All back into the car for the trip down to Durban, but first a visit to Dlinza Forest. A very nice place with lush jungle vegetation.



First we did some very cool canopy walk that took us up above the huge trees on some boardwalks. Next we did a 2km walk down in the forest proper.

We saw some nice birds including emerald cookoo, trumpeter hornbill, crowned hornbill and purple crested laurie. We also saw a common duiker and a cool looking grasshopper. Unfortunately I'd been wanting to see some tree frogs, but no luck!



Tried a few more gift shops for hippos before returning to the noisy Tekweni hostel in Durban, we were put in what was a very comfortable room, but from the outside it looked very much like a garden shed to me!

We met back up with Liam and James before heading out to the flee market on the water front. There after much searching I finally decided on a hippo, although not perfect it was good enough.



We also visited another flee market close to the stadium, unfortunately not too much in the way of souvenirs there, but one place made a cracking latte!

Football, beer and chicken kebabs cooked on a braii (BBQ) at Tekweni hostel for my last night in Africa!
