TRAVEL Noordhoek Beach, Cape Town Where did you go on your family adventure? For Christmas last year we headed to South Africa as we wanted an easy introduction into the world of travelling. We explored Cape Town, wine tasted in Stellenbosch, wake boarded in Hermanus, surfed on Boxing Day off the stunning beaches of Knysna and safaried near Port Elizabeth. Why did you choose that particular place? We were looking for a holiday that had a bit of everything: beaches, animals, The Denbys SOUTH AFRICA Postcard from SOUTH AFRICA The Denby family from Twyford School take a walk on the wild side! beautiful scenery, culture, delicious food and wine, easy to get around and where language wasn’t an issue. We found all that and more! What were your highlights? Surfing on Boxing Day in Knysna and the four days we spent on safari. We were very keen to see rhinos as our daughter is very keen on their conservation. We weren’t disappointed. On the first day we saw seven rhinos and so every day after that was just wonderful. We had some hilarious standoffs with elephants and we broke down on a river! Help came, but it all added to the adventure. Were there any low points? Cape Town was a stunning city with a lovely easy going vibe but we were a bit unlucky with the incredibly strong wind - known as the Cape Doctor, so we were unable to visit Robben Island or walk up Table Mountain. Was there a piece of kit that you wouldn’t travel without? I would thoroughly recommend taking a pair of decent binoculars and a good resolution camera. Where are you off to on your next big adventure? We have already booked to go to Sri Lanka and we can’t wait to go further afield next year. Costa Rica or Namibia 2019 - who knows?
