    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 …

    she can be back on social networking. Back in Umhlanga and a short walk up the
    road to the Ocean Basket where we feasted on prawns and calamari while

    ... smiling non-stop. I crossed the Hilton where we were staying at, and decided to have my last GU. It was the moment I had been waiting for so long, it was 10:45 and I still doubted that the bronze would happen. I kept telling myself to have faith, to believe in my body, to not fill my mind with doubt. I remember entering the stadium taking very long strides. I was proud of myself, of my legs, of my lower back, nothing hurt. I wasn’t sure if it was the adrenalin, I ...

    ... side!! Ooops!! Once we were directed to our female side we were given our plates of food and ate like the locals with our hands. The white corn meal didn’t taste of much but was obviously the filling part of the meal and was good to soak up the juices from the veg dishes. They were delicious although still very hot and I burnt my fingers trying to eat!! Clearly I’m not quite a local yet! We enjoyed our meal but felt really bad that we ...
