Leani Jansen van Vuuren

Leani is a jack of all trades, master of some.

Interested in anything and everything from test cricket to playing the guitar and harmonica (at the same time), nature conservation and Vietnamese cooking, she tries to learn as much as possible about everything under the sun.

Being a journalism graduate and lover of life, she gets a kick from going on mini-adventures and creatively unlocking and packaging them with words and photos. And what better way to showcase the magic of the Mother City?

Her happy place is brewing a cup of coffee on a gas stove, stuck on a mountain somewhere with her husband and friends after a hike… and then spotting a Verreaux eagle, of course.
