Scuba Diving at Sodwana Bay, South Africa

  • March 25, 2020

http://www.robertwedderburn.com/videos/ Driving to Sodwana Bay Being relatively new to scuba diving, I have wanted to make a road trip up to Sodwana Bay to scuba dive for a few months now. The plan was for Sandy and her cousin Carol from New York, to both complete their PADI Open Water Certification at Coral Divers and for me to go along to get in a few dives.

Mafadi Peak Summit Hike

At the summit of Mafadi Peak, 3410 masl, the highest mountain peak in South Africa The Morning Of The Climb On Tuesday Morning I woke up at 5am and I warmed up the car, and I was ready to go, but just as I was leaving the house I had to go back inside and work till 10am, as I had no option but to get the work done before I left. I wasn’t sure if it was even worth going now, knowing very well that it would be crazy to try and hike up the first two days of the hike in only an afternoon. I just hoped that I would get to the top of Judge’s Pass before sunset at 7pm. I finally got in my car at 10am...
