Durban: Giants Castle Rock Art, The Midlands & Mandela Capture Site

Forget the ocean, let’s hunt some vistas. Road trip inland towards the Maloti-Drakensberg World Heritage Site before arriving at the rich emerald Giants Castle Nature Reserve. Meet our Anthropologist, Dr Jeremy Hollmann, who’ll help you unlock this mysterious and interesting place. <br><br>Dr Hollmann will guide you through the rugged terrain to the Main Caves and delve deeper into the anthropology of the SAN people. At Main Caves you will have a chance to take in the exhibit which depicts SAN/Bushman as they are thought to have looked and lived.<br><br>Tuck into lunch at the Nottingham Road Brewery (own cost) before journeying along the Midlands Meander. Visit to the internationally acclaimed Ardmore Ceramics where you can expect an exhibition of creativity. Finish the day with an iconic stop at the Nelson Mandela Capture Site for a peek into South African notorious history and a bucketlist photograph.

This is a bric-a-brac shop par excellence! Name any kind of small fare you can think of - jewellery, coasters, incense, crystals, sculpture, wood-carving, glasses, mugs, scarves - it just goes on and on. It is difficult to know where to look. It has a distinctly Eastern flavour and the clothes are exactly the kind you can never find in any normal clothes shop. One could spend a whole day there - next time I will, and take lots of money because it is just too difficult to choose.

My husband and I stumbled upon this gem on our recent visit to the Midlands on Friday, 31 March 2017. As we entered the store my eyes immediately fell on the semi-precious stones set in silver at the counter. There was such an excellent variety of high quality jewelry on display that I first had to pick a few items to put aside. The owner was very friendly and effortlessly guided me when I indicated that I am interested in a particular pendant and a pair of earrings. With stars in my eyes I did not browse any further on all the other interesting items in the shop. We will certainly go back on our next visit to the Midlands. Not to be missed!
