The new promenade – a pedestrian superhighway – runs behind the beaches for 6km, and we enjoyed strolling along its length on a sunny but rather windy Sunday afternoon. Home …

          Our flight to Durban was smooth and they even served a snack as this is common policy on South African Airlines. The small providence of Kwa Zulu Natal is something of a microcosm of South Africa itself, with its great diversity of natural and cultural endowments. Durban is both a major port and a major destination for sun worshiping beach goers...
