    So, the birds are tuning up, the days are getting longer and we have finally been able to wear t-shirts without looking like a freshly plucked ostrich. This summer we are particularly excited about Pink. It is everywhere this season from pretty pastels to shades that pack a punch, and the best news; there is a shade for each and every one of us!

    Upon arrival in South Africa our first stop was to the Foodbarn Restaurant, Noordhoek of which my nephew Franck Dangereux is the owner and chef. Situated on the beach just outside Cape Town, this foodbarn is truly exceptional and a place I would recommend to anyone visiting the Cape. I realise my opinions could be seen as slightly biased, so please take a look at Trip Advisor for an impartial opinion!

    We are staying nearby in our much-loved Kommetjkie, literally on the beach. Here at Kommetjkie, we are taking time to visit our Cape Town production teams before hopping up to Oudtshoorn, the home of the Ostrich. Following the earlier part of our trip, we are feeling well rested and inspired, and currently enjoying developing products with new styles and colours.

    As always the highlight of our trip is Oudtshoorn, where the concept of Ostrich 2 Love originated.

    Currently we are in South Africa, in the midst of developing new designs and styles. Earlier during our trip, we were lucky enough to take a few days off, travelling across Africa and taking in the beauty of this magnificent place. We started with a safari in Zulu Nyala, in the KwaZulu-Natal province in South Africa, which was simply out of this world and a place that we would thoroughly recommend for anyone who are looking for a safari paradise.

    Then a flight to Namibia, where we had a glorious few days, watching the Kalahari sun rise red and gold at dawn was particularly memorable, along with an inquisitive springbok joining us in the dining area. The camp is around three hours drive from the capital Windhoek and we arrived here via the Fish River Canyon, was well worth the detour and is the largest canyon in Africa.

    Being brought up in Namibia and born in Walvis Bay, a port town on the coast, the immense size of this country is bought home.
