Cape Town

Lying immediately beneath Table Mountain, Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, a true melting pot of diverse cultures with a fascinating past.

The central city is packed full of quirky roads to explore and the Victoria & Albert Waterfront offers mainstream shopping with a great harbour.

Restaurants here are world-class, with a fusion of cuisines from fresh seafood to Cape Malay, complimented by incredible wines from the Cape Winelands nearby. To the south of the city are the picturesque golden beaches of Bantry Bay, Clifton, and Camps Bay. Friendly and welcoming, Cape Town is a city you can’t help but love.

Jackie Devereux

I was born in Zimbabwe. With a dad who was in the police force, we moved from place to place. I have always been passionate about travel. My grandparents mentioned that our ancestors set off from the Horn of Africa – Ethiopia – looking for better cattle pastures. They ended up settling in the south-eastern hills of Zimbabwe, in the Great Zimbabwe area.

Illona Cross

Born in a small South African town, I have always followed my passion for nature and discovery. After studying Nature Conservation in Pretoria, I was one of the first women to complete a very tough cadetship in the Natal Parks Board. It was here where I cut my teeth in African wildlife management. My desire to see more led me to work as a guide for AndBeyond, first in South Africa, then in Tanzania as the company expanded. Here, I lived and worked in the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro, guiding and running safari camps.

Aged five and with my Curious George toy safely tucked under my arm, I set off with my family to travel around Europe in an orange VW minibus. Looking back on the adventures we had along the way, I now know that this was where my love for travel and exploring began.
