New Scape 39 Catamaran (Cassinga)

Did an awesome photo-shoot last week for a new Scape 39 Catamaran; Allan Knight and his crew have just launched Cassinga, which is based at the luxury beachfront lodges, Castelo do Mar and Massinga Beach, both in the Inhambane area, Mozambique. These catamaran Scape yachts are designed and built using nothing but the latest technology and highest quality fittings.

Allan took us out on his charter Catamaran to take pictures of the yacht just completed. The only yachts out on the water that day were the five Scape Yachts they had built.
Tangent Charters is moored opposite the Raddison hotel, Cape Town waterfront. This is the ultimate day charter vessel and does cruises to Clifton, Camps Bay, Robben Island as well as sunset cruises.

 Below are a couple of extra shots:

Tough day at the office.
Perfect day for sailing.
And off into the sunset they sailed.

Without a doubt Cape Town has to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Birthday Girl at Giraffe House

We celebrated our daughters eleventh birthday at Giraffe House between Klapmuts and Stellenbosch. We all had an awesome day, played games, had lunch, sweets and cake. We all went to view the different animals and birds, the kids touched a giraffe and feed some of the animals with special food we had arranged. To end off the afternoon we watched a show/animal encounters and we all had the opportunity to meet and hold some interesting creatures. Our host was fantastic and kept us all entertained with his special friends.

Below are some of the pics from the day, there were a lot more animals but I just wanted to share a few with you. Hope you enjoy!

The best party crew.
Best friends.
Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you ..........
It's my birthday!
Yes mom.
Who's got the floss?
Say what?
This is the life...
Wanna kiss?
Whats your problem?
Our host and his furry friend.

A slithering friend.
Sheer terror!

oh so s-s-s-slithering s-s-s-snake

Our host again with his favorite friend.

We would highly recommend this venue for kiddie’s parties, picnics, or a fun family day. The staff is friendly and helpful, the venue is clean, spacious and they have good facilities. The animals look happy, they are well looked after and the rates are reasonable. 

Thanks Dennis for loaning us your wagon which was quickly converted into a multiple kiddie’s cruiser / transporter.
