Chris Davies discovered one of life’s most pleasurable experiences – fly fishing. Plus there’s no more beautiful place to not catch a fish than in the Eastern Cape Highlands.
Born in the Eastern Cape and raised in Cape Town, I’ve been working and travelling my way around Africa, Europe and the Mediterranean for the last 20 years. I'm always happiest when on the road. Robert Louis Stevenson said it best: "I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move."Follow @chrisdaviez
This route from Joburg into the North West takes you past nine microbreweries where you can slake your thirst, writes Chris Davies.
Imagine a cycle tour that takes you from beach to bluff to ford to forest in five days, and no two routes are ever the same…There is one in SA, and you can do it.
The gorgeous town of Zinkwazi is close to Durban and has wide unspoilt beaches. It brims and hums during the holiday, and out of season it’s a paradise of tranquillity, writes photojournalist Chris Davies.
Hike, raft, track lions, spot sharks – there are loads of adventure activities to do on the Garden Route, but these 10 are my favourite.
Imagine a mountain-bike tour along what is probably South Africa’s most beautiful coastline, to secret beaches and hidden coves that can only be reached by foot or bicycle. It’s time to go fatbiking on the Wild Coast.
Chile is a country with a flourishing food, wine and beer culture, and it’s brimming in new-found confidence. I tasted my way around five areas of Chile: from ‘witch potatoes’ on Chiloé Island to artisanal beer brewing in Valparaíso. Here’s why now is the perfect time for foodies to visit Chile.
With the nickname ‘Jewel of the Pacific’ you’d expect Valparaíso to be a sparkling kind of place. And it is: a hive of activity and colour, restaurants and cafés, backpackers, bars and boutique hotels.
Jed decided to quit his job and ride his bicycle north to south through the Americas. This beautiful video captures the essence of why he decided to do it.
Thought learning to ski in the French Alps was an out-of-reach holiday? It’s more affordable than you might think – that is, provided the rand doesn’t plummet too much further…
