    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.

    ... 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!

    ... the Durban/Pietermaritzburg area had too many other attractions/temptations to draw us away as well! The grand tour started the day of my arrival with a walk on the oceanside boardwalk in beautiful Durban, followed by snacks at a restaurant high on a pier overlooking the beach while watching the sun go down.

    The next day I managed a run, followed by a countryside drive with Lesley and lunch at an artsy restaurant overlooking the valley (the Joburg ...
