“COMING TOGETHER IS A BEGINNING; KEEPING TOGETHER IS PROGRESS; WORKING TOGETHER IS SUCCESS.” – HENRY FORD

Indaba 2013

Arriving at King Shaka International Airport in Durban for the 2013 Indaba we were greeted with a wet welcome. Rain, accompanied by a biting chill, contradicted the legend of Durban's warm weather. This meant that the first day of Indaba on 11 May was a busy one, as the prospect of being indoors was a good one. Taking place at the Durban International Convention Centre (ICC), this year was the 34th Indaba since its inception in 1979...

All Creatures Great and Small

The National Press Club's decision to declare the rhino as "Newsmaker of the Year" in 2012 was met with consternation and indignation by many. Trevor Noah recently commented on Twitter that "Those red Rhino horns on cars are so cute. Remember when we used to do that for human beings?"

The Rhino Horn Mystery

Many of you may have seen me when you visited Inverdoorn and went on a safari. For those of you who have not had the pleasure of meeting me, my name is Balekha and I came to the game reserve with my mother. I am a white rhino, but it's a very silly name because I'm actually grey and so is the black rhino. Both of us are African rhinos and there are also three other types of rhinos. The other three are Asian and they are: the Indian...
