Heather Hunter, who runs the Honey Pot B&B with her husband Bob, in the KwaZulu Natal seaside resort of Umhlanga, is also actively involved in development tourism, and is the person to call for township tours in the area.
KwaMashu is the largest such township: Helen can arrange day sightseeing trips, shebeen (pub) lunches and suppers, and even overnight accommodation, for those keen to see more of KZN’s north coast than people frying on beaches.
The most popular day tour ranges across the region’s countryside, visiting Mahatma Ghandi’s famous Phoenix settlement, the dam at Inanda, and the Shembe Village, home to those who follow one of South Africa’s most fascinating indigenous religions. (Your Correspondent has been to meet the Shembes in their village, which hearkens back to a Medieval market town – it’s an experience not to be missed.)
