Life is only travelled once. Today’s moment becomes tomorrow’s memory. Enjoy every moment, good or bad, because the gift of life, is life itself. - Anon 🌲 . The forests between Graskop and Sabie were absolutely incredible for a quick little adventure photoshoot & chill session 📷 . I tried to climb a few of the trees but they were all so damp that it made for a slippery experience 😂 this is about the highest I could get for the shot. (Thanks @missjinamin ) 🤓📸 . . . . . ————————————————————————————— 📍Sabie, South Africa 🇿🇦 ——————————————————————————————- 📷 @gopro Hero 6 Black Edited in @lightroom —————————————————————————— #uniladadventure#goprohero#goproza#goproshots#goprophotography#yourshotphotographer#explore#southafrican#thisismadliving#thisissouthafrica#adventure#explorer#lifeisgood#travelgram#moodygrams#outdoors#nature_good#adventureculture#intothewoods#climbing#hiking#treeclimbing#wanderlust#quechua#hammocking#forests#sabie#southafrica

What an awesome start to the new year! Planning some adventures for 2019? . Graskop and Sabie should definitely be on that list. . There is so much to experience and explore. Places that will simply take your breath away. That will leave you with teary eyes and lasting memories of a beauty that can never truly be explained... Here's why: 1. Jock of the Bushveld trail (Fairyland) 2. Kadishi and Leopard trail 3. Lone Creek Falls 4. Mac Mac Pools 5. Lisbon falls (absolute must see) 6. God's Window 7. Blyde River Canyon from the Three Rondawels viewpoint. 8. The Pinnacle 9. Maria Shires Waterfall and surrounding forest. 10. Bridal Veil falls I've started up a Youtube channel where I will soon be chatting more about my latest venture called, Avonture and all the adventurous content that comes with it! .

I took sooo many photos over the course of the weekend we spent at Smoking Dragon. . Very little of the actual festival, but a while ton of shots from all the quick little adventures we went on. . Overall, this was definitely one of the most scenic hikes I've done in South Africa! . Not that I've been to the Drakensberg many times before, which is why it's one of the places on my Adventures list for 2019, cause there is just so much more to explore and experience among these majestic mountains. . Interested to see who of you has done this beautiful trail before or which other trails around the Drakensberg would you recommend? Lemme know in the comments below👇 . . . . . . ————————————————————————————— 📍Royal Natal, Drakensberg, South Africa 🇿🇦 ——————————————————————————————- 📷 @gopro Hero 6 Black Edited in @lightroom —————————————————————————— #goprohero#goproza#goproshots#goprophotography#traveldreamseekers#explore#southafrican#photooftheday#thisissouthafrica#adventure#explorer#lifeisgood#travelgram#moodygrams#outdoors#nature_good#adventureculture#alive#bouldering#climbing#hiking#yourshotphotographer#wanderlust#landscapephotography#royalnatal#drakensberg#southafrica

We have all experienced moments in our life where it feels like time is standing still. Where nothing else matters and every part of you resonates in absolute bliss. . Like the moment you had your first kiss, The first time you tasted chocolate, Like the day you got your first puppy, Or the first time you fell in love... . I fell in love this day, all over again, as I do every single time I get to experience the beauty of our planet in all her glory at natural wonders like this. . This was my moment... .

Exploring the Kadishi trail with @missjinamin and @thewanderlustmovement was a fun little adventure! From crawling through a forest of thorny ropes to falling into the muddy streams. We got to experience a different kind of beauty at this little oasis tucked away among the trees. It was awesome to see these ladies enjoy this special place just as much as I did 🤙 . . . . . . ————————————————————————————— 📍Blyde River Resort, Graskop, South Africa 🇿🇦 ——————————————————————————————- 📷 @gopro Hero 6 Black Edited in @lightroom —————————————————————————— #goprohero#goproza#goproshots#goprophotography#yourshotphotographer#explore#southafrican#photooftheday#thisissouthafrica#adventure#explorer#lifeisgood#travelgram#moodygrams#outdoors#nature_good#adventureculture#alive#waterislife#kadishitrail#hiking#waterfalls#wanderlust#landscapephotography#chasingwaterfalls#blyderivercanyon#graskop#southafrica

Smoking Dragon, a place where I dress like a complete hippie for the entire duration of the festival😂 . I think it's awesome that people can express themselves in their own unique ways here without other humans judging them... . How beautiful is the reflection off this little dam by the Amphitheatre backpackers though... The perfect view for... ehem... reflecting back on 2018 and what an amazing year it was! . . . . . . . ————————————————————————————— 📍Amphitheatre Backpackers Lodge, Drakensberg, South Africa 🇿🇦 ——————————————————————————————- 📷 @gopro Hero 6 Black Edited in @lightroom —————————————————————————— #goprohero#goproza#goproshots#goprophotography#travelersnotebook#explore#southafrican#photooftheday#thisissouthafrica#adventure#explorer#lifeisgood#travelgram#moodygrams#outdoors#nature_good#adventureculture#alive#hippie#cloudporn#reflection#waterislife#wanderlust#landscapephotography#backpackers#smokingdragon#drakensberg#southafrica

