What a fantastic idea 🧡

Delicatessen LOCAL SPENS in Drostdy Street, Stellenbosch, has launched a coffee initiative whereby customers can pre-pay a coffee for a stranger who can't afford one.

Each paid-up coffee is recorded by a Post-it Note stuck to a blackboard in the the deli. Next time you're in Stellenbosch, why not swing by and pay a coffee forward?😃

Cape Town Freediving

Cape Town Freediving

Enchanted woods. The doorways may be more obscure, but we can still seek them out.
There is still space for adventure.
There are trees that whisper of long lost trails and treasures.
Waiting to be rediscovered and retold.

There will always be magic and mystery within nature because it’s here that our imagination and creativity is free to be, to roam, to dream, to dance to breathe.
It is within nature that we find our own nature.

What are you waiting for?
Adventures await.
The woods are calling!
The doorways might be more obscure but seek them out and you will never seize to learn, to grow, to live a life filled with endless adventure.
The woods are calling you home.

___
Adventure Freediving, reconnect to nature within and around you - one breath at a time.

Cango Caves Open It's Doors After Six-Month National Lockdown Closure

Oudtshoorn, 9 September 2020 – After having had to close its doors as a result of the National Lockdown for a period of approximately six months, the Cango Caves is proud to announce that it will open its doors to the public on Friday,
11 September 2020.

The Cango Caves, which successfully draws about 250 000 tourists a year, is regarded as a provincial, national as well as an international tourism treasure. More than half of all visitors per year are from outside the borders of South Africa, with 60% of all visitors coming from Europe and Britain. South East Asian tourists are also as key visitors.

In this regard the Cango Caves is widely acknowledged for its role as a key contributor to the economy of the Garden Route and Klein Karoo, and in particular Oudtshoorn.

“The onset of the Covid-19 pandemic and its resultant negative impact on the economy of the region, meant that the Cango Caves management along with key partners of the Oudtshoorn Municipality had to think very carefully about its future business and plan for accordingly,” says Alison Moos, Acting Manager of the Cango Caves.

“As far we know, this is the first time since opening its doors in the late 1900s that the Cango Caves had to close its doors for such a long period of time – nearly six months since National Lockdown was introduced in March this year,” Moos adds.

“While we are looking forward to opening our doors to welcome tourists again, we are well aware of the importance to protect the safety of both the Cango Caves employees as well as our visitors. We are also aware of the negative impact of Covid-19 on the economy, locally, national as well as internationally. This means that at least for the next 18 months we are unlikely to experience as strong a flow of visitors as we saw prior to the onset of the pandemic.”

“We also know that should we register a Covid-19 case at the Cango Caves, we would most likely have to close our doors again, albeit for a much shorter period of time.”

With regards to tours, Moos announced that, as part of the measures introduced to manage the situation, “the Cango Caves will for the foreseeable future only offer the Heritage Tour, which is an easy walk through the first six largest chambers. The size of the groups on this specific tour will also be limited, given requirements for social distancing”.

“The Heritage Tour originally catered for a maximum of 100 people. This has been changed, in line with safety protocol, to 20 people on the tour and the tour is conducted every 15 minutes.”

The Adventure Tour, which is considered a more challenging tour with narrow passages and tunnels that requires a degree of fitness, has been suspended till further notice.

Sanitising stations are available throughout the complex before visitors embark on their tour and visitors are encouraged to regularly sanitise their hands. Face masks are obligatory for all staff and visitors. Electronic temperature screening and sanitising will take place at the entrance to the complex.

The Cango Caves is a public entity and as such adheres to the strict regulation as gazetted by the Department of Labour as well as the Department of Health.

The first tour at Cango Caves was conducted in 1891.

Ends.

WATCH: We've uncovered one of the Western Cape’s best kept secrets - the Dylan Lewis Sculpture Garden in Stellenbosch. The magnificent bronze sculptures come to life against the overwhelmingly beautiful backdrop of the mountains, and the fynbos. It took Lewis 10 years to curate this intriguing space where art and nature live in complete harmony.

Who remembers their last visit to Newlands Pool? A lot of work is being done to ensure it opens up in time for the next summer season. Whilst we are mindful of the COVID regulations we also know that taking care of our community facilities and opening up public facilities is important and this is a priority we keep driving across the city especially in our disadvantaged communities where redressing social injustices as a result of our past history is so critical.

I always book my winelands tour guests here. The food and view is awesome. Highly recommend.

Thank you for a wonderful stay at Riversong. We were made to feel so welcome and Aaron was a great host and very patient with us arriving so late. The facilities are top class and we really enjoyed every small detail (especially the sherry and caramel popcorn). I will miss the superb breakfast and the beautiful fruit platter provided. The secret garden was a special treat and a small hideaway to just be quiet in and enjoying the purling sound of the rivulet meandering through. The books were so inviting... I wish I could read them all! Overall we had an amazing experience and we felt so spoilt.
Love this guesthouse. Been back many times and will see you soon. Clean, neat, peaceful and well managed by friendly staff. Always a treat, our home away from home. 🏡
