    If you are in Durban with the kids this is a great place to stay. When the sun moves from the pool area you can take the nets and fishing rods down to the beach and go rock pooling. At night time the kids loved using the cinema room and being spoilt with popcorn. The hotel excels itself in making sure you have a relaxing and enjoyable time. Our accommodation was ideal - with the adults enjoying a large and separate room and en suite and the kids down stairs with extra beds in the lower section. The manager was fantastic and helped us with ideas on where to go and what to do not just for Durban for throughout our trip.

    As often happens on in life when your expectations are moderate they can be wonderfully exceeded by a fantastic experience. Returning to Durban from the fabulous wedding at Ummgazi River we decided to spend a couple of days in "the big smoke" of Durban before returning to Fugitives Drift. A couple of days in the city allows you to shop for …

    Flew from Singapore to Johannesburg and then another short flight to Durban. Rented car at the airport.

    Stayed for one night in this colonial style hotel by the Indian Ocean.

    ... 2 planned ones have not happened which is a bit irratating as we had planned for them!

    Wednesday we had lunch at the Beverley Hills hotel another lovely place and view over the ocean! In the evening we were sitting on the balcony watching the most amazing electric storm develop in front of us. You will be pleased to know we are drinking some lovely wine and at about 2.50 a bottle very good value for money!

    ... felt cold and heavy and I was struggling to find a steady pace. After about the 65 km mark, I finally started getting my legs moving, I started feeling good again, it almost felt like my joints had just gotten greased. A very long downhill stretch started, perfect timing. I kept my body loose, and let me body work with gravity, my strides started getting longer and my legs started lifting higher, I started getting faster and faster. At the back of my head, I kept going ...
