Port Maruthin, Rodrigues

Rod5

  Cruising the back alleys of #PortMaruthin, the capital of #RodriguesIsland, in search of local colour. And there’s absolute loads of it, from the hustle of the bus station, to the bustle of the fresh produce market. Loving the names of and designs on the public buses in this little piece of paradise called Ile Rodrigues Tourisme The [...]

Rodrigues Island Adventuring

Rod4

Endorphins and end-of-days views, literally everywhere you turn your head. And beautiful people, smiling eyes, Creole cuisine and a vibrant island vibe unfolding here on #Rodrigues. It is Day3 for me as part of the #expafrica2019 Road Show, but it feels like I’ve been on the island for at least a week with all the adventures we’ve experienced [...]

Rodrigues Adventures

Rod3

Just another kickass day on a #moerandgone #african island … Insane #adventure play with the Ile Rodrigues Tourisme and HeidiMuller’s ##kineticevents team on the extreme eastern tip of the #mascarene island group, about 500km off the coast of #mauritius, and utterly encircled by the azure Indian Ocean. Right now, it’s three days to go until the start gun fires to set off the #ExpeditionAfrica adventure race here on #RodriguesIsland, and [...]

Rodrigues Island Vibes

Rod2

Tropical island vibes unfolding on Ile Rodrigues Tourisme #RodriguesIsland as we rev up the arrangements for the annual Kinetic Events Africa #arspectacular. Add this destination to your list of must-do #IndianOceangetaways and get to experience the most remote lump of lava rock along the volcanic #mascareneisland group, just on 500km off #mauritius. Great hooking up with the #kineticevents crew, Team SPOT Africa Extreme Lights and 60x incredible #adventureracing teams from around [...]

On the way to Rodrigues

Rod1

Seems I somehow boarded the #disneyland plane & ended up with a bunch of #sleepingbeauties en route to @kineticeventsZA #ExpeditionAfrica. Not to mention #stepsisters & #sleepmonsters ???????? Great little summary graphic of the 320km route by Charl Du Plessis Click here to view the pics

Kaapstad, jou lekker ding

Bliksem. We live in absolute paradise. Tomorrow I jet off to Ile Rodrigues Tourisme #RodriguesIsland to shoot the unmatched adventure spectacle that unfolds every year around Kinetic Events Africa‘s #ExpeditionAfrica … all I can say is that I hope the light and landscape will match up to my backyard! I spent this past weekend scouting for a new US-based Wine Brand [...]

Trans Baviaans 2019 – Before The Repeat

TB1

Vrek-lekker #InFood #coffee at #Handelsmark in #patensie at dawn on my#Repeat Mission into the #baviaanskloof wilderness area to shoot @EcoBoundEvents #TransBaviaans2019 - real #lifesaver! It’s all systems go at #Bergplaas, the halfway point during what many rate as the “toughest single-day #mtb Stage Race” in the world. Huge thanks to #IGEN Internet Providers, #GardMed Event Medics, #CraftedCycles Bike Mechanics who are already set up and ready to receive the racers after the infamous #MAC, or ‘Mother of All [...]

Ozone Tourism Activation Project – Done

Gam2

Yo-yo-yo #Kouga, what’s next on the @adventure menu. Ended off a stunning week in #jeffreysbay after some wilderness play at #BergRiverEcoResort, #Pabala, #Crossways and the #FerryHotel in the gorgeous #Gamtoos Valley. There’s too much to mention, in between #tuktuk fun, #sandboarding, #horseriding, waterfall #hiking, great #Cuisine and down-home hospitality. Tomorrow, it’s back to business for the OZone Crew as we tackle the EcoBound Mountain Events #TransBaviaans2019 Repeat Lekker to have another #oZoneAfrica Project in the bag, with #IsuzuSA driving our road trip! [...]

Ozone Tourism Activation Shoot – Kouga

Kouga

A day spent in the mountains always feeds the soul. And if those mountains happens to be the rugged ranges skylining below the craggy #CocksCombpeaks, all the better. The only downside here has been that the #oZoneAfrica crew only had one night at #MountIngwe Lodge on the remote #ElandsRiver road. A #BoerWarMuseum, #mtb trails, great #hiking and #4X4 routes, cycad forests, and dozens of nightjars punctuating the dead-still night [...]

Ozone Tourism Activation Shoot – Gamtoos Region

Gam1

Our #oZoneAfrica road trip through the Kouga Region has moved on from #Jbay and #StFrancis to #OysterBay and – from today – the incredible Gamtoos Region stretching into #baviaanskloof and #grootrivier. Huge thanks to the #Kouga Team and all their establishments hosting and feeding us … we love the region and all the adventures! And kudos to #IsuzuSA for keeping us moving. Click here to view the pics
