Cherry Glamping in Elgin

I got the opportunity to stay at Cherry Glamping for one night and really enjoyed the experience. Hubby and I drove to Elgin which is about +-45 minutes from Cape Town. As we arrived we were welcomed by 3 beautiful Zebras. I've never seen Zebra's in real life before so this was quite a treat for me. As you drive into the campsite you automatically feel the quietness of nature setting in and the beautiful panoramic views of the magical Elgin Valley. This is truely nature at its best!
The campsite has about 12 spacious and fully-furnished bell tents set up in the forest, all with luxurious and comfortable beds made up and ready when we arrived. There's a communal lounge with a comfortable 24 seater table and fireplace perfect for those cold winter nights.
If you interested in some fun activities there's easy access to Elgin's famous wine and fruit valley, the apple town of Grabouw, Botriver, the Overberg, the Whale Route, adventure activities, quad biking, mountain biking and much much more.
Hubby and I had such a nice time braaing and talking. This is a great venue if you wanting to get away from the hussle and bussel of city life and just reconnect.
There really is something for everyone. There's a large, open-air, tent covered deck which is available for functions and parties. 
You can stay at this at Cherry Glamping for R2000/tent for 1st night. R2950/tent for 2 nights & then R1250 per night thereafter. Extra beds can be provided at R250.00 per bed per night and you can discuss any further catering options you may have.

Travel Bucket List

I love travelling. Let me rather say that I'm obsessed with travelling, exploring and discovering all things new. 

In past 3-4 years I've travelled to London, Prague, Namibia, Hong Kong & Bali.

Without a doubt those are not nearly enough places and I've put together a bucket list of the top 10 places I would like to explore next inspired by some amazing travel instagramers I follow:

1. New York (@wanderers_list)
Why would anyone not want to travel to New York. New York City is made up of five boroughs: Manhattan, The Bronx, Queens, Brookland & Staten Island. New York is also the largest city in United States.

2. Malta (@lostraveleros)
Malta is one of the most beautiful places. The Azure Window in Gozo is probably the most famous spot — but the Maltese Archipelago is filled with everything from rolling fields to white cliffs to desert landscapes and endless vineyards.

3. Turkey (@dirtybootstravel)

Cappadocia, a semi-arid region in central Turkey, is known for its distinctive “fairy chimneys,” tall, cone-shaped rock formations clustered in Monks Valley, Göreme and elsewhere. Other notables sites include Bronze Age homes carved into valley walls by troglodytes.

4. Portugal (@explorerssaurus_)

The Algarve, Portugal’s southernmost region, is known for its Atlantic beaches and golf resorts. Whitewashed fishing villages on low cliffs overlooking sandy coves were transformed in the 1960s, and now its central coast between Lagos and Faro is lined with villas, hotels, bars and restaurants. 

5. Egypt (@travel_ust)

Cairo, Egypt’s sprawling capital, is set on the Nile River. At its heart is Tahrir Square and the vast Egyptian Museum, a trove of antiquities including royal mummies and gilded King Tutankhamun artifacts. Nearby, Giza is the site of the iconic pyramids and Great Sphinx, dating to the 26th century BC. 

6. Gili Island (@maya_gypsy)

The Gili Islands are a group of 3 tiny islands – Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air – in Indonesia, near the coast of northwest Lombok Island. Characterized by sandy beaches fringed with palm trees, they're known for their coral reefs just offshore. On the smallest island of Gili Meno, sea turtles swim at Turtle Point.

7. Paris, France (@travelwithtereza)

Paris, France's capital, is a major European city and a global center for art, fashion, gastronomy and culture. Its 19th-century cityscape is crisscrossed by wide boulevards and the River Seine. Beyond such landmarks as the Eiffel Tower and the 12th-century, Gothic Notre-Dame cathedral, the city is known for its cafe culture and designer boutiques.

8. Venice, Italy (@naiaramello)

Venice, the capital of northern Italy’s Veneto region, is built on more than 100 small islands in a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea. It has no roads, just canals – including the Grand Canal thoroughfare – lined with Renaissance and Gothic palaces. The central square, Piazza San Marco, contains St. Mark’s Basilica, which is tiled with Byzantine mosaics, and the Campanile bell tower offering views of the city’s red roofs.

9. Bangkok, Thailand (@devio_meow)

Bangkok, Thailand’s capital, is a large city known for ornate shrines and vibrant street life. The boat-filled Chao Phraya River feeds its network of canals, flowing past the Rattanakosin royal district, home to opulent Grand Palace and its sacred Wat Phra Kaew Temple. 

10. Geneva, Swizerland (@latravelgirl)

Geneva is a city in Switzerland that lies at the southern tip of expansive Lac LĂ©man (Lake Geneva). Surrounded by the Alps and Jura mountains, the city has views of dramatic Mont Blanc. Headquarters of Europe’s United Nations and the Red Cross, it’s a global hub for diplomacy and banking. French influence is widespread, from the language to gastronomy and bohemian districts like Carouge.

Its quite obvious that we live on such a beautiful planet and there are a ton of amazing countries to explore. Share your top 10 places that you're keen to explore in the comment section below. I would love to hear about them.
