I lied

View 2013 OCEANIA - CAPE TOWN TO SINGAPORE on hasbeen's travel map.

Actually I lied. It’s East London up next, not Durban. First day was at sea & we rounded the Cape of Good Hope at night so no photos  of it from the ship but this was in May. You will just have to imagine the ship floating past over my shoulder..Note the ear muffs, it was a tad windy.


and a few more from May of Table Mountain..


Inkenkwezi Safari park

is where I’m heading today.


Botswana it’s not. There are 3 elephants here. Chobe park had 68 thousand. Anyway it should be a nice ride out into the countryside which it was & there were a few animals including a couple of Rhino way off in the distance, Giraffe various antelope & some white lions. 


You have to drive into a separate enclosure to get to the lions so whereas they could eat us, they cannot eat the other animals. Not that they showed the least inclination to eat us although I could have fed them an obnoxious American couple who were in my van.


Durban is the next port

it’s off to see some Zulu & maybe some naked ladies. Durban has quite the spectacular setting. Lovely hill views on the way out of the city & a parade in town for the upcoming African cup of nations football competition.


The Zulu village was totally fake with not a sign of Michael Cain anywhere but good fun nevertheless with the drumming & guys jumping around.



And the Zulu girls must be getting plenty to eat. A nice missionary hot pot maybe, with salad & some fava beans. Not only are they not topless you can just make out the Lycra leggings under their skirts.


There was also a little tour to see Crocodiles in concrete pools. Not too awesome.


And a very welcome cold drink at a lovely little bar attached to the Crocodile place


In the evening, Sandy & I went to the beach


& a restaurant in a beached cargo ship


where they have chopped the hold in half. One side is the restaurant & the other they filled with water & fish. Fish for my meal too of course.


anyway - that's enough excitement for one day.

Richards bay up tomorrow. Still South Africa.

And - did you glimpse the naked lady? You have to have very good eyes.
