay along the V&A Waterfront in the heart of the harbour. Photo by @nathybougleux#MeetSouthAfrica
Reflecting back over the last few months, I could never have even imagined what was coming the day I moved into my apartment in Cape Town and I have no doubt this time next year, I’ll be saying the same thing. The people I’ve met over the last few months have been and continue to be my greatest inspiration.
I’m so grateful for everything that has been but I know there is so much more ahead; so we press on, faithfully, thoughtfully, one step at a time. My eyes are open, lead the way.
