Share-a-Pony

minx
Visiting Share-a-Pony elicits a range of happy feelings and memories. I began my riding days when I was 11 years old, eager to ride... and terrified of horses. I had been begging my parents for years to let me start riding, and the excitement when they finally said yes was overwhelming. The first pony I rode was a little skewbald Shetland pony named Blossom. I think just about everyone who has eve...

East London | Aquarium

The East London Aquarium is a pleasant visit for little children, and the low tanks make it easy for children in prams and wheelchairs to view the sea life without needing mom or dad to pick them up. Wheelchair accessible from a separate gated entrance, entrance and aquarium are easy to navigate. With a range of fish species, beautiful seahorses, lobster, turtles and starfish, opportunity abounds...

Howick | Umgeni Valley Reserve

Yesterday I told Damian that we would see the animals at Umgeni today so this is what we did. As any mom should realise, I should have made enquiries before promising. We arrived at reception to be asked what car I drive. "A Renault Scenic," I said. "Is it very low?" the receptionist asked. "Yes it is. Very." I answered - a little cautiously now. She then informed me that the route is a 4x4 road o...

Midmar | Midmar Dam

It has been on our Midlands to-do-list to cycle at Midmar, so I decided today was the day. R20 entrance fee per person, and soon we were exploring, first by car. I couldn't believe it had taken me so long to discover this jewel of a place to cycle, picnic and just unwind! With long, scenic stretches of tarred roads, it is ideal for road cycling with Damian's buggy - the large expanse of water that...

Lidgetton Valley Road

A spontaneous country road drive resulted in a delightful rural experience of the Lidgetton Valley with many creatures crossing our paths - shy monkeys peeping at us through the branches and a small eagle, whose species I am not sure of, resting on a fence , before flying off at the sight of me snapping pics. Horses and cows in abundance and beautiful farmland either side. A lovely road I think I ...

Howick | Yellowwood Restaurant and Café

This lovely restaurant is pleasing as far as both food and family entertainment are concerned. Set on a tranquil farm with a view of the Howick Falls, the property is home to some adorable creatures – all in miniature – miniature horses and miniature donkeys, a dexter bull and a few cows, pot belly pigs, goats, dwarf rabbits, guinea pigs and some chickens. On a sunny day it was a treat to choos...

Durban | Ushaka Marine World

Ushaka is an absolute delight to keep kids amused for hours. We only had a few hours so didn't get to visit the water park, but could have spent much more time in the Aquarium as well. Being school holidays it was really busy, so often we had to wait our turn to look at the tanks. Wheelchair accessible throughout, we managed with Damian's buggy easily. At the dolphin and seal shows, prams aren't ...
