The exquisite and unforgettable Gwahumbe Game Reserve wins the heart of every visitor. This tranquil escape holds its own as a special destination for nature-lovers. The fact that it is a short distance from the major centres in KZN underscores its appeal – and makes it a bush sanctuary for anyone looking to quickly and easily get away from city life for a bit. From around the reserve, the striking cliff faces stand sentinel over Gwahumbe, offset by the plateau grassland and lush riverine forests. Gwahumbe lies at the confluence of the Umsunduze and Umgwahumbe River, from which it gets its name – and our very being is a tribute to the wonder of this special stretch of Africa.

DIVING WITH SHARKS Shark cage diving typically involves diving in heavy metal cages in the cold waters of Gaansbaai in Cape Town, specifically targeting the large Great White Sharks that inhabit that region. However in the warmer waters of Durban’s Aliwal Shoal, different species of shark can be found on our cage dive like Blacktip sharks, Dusky Sharks, Spinner Sharks, Tiger and Zambezi Sharks. Because these species are smaller than the Great White Shark and their main diet consists of small schooling fish. Our 4-man stainless steel shark cages are SAMSA approved, designed by an engineer for diver and animal safety. The cage is a concertina, which opens up to width 2.3 m and height 2.4m and breadth of 1m. Our shark diving cages are secured to the boat at all times in accordance with SAMSA requirements. This is truly an exciting once in a lifetime experience – bond with family, friends or colleagues as you get close up to the many species of shark found at Durban’s Aliwal Shoal.

The gentle murmur of the Indian Ocean is a constant lullaby. Here, close to the city of Durban in South Africa’s “forgotten paradise”, lies a true gem. Days at Sea – a luxury hotel with just 6 suites, is a hideaway in the true sense of the word, a refuge for lovers of nature, first-class cuisine and fine wine.
