FREE STORIES

Share our wonders...

It was a warm winter’s day in the Imfolozi game reserve. Arthie and I sat silently in our car as 23 elephants towered over us as they moved past. Around us car loads of fellow tourists sat humbled and amazed in the presence of these huge creatures. Majestically and gracefully the elephants disappeared into the surrounding African bush.

We had just overnighted in the park. A bed in the more economical huts costs less than US$30 per adult, with a daily conservation levy of US$ 10.

" 'Imfolozi' the heart of the Zulu Kingdom, the home of the White Rhino, where wilderness trails take you along mighty rivers wandering through thorn savannah inhabited by the big five of African legend.
Hluhluwe Imfolozi Park is the oldest game reserve in Africa proclaimed in 1895. It was the exclusive hunting preserve of the Zulu kings who protected the area by proclaiming conservation laws long before any formal protection." - source http://www.kznwildlife.com/umfolozi_dest.htm

Why do we live in South Africa? For me there are many more defining moments. Here are some:

Seeing:-

  • whales surface off the Wild Coast, with a monstrous spout of water flying high into the air.
  • the beautiful fields of wild flowers in the Western Cape.
  • the dolphins surfing down the waves next to surfers on a KwaZulu Natal beach
  • lions feeding in the open at Pilanesberg reserve near Sun City.
  • A leopard lazily hanging over a branch in the Kruger National Park waiting for its prey.
  • the multitude of stars that can be seen on a back-road in the Free State.

Feeling:-

  • the power of a warm all-enveloping stopper wave on the Umgeni river and the immense sense of joy when breaking free of its grasp in my kayak.
  • the excitement of a Formula one powerboat race, in Benoni.
  • the quiet splendour of an early mountain dawn in Mpumalanga.
  • the unity in diversity when we won the Rugby World cup and the 2010 Soccer World cup bid.
  • The warm winter sun on my face.


Hearing:-

  • the humour and colourful language of a group of Cape fisherman and their ladies.
  • Johnny Clegg and Sipho Mchunu of Juluka and Savuka fame, in harmony and in unity.
  • the roar of a local rugby or soccer crowd.
  • an African choir in full voice
  • The call of a fish eagle at Inanda dam.


Tasting:-

  • the smells and flavours of a delightful Durban curry.
  • a fire-cooked mielie bought on the side of the road.
  • Sweetmeats at the Hare Krishna Temple
  • Vetkoek, a boerewors roll or koeksusters at a sports event.

Experiencing:-

  • the magnificence of Windy Corner in the great Drakensberg mountains.
  • the bark and proximity of baboons in the Northern Province.
  • hot Amarula coffee whilst watching the seals in the Cape Town’s Waterfront.
  • the shark and fish tanks, in the shipwreck, at Ushaka Island in Durban.
  • a field of green and gold sunflowers in the Free State.
  • the delight of a fellow South African as I greet them in their own language.

Yes, ours is a country of wonder and delight. A beautiful part of the world and the African continent where the East, West, North and South have found ways to be and to live in harmony. From the dark of the past we have grown a place of light. We have become an example of how people who focus on peace will find their answers together.

South African’s often forget that all countries have their challenges and their wonders. As a people we are often quite loud about our difficulties and strangely silent about our land’s unique offerings and delights.

As we grow as a united nation and build our future, it is important that we invite people from around the world to experience the wonders of our land. Let them know what we have to offer and of the warmth of our people. Share stories, experiences and information with them and invite them to visit South Africa. They can find out more at web-sites such as, http://www.southafrica. com/ and http://www.tourism. org.za/.

You and I are on the front line of development of our country and Africa. I am amazingly proud of our land and revel each day in its warmth and glow. It is such a wonderful place to be. I am sure that you feel the same way. Let’s build the future together. Share your feelings for all that is amazing about our country, as I share with you today!

WOW!

Talk about 101 reasons to feel patriotic!

Thanks for e-mail guys AND the refreshing feeling of being "Proudly South African".

SS- Student, Durban, South Africa.

**********

I like to see and hear positive things, also about our country. We are blessed if we are able to see the positive and the beauty you recorded. The past few days many things seemed more positive. Maybe its just me managing to see things more positively..

Anyway, I like hearing somebody saying positive constructive things about SA.

Now, if we empower more people, focus on opportunities, understanding, tolerance, peace merit, etc...
