    We signed up for the brown, 8.7km trail walk. Unfortunately we got terribly lost as we followed the "house sign" & not the "running man sign". As we enjoyed the besutiful scenary the view, the nature & the quiteness among the sugarcane plantages we realized after a bit more thsn 10km that we would not make it back to base camp before the heavy rain would start. Called the camp & they sent someone to pick us up & bring us back. Very great day. Pleasant experience.

    Even while everyone is battling with Covid, this little gem gives one a chance to break free with the kids to have some family time. The place is pretty busy with mainly families with small children. The take aways are adequate and not too pricey. The Christmas lights are very pretty and a good draw card. Well worth a visit

    We did a tour with Gary, and Ursula was there as well (23rd October) . This was a fun and informative experience. Gary was very accommodative, and answered all our questions. The beer is great, and interestingly - the same family lineage associated Time Anchor Distillery (Mirari Gin).

    Very convenient easy access to this beach directly infront of several blocks of apartments in Ballito.
    Only problem is that whilst we were there, there were many many people allowed to drink alcohol on this beach. They often left the beer bottles and other rubbish on the beach towards the end of the day.
    The lifesavers do a great job.

    This is still one of those small family holiday villages where you can still hear the roaring sea at your doorstep and where you are one of only a few visitors in the area. Still a little undisturbed gem. Walking for kilometers on the beach is still possible. A nice tidal swimming pool is available and a well-known restaurant for curries. The airport is near and surrounding towns have facilities to buy food and groceries. Lovely holiday resort.

    We visited MonkeylandKZN today. We were greeted warmly and were informed about our excursion by our friendly guide Thuli. We took a short trip up to the forest area, which covers an area of 23 hectares. We first went to the area where they are rehabilitating monkeys that have either been given to them from zoos or monkeys that have been confiscated from people who had them as pets. We saw capuchin monkeys, ringtail lemurs, black & white ruffed lemurs, buff cheeked gibbons, squirrel monkeys, spider monkeys & red duiker. The cafe/restaurant is not open due to the affects of Covid. I would highly recommend this trip for the whole family. It takes about 1 1/2 hours. Let’s support these people who are trying their best to keep a float.

    Family run small reptile sanctuary and exhibit. We had a personal guided tour through the exhibit which is a work in progress. It was super interesting and informative and their passion for snakes and other reptiles is inspiring.

    The walk to the beach from the resort is nit elderly friendly. The beach is long and clean and swimming is a pleasure.

    I stayed here for my birthday as a treat. We booked a suite which was very beautiful. Rooms are large but you can hear your neighbour in the toilet and everything that goes on in adjoining suite.Very beautiful but restaurant service incredibly slow. There was no water in the little tributaries. It felt a little claustrophobic facing a wall of trees. Overall, nice getaway to just relax and read.

    This smaller centre is less of a mall or even shopping centre and is a collection of great businesses that include the Chamber of Commerce, a coffee shop and more recently Tash B Pilates - to name a few.

    This is rated in the top 10 things or places to go when in Ballito on trip advisor and while we're fans of the centre it is perhaps not a true reflection of a top 10 attraction.

    Thank you so much for this once in a lifetime experience Graeme! You treated my mom with the greatest respect. Thank you also for convincing me to fly, it was an amazing experience! You are an excellent pilot with a passion for flying.

    I had the most incredible day of pampering at Secrets Health, Beauty and Day Spa. The staff were absolutely exceptional, attentive and always smiling. The atmosphere is so relaxing with such a beautiful view and Karen just made the experience that much more amazing! Constantly checking in to see how I was enjoying the day and made me feel at home. Such a lovely day and most definitely will be back!
