In April 2013, I found myself with no plans for the Easter holidays, but I had recently been in touch with an old school friend, living in Johannesburg, whom I hadn’t seen for years. So, when he asked me to visit, I didn’t hesitate to book a nine-day holiday to Johannesburg and Cape Town.


Back home, my father was so enchanted by my pictures with lion cubs taken at a city lion park, that he decided he wanted for all of us to return together. I suggested going on a proper safari, as we had never been on one, and it would be an amazing experience for my son, a unique five-year-old with an unusual passion for animals and nature.


Before I knew it, I booked to stay at a safari lodge for the half term holiday in May, and we were off – having the experience of a lifetime and meeting many incredible people. When we departed, we felt as though we were leaving part of ourselves in the bush.


With the summer holidays looming and my son going away, the choice was obvious: South Africa was calling me again. This time, I wanted to do some community work, as well as catch up with the friends I had already made. The only thing holding me back was the thought that I had never been on holiday on my own. But I knew the place and had good contacts, so I took a deep breath and headed back.



Spend the afternoon by one of the peaceful dams, rod in hand, a picnic and refreshing drink by your side, most probably in the company of some curious hippos.
