Siyazula – A Xhosa (South African language) word meaning: “We are roaming”
Indeed, that is what this site is all about – travel, food, unique experiences and reviews.

My name is Driaan and I’m a 30-something South African born hospitality manager and part time travel blogger in the midst of a never-ending love affair with world travel. I spend half my life wowing guests in a luxury hotel and the other half exploring our beautiful planet.

I have traveled across 2 continents and in 2019 I added some islands to the list!

Want to know where I am currently exploring and where I am headed next?


About Driaan

Born and raised in Worcester, South Africa; I’m a hospitality manager, online contributor with @HiltonSuggests (Twitter travel suggestion platform) & part-time Bcom Business Management student.

I hope to inspire others through my travels and show them the most beautiful parts of this world, all while enjoying the finer things in life.

Siyazula is a lifestyle and travel blog with a focus on South African and international travel, food and pure relaxation. Its mission is to discover the highest quality experiences, services and brands, share them with people all over the world and inspire them to do the same.

Based in #CapeTown, South Africa; I am surrounded by vineyards, oceans, a cosmopolitan city that is currently one of the highest-rated in Africa, and of course, nature.

As Saint Augustine once said: “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” Life is too short to wait for later, don’t miss out by not taking the time to read all the pages of this wonderful book we call the world.

Join me while I share my adventures and hopefully inspire you along the way!
