Thursday morning is when our weekly Wednesday night #TravelChatSA Live Tweet Chat on Twitter hits the Radio airwaves!

Expect anything and everything from can’t-sit-still-in-your-seat road trip music to studio interviews with passionate travel people. We give you fresh information on what to do, see and experience in Cape Town, the Western Cape and beyond – all across the length and breadth of South Africa. Our aim is to be Unapologetically Proudly South African in focus, enticing local travellers and foreign visitors alike to explore and enjoy our beautiful country as a destination.

#TravelChatSA is a non-profit one hour live community travel chat that happens on Twitter every Wednesday night from 19h00 to 20h00. We focus on promoting and celebrating our country’s natural beauty, traditions, diversity, people, places, experiences and much more. Our chatters use the platform to share their knowledge, learn from others in the travel community and be part of a network of people passionate about Travel.  Eventhough our weekly topics focus on South Africa, it is a dynamic and fun Global conversation that anyone can join, learn from and contribute to.

On Thursday mornings we do a quick recap of the previous night’s chat, in case anyone missed out, and then use the bulk of the programme time to get fresh travel related input from local industry professionals, bloggers, product owners and destination marketing organisations.

Climb In, Buckle Up, Listen Up, munch on some road trip snacks, and enjoy the journey with us!

Marlize is a fun-loving Winelands local, passionate about all things travel in South Africa and beyond. Not claiming to be an expert in any particular field, she uses the word ‘lifestyle entrepreneur’ or ‘multi-potentialite’ as a short, sharp job title if pressed for one. The alternative is a lengthy explanation which may still leave the listener wondering! Expect a middle-order batsman kind of vibe – not coming to the pitch in the opening order, but can be counted on to pull through for the team on the day during crunch-time.

In her bag of tricks you’ll find a variety of items including social media marketing, photography and life coaching. Just to make life more fun, there is also a bit of dabbling in the world of music, managing business matters for a Cape Town based performing artist. All of the separate bits add to an interesting mix of things to keep her out of mischief.

Marlize loves the outdoors, hiking, book reading and capturing beauty through the lens of her camera. Social Ballroom and Latin dancing is a natural high from time to time and she is an active member of the local Argentine Tango community in Cape Town. However, on Thursday mornings she is ready to chat about all things TRAVEL and to learn lots along the way while actively engaging with listeners travelling along.
