When I received an invitation to visit The Coffee Bru, a coffee shop and restaurant set in the Kragga Kamma Game Park, I was excited for two reasons – firstly, I’m a self-confessed coffeeholic and I’m always on the lookout for new coffee shops to visit, and secondly, I could never turn down an invitation to eat food! I happily accepted the invitation, and on Sunday, Arnold and I travelled the Kragga Kamma Road that leads to the coffee shop tucked away in the bush of the Bay’s very own game park.
Last week, I attended the Nelson Mandela Bay Tourism Members ‘Tourism Experiences’ Workshop at Broughton Country Estate. The event brought together some of the best of the best in the tourism industry in the Bay, and it was a great opportunity to meet people who are excited about tourism in our city. The workshop was facilitated by Shaun van Eck a.k.a. The Tourism Coach, and during the workshop, he posed the following question to us: “What attracts visitors to Nelson Mandela Bay?” After a brief discussion, some of the delegates shared what they think attracts holidaymakers to the bay, and it made me realise how much Nelson Mandela Bay natives love their city!
Every now and then, you need to step back, get away from it all so that you can breath and find your zest for life again. That’s exactly what my family and I did a few weekends ago when we packed our bags and swapped a weekend in the city of PE for a weekend of fresh air in Addo.
Two weeks ago, my fiancé and I stayed at Lazy Leopard Forest Retreat in Knysna, and we had the privilege of staying in their Forest Moon chalet. I wanted to share our holiday with you, because this romantic and secluded forest retreat was so beautiful, that I couldn’t possibly keep the experience to myself.
