Don’t you hate it when an Uber driver gets lost? Well, that’s exactly what happened on route to the Bistro at Klein Constantia. We ended up on the wrong side of the farm.

Today I will be speaking about my recent visit to Benguela Cove with the ladies from #TravelChatSA.
What makes the African continent special? Is it the rich cultural and diverse heritage, wild life, friendly people or the breath-taking views?
