We discovered the source of Dani’s magic when we stayed at her family’s trout farm near Machadodorp.
Time stood still for us at the farm – we loved it – we recharged and managed to have our first proper school day on the front stoep and went for an amazing swim in a river pool.

Then we entered the wonderful house which we totally LOVED. And then we ran out of water but it was fine as we had water in the Landy and a river to bath in….
