Robben Island

We pre booked tickets online for a tour of Robben Island. We met at the ferry docks about 9am and it took around 30minutes to get out to the island. Once there, we were loaded onto a few different buses to take us around the Island. The first stop was at the main prison. We…

Cheetah Sanctuary & Lion’s Head

Last morning in South Africa for Jess ☹ thankfully the rest of us have two more days! We decided to go check out the Cheetah Sanctuary that we had been told about by one of the girls on our garden route tour. The sanctuary was created to help raise money for the Anatolian dog breeding…

Table Mountain

We got picked up nice and early at 5:30am to head over and start our hike up Table Mountain. We decided to hike the India Venster route and were told to get a guide for safety purposes. The hike started off just before the sun started to rise so it was pretty dark and needed…

5 Day Garden Route Tour

4 Day Nile Cruise

Day 1 5am flight from Cairo to Aswan (lack of sleep starting to catch up with us!). We pre booked a Nile Cruise and were picked up by our tour guide (Big Mac) at the airport. Before boarding the boat we drove around Aswan for a few hours to see a few sites and learn…

The Great Pyramids, Saqqara, & Memphis

What a day! We got in very late as our second flight was delayed an hour so we didn’t get to the hotel until 3am! Fun fact though- we were on 3 continents within 7hrs! I pre booked a tour of the pyramids and other super old sites of Cairo. We stayed at a Hilton…