It was our last morning in Graskop. We woke up at 4am to get to the Three Sisters viewpoint overlooking the beautiful Blyde River Canyon. . The morning mist was hanging low across the winding roads that led to our destination. Threatening to block our view of the suns arrival completely... . When we got to the gate, we noticed that the park only opened at 7, but to our luck, the gate was left open, so we could sneak in and start making our way to the viewpoint. . The universe was most definitely on our side. As we approached the top of the road, the clouds started dissipating and left us with a view we will never forget.... . And Sparky did GOOD in the wind this morning! 😁 . . . ————————————————————————————— 📍Blyde River Canyon, Blydepoort, South Africa 🇿🇦 ——————————————————————————————- 📷 @djiglobal Spark Edited in @lightroom —————————————————————————— #djispark#shotondji#dronephoto#dronephotography#travelers#explore#southafrican#photooftheday#thisissouthafrica#adventure#explorer#lifeisgood#travelgram#moodygrams#outdoors#nature_good#adventureculture#alive#climbing#hiking#cloudporn#wanderlust#landscapephotography#chasingthesun#blyderivercanyon#mysouthafrica#graskop#southafrica

I have really fallen inlove with this initiative... Go check out @adventurebagcrew and join the movement today! . We have all these beautiful scenes across the world that so many people flock to every year to experience. Leaving them with unforgettable memories. . Unfortunately in exchange for that, some humans leave their trash behind, not caring about the consequences this has on the environment. . Fortunately, there are a lot of people who actually care about our natural world too, who leave nothing but footprints behind. . We visit these beautiful places and take a collection of memories back with us, but what do we do in return, to pay tribute to mother nature, to say thank you for all the natural wonder... . This is where the #adventurebag initiative comes in. Every time you take the experience from one of these amazing places back home with you, you can give back by leaving with 1 Adventure bag full of trash 😊which I think is a pretty good way of saying thank you. . . . . . . ————————————————————————————— 📍Royal Natal, Drakensberg, South Africa 🇿🇦 ——————————————————————————————- 📷 @gopro Hero 6 Black Edited in @lightroom —————————————————————————— #goprohero#goproza#goproshots#goprophotography#travelersnotebook#explore#southafrican#photooftheday#thisissouthafrica#adventure#explorer#lifeisgood#travelgram#moodygrams#outdoors#nature_good#adventureculture#alive#bouldering#climbing#hiking#riverbed#wanderlust#landscapephotography#royalnatal#drakensberg#southafrica

What a way to end off our last day... Early morning to meet the sunrise over Blyde River Canyon then chasing one last waterfall. . The Bridal veil has a 146m drop according to Wikipedia, but I got about a +-70m reading with the drone. Either way, it was an incredible sight to see and even better to experience the power of the water, crashing down on my shoulders... Definitely worth the R10 entrance fee and short "hike" to the falls. .

I came into this hike a little sceptical, I must be honest. It was a scorching hot day with no clouds in sight and a 15km trek ahead with little cover from the sun. . I was actually just a little hungover from the night before from like 3 drinks. Sad I know...but for those of you who know me, know that Im not a big drinker. Needless to say, I put my bigboy pants on and had my mind set on an epic adventure ahead of us. . From that shift in my attitude came one of the most incredible days of my life, with breathtaking views like this... . Once you learn to strengthen your mind, there's very little that can stop you from being happy. . . . . . . ————————————————————————————— 📍Royal Natal, Drakensberg, South Africa 🇿🇦 ——————————————————————————————- 📷 @gopro Hero 6 Black Edited in @lightroom —————————————————————————— #goprohero#goproza#goproshots#goprophotography#travelersnotebook#explore#southafrican#photooftheday#thisissouthafrica#adventure#explorer#lifeisgood#travelgram#moodygrams#outdoors#nature_good#adventureculture#alive#bouldering#climbing#hiking#riverbed#wanderlust#landscapephotography#nationalpark#royalnatal#drakensberg#southafrica

We never choose the easy path when we go on adventures. Climbing, running, jumping, falling...haha yea there were a few of those on this trip. But thats the only way you learn and grow! . I think it also helps me feel a lot more present in that moment, when Im doing something that's challenging me, it brings me back down to earth and shows me just how much Im actually capable of when I decide to step out of my comfort zone...and that just makes me want to do it more and more and more... . . . . . . ————————————————————————————— 📍Royal Natal, Drakensberg, South Africa 🇿🇦 ——————————————————————————————- 📷 @gopro Hero 6 Black Edited in @lightroom —————————————————————————— #goprohero#goproza#goproshots#goprophotography#travelersnotebook#explore#southafrican#photooftheday#thisissouthafrica#adventure#explorer#lifeisgood#travelgram#moodygrams#outdoors#nature_good#adventureculture#alive#bouldering#climbing#hiking#riverbed#wanderlust#landscapephotography#nationalpark#royalnatal#drakensburg#southafrica
