About Roaming Fox


Hi & Welcome to my den!


Gather round and make yourself comfy while you read my fables. You’ll find some humorous or interesting bits when we sauntered around close to home and travelled like a local. At times we’ve explored on a road trip to neighbouring countries; sometimes on tar and sometimes off-road. There are even some fables about international travel.


I'm Alma from Roaming Fox, a South African travel blogger, often travelling on a shoestring.

I’ve always had a passion for travelling and exploring. As kids, we sat on a Persian carpet at my god-parent’s house; one that they’d bought as a souvenir from a foreign market.

We drooled over the slides, projected on a wall in their lounge, about exotic places, such as Hong Kong or Europe. I’d like you to experience that same thrill I had, whilst listening to those exciting travel tales. A yearning to see other parts of the world or even explore our own country.

Over the years I have been extremely fortunate to venture to a few of those places.

I’d love you to read about those adventures and hope to get a chuckle or two from you, about our experiences at the places we’ve left our paw prints. Perhaps you’ll pick up a few hints and tips for your travels too.


Where are those destinations & what did we do?

Our travels have always been part time, although I could easily pack my bags and travel full time to places on my bucket list.

We’ve been bush camping in South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe to beach camping in Mozambique. We’ve flitted to the United Kingdom, Europe, and Australia. Not to forget those picture postcard islands - they haven’t escaped from us as we’ve enjoyed holidays in Madagascar, Seychelles, Maldives, Thailand and Comoros. We’ve even had live aboard diving holidays on the Red Sea in Egypt.


So what are you waiting for? Dash into my den and roam through my blog and destinations. Take your time burrowing through the cache of our adventures.


The world is yours to explore!



Before I decided to create my own website, I published blogs about our travels on a communal travel blog. These are my stories although I am in the process of rewriting them all for this website with more information, so hope you’ll read them here.
