Cheetah Mia, Cango Wildlife Ranch
During my short visit to Oudtshoorn, I visited the Cango Wildlife Ranch, an organisation which works towards the conservation of cheetahs and other endangered species, and has been breeding endangered species for over 28 years.

Elephant portrait at Addo
One of the things I get all giddy about is elephants. Ever since receiving my cute pink elephant cuddly toy when I was 2, I haven’t been able to get them out of my head. Last year I was able to volunteer with the Asian elephants at the Elephant Nature...

Sunset in Cape Town

With plenty of history to captivate historians, an over-abundance of wine farms to entertain wine lovers, numerous mountains and hills to keep hikers...

ostrich riding in South Africa
While in Oudtshoorn, it's hard to miss all the signs to the numerous Ostrich (show) farms around the area. I had seen a few ostriches running around the Western Cape, on farms or the national parks, but I wanted to get to know these gigantic birds a little bit...
