Suited up Blaze and Peter rode into Rorke's Drift on their bikes and I followed in the Toyota to be meet in the grounds of the school by Mr Zulu and the whole primary school with a group of boys from the high school across the road.

Lunch is at Nicolson’s Cafe but ...

We saw a huge group of hippos making strange, echoing noises to communicate with each other. We saw one croc – they are slow at this time of year, thankfully, because the winter is cold for them. We also saw 2 Bull Shark fins which we had no idea lived in the area but apparently are very aggressive – so not a kayak ...
