Dive Spots in Durban: Kwazulu-Natal

I hope everyone in Cape Town is loving the cold, windy and wet weather you’re experiencing at the moment! Here in Durbs the sun is shining and the weather is sweet… makes you want to move you’re dancing feet! Just one great feature of the Durban winter, it’s still warm […]

Tony Leon makes a list and checks it twice.

I haven’t thought much of Tony Leon in the past. He is the head of the Democratic Alliance party and although that is who I vote for, he has not really impressed me personally until now. This freedom day (yesterday) he released a list of 13 factors which threaten our […]

Decorex and Design for living Exhibitions: Part 1

These huge design and gadget exhibitions are held once a year for a reason. They wear your hips out from trundling around like a flatfoot. It’s the same syndrome I get when I go to a gallery or museum and you walk at an artificial pace, which gets you nowhere […]

Freedom Day 27th April: looong weekend of rain apparently.

The view from this place is absolutely jaw dropping! The Chalet’s are built up on top of the dunes and overlook the entire horizon of the Indian ocean. The roar of the constant surf and salt in the air, makes you feel like your eating oysters all day… Our chalet […]

Fishing in Wilderness: Part 2

The path to the spot starts and the Kaaimans river estuary, where you scramble (with cooler boxes full of beer, bait, rods etc) up the embankment and on to the now defunct Outeniqua choo-Tjoe railway tracks, along the tracks for about a Kilometre, through the now pitch dark tunnel and […]

Fishing in Wilderness: Part 1

We had decided beforehand that this was primarily going to be a fishing getaway. The Indian ocean coastline along the garden route is particularly rich in fish, although not as many species as further (and warmer) north. Elf (Shad), Kob and Bream are bountiful here. Fishing, for my part anyway, […]

Durban’s “The Golden Mile” Kwazulu-Natal

Durban itself is probably best known for its “Golden Mile”, a 6km walk along the golden sands, that stretches from the Suncoast Casino and Entertainment World in the north to uShaka Marine World in the south. Both uShaka Marine World, Africa’s largest marine park and home to an aquarium and […]
