August 2019 issue is out!

Posted on 22 July 2019

For our August 2019 cover story on Mozambique, Getaway journalists Catherine Hofmeyr and Gabrielle Jacobs drive from Joburg to Vilanculos and back, sharing what’s new and what’s still hot – peri-peri hot. We journey through South Luangwa National Park with photo-safari guide David Rogers who shows us where he gets his best shots. Christi Nortier joins the annual outing to the Cederberg to repopulate the slopes with its unique and endangered namesake. Nick Dall retraces the 18th-century Western Cape wagon tour of the intrepid noblewoman, Lady Anne Barnard. Hop along with us from wild and magical nature reserves to bustling ports and pretty waterside spots to set up camp.

David Rogers – Luangwa portfolio page 64

At the tail end of the Great Rift Valley, wildlife congregates around Zambia’s Luangwa River in numbers seen in few other places in Africa.

Mia Louw – Mpumalanga, page 72

Travelling in a landlocked province shouldn’t keep you from getting your feet wet. Here’s where to pitch your tent next to water, and sometimes sharing a river with Kruger.

Catherine Hofmeyr – Southern Mozambique, page 86

Mozambique tweaks its tourism act a little every year. Getaway went on a self-drive 4×4 expedition from Bilene to Vilanculos to ferret out the best of old and new for a beach holiday.

Karin Schimke – Israel, page 96 

The nation of Israel is a place of political difficulty and contention, but it’s also a world-leader in terms of water management and agriculture. Karin Schimke combined a duty visit with a holiday that covered the country by threading her way through Israel’s various bodies of water.
