    Henkus i am sure they will not bother when theres a lot of people and cars at 9 mile and at the lake. What i like is that theres quite a lot of investment going on with new buildings going up in sodwana. New mall at mbaswana.

    Had rain the last two days. Will leave for hluhluwe park on tuesday as rain is expected next week.

    Hate to inform you of another robbery on the main beach yesterday afternoon. Security informed us to stay closer to the other cars on the beach. Guys got robbed of cellphones jackets wallets and so forth from 2 robbers with pangas right a the end of the open beach section. They were the last 2 cars on the beach.

    Ai jai jai. Sad indeed.

    I just don't get why some go and isolate themselves so far down and away from everyone else. Even when it is packed over the December holidays, we never ever venture to far down the beach.

    Got another ford unstuck. Gave him some tips on tyre pressures and became good friends. Spent the day on the beach and had dinner after the rugby with Nico and his family. It was awesome meeting you Nico and your awesome family. Click image for larger version.

    Tyre pressure or rather, let down the pressure of your vehicles tyres, seems to be a very alien thing to some who visit the Sodwana beach... Some might say it is worse than swearing.

    Default Sodwana Info

    Hi all


    My family and i are planning to do a trip to Sodwana Bay in December or 2024 the Last time we were in Sodwana and stayed in the National Park there was a gun battle 100 meters from our campsite between the Parks Board guys and the thief's that were ransacking your camp while you were out at the beach fortunately we were not part of the victims that their holiday was destroyed by the theft and from then we stayed at Nwabu Lodge and had no issue at all regarding the safety of our belongings and commuted to the beach from there looking forward to camping in the park again if there has been a drastic improvement in safety and security in your belongings when not at the campsite. And I would also like to know the condition of the road to Sodwana as we will be towing.
    Thanks for any advise that you may have regarding the above.

    Goeie middag,

    Was in 2019 laas in sodwana en wil net n paar goed uitvind.

    Watter dae laat hulle 4x4s op die strand toe?
    IS die pad na Mabibi om lake Sibaya nog oop?
    Enige spots om duine te ry?
    En dan watter plekke is kids friendly om n bier te gaan drink?

    Groete
