Good morning Tuesday! Hello Slow Drive – Volume 2. It’s a biannual travel magazine from South Africa about an exploration of roads less travelled. We consider to stock it in the future. What do you think? – Coffee Table Mags

So stoked with my first copy of @slowdrivemag Great Job! – Sebastian Thompson

Ah, so awesome being featured in the Slow drive travel magazine! Go buy an exclusive book of indie travel inspiration at to see more of my Africa travels. This pic was taken on the kgalagadi salt pan in Botswana. – Marleen Roode

Slow Drive Mag Volume 2, Lets Go!! – Jared Hubbard

Work ordered me a copy of one of the most beautiful travel magazines in existence, @slowdrivemag, made in Cape Town. Do yourselves a favour and start collecting them now! – Whisky and Wanderlust

A brand new mag from South Africa (somewhere I visit often and always notice a lack of local indie titles), @slowdrivemag contains stories of travel and tons of beautiful photography. Only 100 copies of issue 1 exist (this is #92!) so I’m very glad I got my hands on one. – Dan Rowden

Love these full pages! Can’t wait to see more from this local travel mag @slowdrivemag xx – Emma-Jane Harbour

Hey @slowdrivemag, Volume 01 looks beautiful! #superbalistloves – Superbalist

LOVE my Slow Drive Magazine. Feels like it was curated, compiled and wrapped just for me. – Renee Luus

What Monday’s Were Made For | Fresh espresso, dark chocolate and time to page through the beautiful 2nd volume of @slowdrivemag entitled ‘Solitude and Companionship’. A cross between a coffee table book and a high quality magazine, it made me realize how seldom we print photography nowadays – and what a rare pleasure it is to discover something curated with such pure passion and authenticity. The launch happened over the weekend in Stellenbosch, an intimate celebration replete with loadshedding and local musicians, Sybrand Strauss and Louis Kuhn putting on a rather rustically romantic candlelit acoustic performance. I encourage you to check out #MySlowDrive & it’s lovely editors: @gtmarais & @nadia_safaria – Skye Leask

A massive shoutout to @gtmarais @nadia_safaria @slowdrivemag on an inspiring Vol 2. Incredible stories and makes me even more excited about contributing to Vol 1. Great things lie ahead guys – Pieter Fabricius

I remember, as a kid, my mom teaching me how to wrap a proper present… keeping the corners crisp & even, getting the ribbon in the right place… all those little things that i think a lot of people maybe don’t notice. I love it still & have a true appreciation for those things. So when I saw the care with which this was packaged, I had to take a pic :) I’ve been so excited for this to arrive & here it is, all the way from South Africa…. – Julie Hueffed

So humbled and honoured to be a part of this incredible magazine. I’ve had stuff printed all over the world and am grateful every time someone thinks my words are good enough to immortalise. But I feel so blessed to have my words share these pages with the inspirational images of Romain Juchereau in this beautiful publication. Just landed on my doorstep all the way from ZA… – Thomas Leitch

Lovely (modern | fresh | etc) new travel mag from South Africa called @slowdrivemag with a nice site too: – Craig Baxter

So impressed with @slowdrivemag – each story is so personalised and the photographs have left me feeling wanderlust. – Jessica Stafford

@penelopeyounger your words in @slowdrivemag are beautiful. I’ve been back in SA for a year, after a 10 year absence. – Troy Squires

The beautiful new independent travel magazine @slowdrivemag Volume 1 arrived today! – Between 10 and 5

Thanks @gtmarais and @nadi_krige for a fantastic 1st edition of @slowdrivemag! Inspiring! – Lea Smit

I’m so grateful to have a 12 pages article featuring some of my analog photography work in the new @slowdrivemag issue with fantastic and very inspiring words from Thomas Leitch @subcutanea . Photos of @ellisericson @shushu_surf and many others. A very nice quality paper magazine from South Africa that i. highly recommend. – Romain Juchereau

We just got 10 more copies of @slowdrivemag an independently published travel mag from Cape Town. Each magazine is signed and numbered. A real collector’s piece. – The Jungle

Got my copy of the beautiful @slowdrivemag. A mid week beach break seemed the best way to indulge in the travel stories and pictures inside. Lovely to read long, reflective pieces rather than 10 reasons why’s. – Adel Groenewald

Slow Drive Magazine is a local and it’s lekker (nice). They have several contributors who send in breathtakingly beautiful pictures from all over the world. It is top quality, inspirational for any photographers/people who love to travel. Plus it’s the perfect coffee table book. One magazine goes for R150, and it’s well worth it, plus the staff are super friendly, isn’t that always the best. – LeChelle Taylor

Congratulations to the team @slowdrivemag for producing a BEAUTIFUL travel magazine! The whole office wants a subscription. – Whiskey & Wanderlust

Introduced the little fella to some of my work earlier, congratulations @slowdrivemag for a brilliant magazine. – Karl Mackie

When I discover passion, I struggle to contain my excitement. Just yesterday I came across @slowdrivemag, thanks to @emmajanenation’s post. Today I met up with Nadia as I was desperate to get my hands on a copy. This publication is gorgeous. Seriously gorgeous. The vision & energy that went into this piece will ensure there’s a demand for a 2nd volume. You can sign me up now. – Troy Squires

In December @gtmarais (with a great team) enriched our lives with the first volume of @slowdrivemag. An authentic publication with stories about being on the open road, finding adventure, and the desire for exploration. I’m super excited to be included as a contributor. Congrats again homie, too cool. – Peter Fabricius
