Baby on board • Can you travel with a baby? Of course you can. The question is whether you’ll actually enjoy your holiday! Esma Marnewick remembers a few trying trips.

Hear the Orange River roar • Earlier this year, the people of the Northern Cape pricked their ears: Heavy summer rains and full dams upstream along the Orange River meant floodwaters and a great noise were coming to Augrabies Falls National Park.

Hit the sweet spot • Do you have plans for the upcoming long weekends? Whether you head out or hole up at home, these sweet treats will make your downtime even more satisfying.

Buffy the cold slayer • The humble tube scarf is the multi-tool of clothing. It’s a bandana, cap, sweatband, mask, handkerchief – and an emergency bandage if necessary. These days, even Benji the bull terrier has his own Buff®.
