As we approach the second phase of lock-down, our holiday dreaming is so real we can almost feel it.
“Steadfast Africa specializes in curating the perfect holiday escape for you. One of our favorites is a blend of city, coast and safari… We cannot imagine anything better.”
Ciara’s favorite travel moments encompass just that, let’s dream with her…
Where in the world have you felt happiest?
I went to the Seychelles last year and it was my favorite type of holiday! I just loved the simplistic lifestyle – wake up, swim, snorkel, read, tan, explore and sleep! I am definitely more of a lie by the sea kind of girl..
Describe your favorite view..
I love vast greenery and blue skies! I will never forget this… I was once on an afternoon game drive in the Kruger- it had rained earlier that day and the sun was setting- as we drove through the bushes thousands of birds and butterflies flew out of the trees, the sound and sight was indescribable! I tried to record it with my phone but you just couldn’t capture it.
Which is your favorite city, and why?
I may be biased but I just love Cape Town! There are few cities that can compare..
Describe a childhood holiday memory?
My parents took us to Mozambique often as children and we would go into the markets and bargain with the locals selling their crafts. My mom would give us something like R100 each and we would spend hours going from stall to stall looking at all the incredible hand made souvenirs.
Tell us about a Great Little Place you know…
Angala Boutique hotel in Franschhoek is just the most magnificent escape – it feels like you have gone into a different world and is just an hour outside of Cape Town! It is truly a hidden gem!
Sightseeing or sun lounger?
Sun lounger.. with a good book is my ideal. My mom and sister hate travelling with me because they can walk and explore cities for hours and hours and I get grumpy and complain after an hour or two!
‘I lost my heart in…’
The bush for sure! There’s just something so humbling about it.
As we get closer to open airlines, sandy feet on beaches, the wind through our hair, the sun on our skin and bags packed and ready to go… Steadfast Africa wants to plan your next adventure with you. Spend that extra time on our website or give us a call- we are dreaming with you.
