        There was a drought in the land 23 June 2015

        An early morning message woke me from my sleep. The repeated reminder to pick up my message dragged me from my bed to my phone charging itself away on the kitchen bench. As I tried to open my bleary eyes and squinted to try and focus, I could see that there were three messages ….. all of them with the same message. Please bring water with you to Candu when you come tomorrow, we have no water !!!

        Since my first trip to South Africa in 2012 I have been hearing about this mysterious, serene, majestic and peaceful place called “Candu” which is in the Eastern Cape state of South Africa, about an 8-10 hour drive south east of Durban.

        Candu is also home to the Xhosa Tribe peoples who have lived and farmed the Eastern Cape area for over 300 years. Candu is also on the main N2 south highway that runs from Durban and down to ...

        Candu is a township about an hour and half out of East London on the way ...

        ... welts with intense itchiness to boot.The reaction didn't go down until I took antihistamines a few days later. A bit of a bummer but on the positive side we did manage to go for a snorkel with some humpback whales which was incredible! The massive barnacle speckled creatures were quite happy to let us observe them for a bit before elegantly diving down and out of sight into the endless blue. Truly spectacular and totally worth the jellyfish sting :) The surf wasn't ...

        ... Shixini. Dowwe Dolla wanted to take up on a couple of "unpaved" roads that did not exist but she got us there in the end. Much to our despair, Shixini was just unspoiled coastline with no campsite to mention. A few locals fishing and that was it. At least I could take a couple of pics of cactuses next to the river LOL. We were running out of daylight time and had to make our way to Dolphin View and Kobb Inn (Qora Mouth) in the hope to find ...
