Your Next Great Adventure | Rhino Asia

There’s nothing quite like Victoria Falls from a helicopter

_DSC0412 1

“There’s something about a Gin & Tonic, the call of the African Fish Eagle and a tangerine, sunset sky that just has to resonate somewhere in you.” Such are the words of one of our inspired explorers below. And as you’ll see, as the last of our new consultants bring you the final glories of […]

Where there’s smoke there’s… Victoria Falls

Where there’s smoke there’s… Victoria Falls

“Even the greatest literary masters would certainly have fallen silent facing such majestic and everchanging scenery. A human being is totally incapable of describing Mother Nature where she performs with such a might as at the Victoria Falls – there, Man just has to adore her!” - Dr Emil Holub Last week we were in Botswana; this […]

Where The Elephants Roam – A Chobe Safari

Adventures on the Chobe River

The Chobe River. My first encounter with her included the longest curtain of elephants I’d ever seen, elephants big and small crossing her width like proficient snorkellers seemingly unfettered by the crocodiles and hippos sticking their eyes out here and there. I thought my experience was unique. But such is the scene on the vast […]

Tanzania | The Grass is Greener on the Other Side

The Great Migration | Serengeti National Park

Lazying in their tv rooms, watching the Academy Awards with their hands hovering over microwave popcorn, the majority of couch spectators couldn’t care less who earns the title of best make-up or costume design. We put up with the bulk of the broadcast because we’re waiting for the juicy bits, listening for those magic words: […]

My Trip | The First Sip is the Deepest

My Trip: Thomases

I’ve never met Mark and Anne Thomas but I’m ninety nine percent sure we’d hit it off. They like travelling. I like travelling. They like wine. I like wine. Their surname is Thomas.

Lion’s Head | The Best Hike in Cape Town

Lion’s Head

The combination of hiking and talking does not come easily to me. In my experience the duo is never pretty or remotely graceful. Optimism, however, is something I have in truck loads, which is why when our copyrighter Tamlin “Poodle” Wightman suggested climbing Lion’s Head I was all in. It was not so much the […]

Holiday To-Do List #2: AfriCanyon

AfriCanyon in Plettenberg Bay

The trick is to hide your fear. The water was cold enough to excuse my constant shaking and could also explain the occasional girlish squeal. I held onto my mother’s hand tightly with one hand and the rope with the other (blisters forming from gripping too hard in fright). Everyone knows it’s better to be […]

Holiday To-Do List #1: Babylonstoren

Babylonstoren

Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road Healthy, free, the world before me  – Walt Whitman The few days of holiday over Christmas and New Year’s are meant to relax you, the hard-working employee.

Dude, Where’s My Baboon?

RhinoTripping

“A baboon in a forest is a matter of legitimate speculation; a baboon in a zoo is an object of public curiosity; but a baboon in your wife’s bed is a cause of the gravest concern.” - Winston Churchill There are certain certain things in Cape Town. Certain things you can be certain of. For instance, you […]
