We’ve just turned 4 years old. That’s 4 years of creating nature-inspired messages with care for our clients. Right now, we’re faced with challenges no one could have foreseen only a few short months ago. But while there’s a lot of uncertainty linked to

Google is changing the way it ranks websites during a search. And the change could impact on whether your website is seen by millions; or not. That’s where Search Engine Optimization comes in (among other things). It’s how you make sure Google reads
Sometimes you simply need to re-energise. And there is surely no better way to do this, than by spending time in a magical forest – or more specifically, the forests in the Tsitsikamma National Park. Whether it’s the silent grandeur of the trees and their tales of strength, or the happy sounds and sights of
Once the craziness of the work year subsides, you’re likely to see a bit of a mind shift – a positive one. That’s when people move into a more relaxed approach, one where they’re more open to year-end giving campaigns. That’s a great opportunity for non-profits.
It’s not such a well-known concept in South Africa: #GivingTuesday. But on an international stage, it’s a powerful fundraising opportunity for non-profit organisations. But that doesn’t mean South Africa can’t tap into this growing trend. And if you’re to make a success of the day, best to start planning now.

You’re on holiday for the festive season. So the last thing you’re likely to want to do is have to keep a constant eye on your website. There are ways to minimise your risk – and your worry levels – before you close down for a festive break.
We’re inspired by nature. By seeing her colours, feeling her textures. Hearing the sound of a bird of prey (have you heard the Jackal Buzzard? It’s one of our favourites). So we loved experiencing the thousands of tones of green in the Grootvadersbosch Conservancy recently.
Chris took us for a guided hike over the reserve. But the sightings and experiences were unusual, and unlike any we’d experienced before. Perhaps the biggest difference was the number of things to see – from flora, to fauna, to history, in the space of
Wanneer die grondpaaie en afgeleë plekke jou naam roep, is dit tyd om die lang pad te vat na Botswana vir ‘n Afrika avontuur. Ons het onlangs 5 natuurreservate en nasionale parke in Botswana besoek. Paspoort: afgemerk. Kamptoerusting: afgemerk.

How do you capture the essence of a landscape initiative? (And what exactly is that?) Well, that was our brief: make the Agulhas Biodiversity Initiative come alive digitally for partners (and make sense for those who don’t know the organisation).
The Hottentots Holland mountains are just a short trip from Cape Town. They’re part of a lush, fynbos-covered mountain range that stretches for about 70,000 hectares. They form part of a CapeNature reserve with the same name.
We discovered the Cape Town Bucket List adventures – and took to the ocean to experience snorkeling with seals. So following a safety briefing at the Hout Bay Harbour, where the adventure starts with the Cape Town Bucket List team (Archie, Ian and Mel) we hopped into our wetsuits, and took the 10-minute boat ride out to Duiker Island.
