Ready for a fight, I went on a nine-day trip to catch my first tiger fish with my dad two years ago. As fortune would have it, these freshwater giants live in heavenly places - the rivers of Botswana and Namibia.
My first job at South Africa’s oldest travel magazine, Getaway, was as the Gear Editor. I learnt loads about tech and admired the specs of all travel kit while compiling features on everything from hiking boots to solar panels, tents to blow-up mattresses, cameras to paper maps and more.

Recently named a UNESCO world heritage site, the Okavango Delta is an entrancing beauty best appreciated from above. Here's what it's like to see these incredible wetlands from the sky.
A few shops, bottle stores and butchers line the main street in Williston, a small Karoo town between Calvinia and Carnarvon, but if you turn away towards the sandstone church you'll find an extraordinary oasis.
