    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.

Went down to the lagoon on my birthday morning, Gareth got me a cool new cd called 'The Great South African Trip' the front cover happens to have a yellow camper van on it just like ours! After a lot of driving, a couple of breakdowns and bump starts later we made it back a day late but still with enough time to enjoy ...

    ... As we passed the huge tankers and boats I couldn't help but notice how small we were compared to these huge (some the size of a football pitch) boats from all over the world, one flag I spotted was from Paraguay, god knows what that had brought in!

    After a few minutes we arrived at our next spot and threw our lines in. Another few bites later and in the distance we saw a speed boat heading towards us and it got closer we realised it was THE POLICE!!!! ...
