FUN-Travel: Durban, South Africa – Sardine Run

July 22, 2019 by  

  • In high hopes of experiencing Sardine Run…

…the Greatest Shoal on Earth

…rough seas & high winds cancel today’s ocean safari…

…so instead depart for drive to Midlands Meander.

…Museum & Freedom Walk Sculptures…

…include Amazing Mandela depiction…

…created with 50 laser-cut metal beams…

…between 20 & 31 ft in height…

…& covering a width of almost 98 ft.

  • 2nd Stop – Piggly Wiggly…

…features local artists shops at the Highgate Wine Estate…

…with gorgeous views of the vineyards & the mighty Midlands…

…in Drakensberg mountain region.

  • 3rd Stop – Howick Falls (Victoria Falls of South Africa) cascades over cliffs at 311 ft.

FUN-fact – As the sun changes its position above the monument, the effect of the tall beams on the ground also changes. This is the largest artwork using this methodology of laser-cut metal beams in the country.

Not so FF – Nelson Mandela spent 27 years as a political prisoner.
