Equestrian ride

Nicolene Marais is a horse lover by nature and likes to bring it over to children by taking them for an ‘equestrian ride’ at the Holdrift Farm in Napier, Overberg, South Africa.


This is community spirit of the highest level during the lockdown (over 50 days now) in South Africa.

It’s happening in Napier, Overberg, Western Cape, South Africa.

Where politics fail there are the Soup Sisters. Great initiative; widely supported by local businesses, farmers and private donations.

Community spirit in lockdown times

28 Volunteers with a multicultural background are engaged in feeding about 500 of the poorest people in our village.

They all are very grateful for donations from private people, businesses and the farming community of Napier.

Exhibition Haiku Photography


Slow song sweetly sung

she sways gently. wishing for

his tender embrace.

Next month at the Baardskeerdersbos Art Route I will officially launch my new colourful Haiku photographs as guest artist of Liz Van Den Berg (Gyotaku prints) at Tierfontein. Baardskeerdersbos is a hamlet tucked away between Gansbaai and Bredasdorp in the Overberg, Western Cape, South Africa.
