Big ups to those who gathered on a cold wet winter’s morning for the Toti falls outing. In total there were 15 vehicles that attended.
Last year was the first time we scheduled the weekend in June rather than August. The cold weather was more bearable during this time of year compared to later in the year so we had it in June again! Never the less it was still bleddie cold. We had 9 club members and their families […]
Malcolm Anderson travels extensively in Africa and his hobby is restoring old machinery. When he comes across old engines, farm implements, vehicles, tractors, military equipment, aircraft etc. He rescues them from the scrap yard and brings them back to his farm overlooking the Byrne valley. Here he has created the Atom Engine Museum, a working […]
The Kosi outing never happened this year due to a bit of a booking mix up so Lynn Espitalier suggested to a few, what about joining them on a trip to Zingela. Zingela is a fantastic place set amongst the hills and indigenous bush on the banks of the Tugela River with the closest town […]
29th March The African Birds of Prey Sanctuary via The Inanda Valley. We met at the Hacienda, 12 vehicles in all and left at 9am, Cobus and Dion leading us into the valley. The day was overcast but the rain stayed away. I always enjoy a scenic drive in the valley, the Kraals and the […]
The Honorary Rangers of Tembe invited us to join them for four nights over the Easter Weekend. Although the Ponweni Camp is a permanent facility they are only allowed to use it on five weekends each year to support the work they do in the Park which is to support park management and to provide […]
Our first club outing for the year saw a great turn out of familiar as well as new faces. All together 13 vehicles, we set out from our meeting spot at Hacienda Pub in Monteseel just after 9am and, under guidance of Jacques Malan, descended down into the valley.
Our August club camp this year was at the Shu-Shu hot water springs in the Tugela River valley.
A lovely little place that a few of our club members have visited a number of times and this time invited the club along. Given that the campsite consisted of a sheltered piece of river bank and that the only form of development is a hand water pump at the top of the road, this was one of those bring-everything-youwill-need-yourself camps.
Camping in Eshowe and Thangami Safari Spa Thursday July 10th to Monday July 14th. A report by Sue McKenzie Gavin and I had recently enjoyed exploring the forests on the Nibela Peninsular on Lake St Lucia and in Mtunzini so we decided to spend a couple of nights in Eshowe to see the Dlinza forest. Shirley […]
The Great Gold Mine Hunt. For those of us who thought the day trip to Vernon Crookes would be a routine mild trip to this lovely nature reserve – well we were wrong. Thanks to Mike, Stewart, Wendy and Brenda that was changed completely. These four great people are all Honorary Officers and active in this reserve. They […]
