Happy Birthday to… Amy!

Sunday, 12 Jan 2014 | Views [124]

So Sunday was a little bit hectic in the morning as we prepped everything for Amy’s birthday lunch. There were lots of tables and chairs to be moved around, chips, dips and condiments to be placed out and the main food to be prepared. Due to an ... Read more >

Blue Skies

Saturday, 11 Jan 2014 | Views [141] | Comments [1]

Today was a day I have been looking forward to and dreading in equal measure. I was incredibly excited but also had that sick nervous feeling in my stomach. I was booked to arrive at the Pretoria Skydiving Club at Wonderboom Airport for 2:30. I drove ... Read more >

The calm before…

Friday, 10 Jan 2014 | Views [96] | Comments [1]

The few days after getting back from Kwafubesi proved to be relatively quiet. I had a couple of days lounging around the house and sorting out washing etc and spent Thursday and Friday mainly shopping and cooking, although I did manage to visit a barbour ... Read more >

Saving the best till last

Sunday, 5 Jan 2014 | Views [81]

The last morning of our stay was another 6AM start to the game drive. When the alarm sounded at 5 I was surprisingly active and was showered and ready in no time flat. Deb decided that she was going to have a lie in rather than another drive so I headed ... Read more >

The early bird…

Saturday, 4 Jan 2014 | Views [88]

The following morning began with the alarm going off at 5AM, just as it is starting to get light. The drive was due to start a 6 so after a quick shower it was down to the main area for coffee and rusks to await the start. Once all were assembled we ... Read more >

I think I’m becoming an addict

Friday, 3 Jan 2014 | Views [96]

Whichever way you cut it game drives are addictive, for me anyway. I got back yesterday from a weekend at Kwafubesi Tented Camp in the Mabula Private Game Park and already I’m missing it. It’s a very different experience from the one I had ... Read more >

Another year, another game drive!

Thursday, 2 Jan 2014 | Views [211]

The only plan we had for New Years Day was lunch at Steve and Cathy’s, friends of Deb’s who I’d met when I first arrived here way back in November. There were about 10 of us there in total and a very relaxed (and fabulous lunch) turned ... Read more >

What day is it again?

Tuesday, 31 Dec 2013 | Views [379] | Comments [1]

The final morning of our trip was glorious. The weather had turned overnight and cloudy with showers was replaced with SUN! Having had a reasonably boozy evening in the hotel bar with some locals we met there, I think being up and running by 8:30 was ... Read more >

Another day, another battlefield.

Monday, 30 Dec 2013 | Views [121]

Our original plan for today was to head for Vryheid and visit the battlefields at Hlobane and Khambula where one of Deb’s relatives was actively involved. However we finally decided, after consulting with Foy, that we would be better served by ... Read more >

Zulu Wars

Sunday, 29 Dec 2013 | Views [138]

So after a really quick planning session Deb and I set of towards KwaZulu Natal. The idea was to head towards the Royal Natal National Park, to take a look at where Zulu was filmed and then to head on to the accommodation we had booked in the area of ... Read more >
