Cruise Along the South African Coastline to Experience my Country

Enjoy a cocktail while you enjoy your cruise.
South Africans love their cruises. MSC Cruises South Africa, which has been offering cruises from South Africa for many years,  offers a fun way of exploring the South African and African coastlines.  Cruises usually depart from either the Durban or Cape Town harbours and can last anything from three days to two weeks, depending on your chosen itinerary and destination.  Interesting ports of call include some islands in Mozambique (Portuguese and Bazaruto islands) and in the Indian Ocean (Madagascar, Reunion and Mauritius).  

The South African cruise calendar usually starts in November each year. The well-known MSC Opera cruise liner will be used for the 2014/2015 South African cruise season.  The MSC Opera is a luxurious cruise liner  with eight decks and a capacity of  20 55 passengers in 856 cabins.  While cruising to interesting South African and African destinations, life on board the ship will keep you entertained throughout your journey. Having already cruised three times, I can attest to the excellent value for your money while having the best time of your life.  

The easiest way to book one of these cruises is to visit the webpage of MSC Cruises where you will find information on all their cruises and prices.

The Ultimate Guide to Child-friendly Restaurants in Pretoria

Pretoria has several child-friendly restaurants but it is not always easy to find one that also has good food and service.  I have been a regular visitor to child-friendly restaurants in Pretoria for almost 11 years.  My top child-friendly restaurants in Pretoria not only have great food and service, but also playgrounds and activities that would keep children busy. Even though there are several other child-friendly restaurants in Pretoria, my list was chosen based on my own experiences.  They are (in no particular order of preference): C'est la Vie in Centurion C'est la Vie playground . C'est la Vie (translated that is life ) in Centurion is definitely a favourite in that it has great food and lots of fun activities to keep children busy.   It boasts a centrally located coffee shop and separate play areas for young and older children.   A water slide and three wheels go karts for the older children add to all the fun. Children aged two and younger may play

Remarkable Train Rides for Kids in Pretoria

Mini trains at Cedar Junction Theme Park. Want to take your children for an outing? The school holidays or weekends can be the ideal time to take them for a train ride to keep them busy. Pretoria has some remarkable train rides to offer.   Having a young kid myself, I know how exciting it is for them to ride on the trains and to hear their sound.  But you can also take them for a ride in a real train. Here is my list of favourite train rides in Pretoria. Centurion Society of Model Engineers Each Sunday the Centurion Society of Model Engineers meets and offers rides on their mini locomotives with little carts for a small fee. These ride are really value for money with some interesting scenery. They can be found each Sunday at Kwikkie Crescent Street, Zwartkops, very close to the Centurion Gautrain station. Barry rides most Sundays in Centurion, except for the third Sunday of each month. Below to the right is one of the many steam trains. Children love to ride

Some Amazing Reasons to visit Magaliesburg

The Magaliesberg mountain range. I tend to go back to Magaliesburg again and again. It is a small town with an interesting country feel not far from Johannesburg and Pretoria and a favourite of mine for a weekend break away.    The Magaliesberg Mountains, which embrace the region, is a beautiful range of hills with lovely floral, some small game and tons of beautiful streams, pools and waterfalls.   Magaliesburg, the town, offers visitors some museums, craft stores, restaurants and a variety of attractions, including a hot air balloon trip, spas and wellness centers, and even a cheese factory. It is also really not far from the fascinating Cradle of Humankind, which makes a trip to this town even more inviting. Magaliesburg has become a real escape for me from the frenzied city life of Pretoria and Johannesburg, and it is hard to believe it is so close.  The hiking is legendary with some fun kloofing trips and rock climbing, as well several horse trails in the area.
