Nikia Art (Nic Grobler)

Nic Grobler’s art can be viewed at his gallery in Ramsgate, Nikia Art, which stocks some fabulous original sculptures that portray messages of hope. Nic Grobler is a talented South Coast sculptor who is famous for his meaningful “art with a message.” Nic intertwines his passion for theology with his art to create pieces that portray positive messages and tell stories, many of them Biblical. Combining his love of fine art with his interest in theology at university level, led Dr Grobler to receive a BA in fine arts, a B.Th degree, an M.Div and Doctorate of Theology. This wealth of knowledge and passion is evident in all his unique pieces.   Nic creates pieces that seek to evoke emotions in the viewer and so, naturally, he has a keen interest in Impressionist work. His work is remarkable in capturing, not only the actions of his subjects, but the emotions they feel. Nature... read more

Fishing on the KZN South Coast

The KZN, South Coast offers some of the finest angling areas in the world. Here are a few of the famous and not-so-famous spots to try your luck: Famous Fishing Spots – Scottburgh & Pennington Famous Fishing Spots – Umzumbe & Port Shepstone Famous Fishing Spots – Margate Pier & Lee Rock Famous Fishing Spots – Pot Hole & Orange Rocks Famous Fishing Spots – Shirley Avenue, Ramsgate Famous Fishing Spots – Trafalgar Famous Fishing Spots – Palm Beach High Rock, Ladder Rock & Splash Rock, Port Edward The deep water spots can produce large sandsharks and a variety of rays especially during the hot summer months. Casting and fast retrieving of surface ‘poppers’ may attract Kingfish during summer although other species cannot be ruled out. Casting with ‘spinners’ in the early morning or late afternoon during autumn and winter may bag you a King Mackerel, Yellowtail, Kingfish, Garrick or Natal Snoek.... read more

Famous Fishing Spots – High Rock, Ladder Rock & Splash Rock

Fishing is much more than fish.  It is the great occasion when we may return to the fine simplicity of our forefathers.  ~Herbert Hoover Palm Beach High Rock (S30 59.322 E30 16.500) This is a well known deep water spot to the south of Trafalgar. Whilst it is a productive fishing spot, it is an awkward fishing platform and not for the novice angler. Ladder Rock (S31 01.050 E30 15.177) This is a fishing spot which should only be visited by the novice with the purpose of viewing. Even the most experienced local anglers treat this deep water point with the greatest of respect as many a one has been unexpectedly washed off this point, most often with serious consequences. Be warned! Splash Rock (S31 02.989 E30 13.779) Any angler who has visited Port Edward will know Splash Rock. This presents a good, relatively safe deep water fishing platform... read more

Famous Fishing Spots – Trafalgar

Good things come to those who bait.  ~Author Unknown Trafalgar (S30 57.164 E30 18.051) This is a Marine Protected Area although fishing with a rod and line is permitted. There is safe daytime parking at Trafalgar main swimming beach, where the family can relax. Beach fishing is the order of the day and this is prime edible fish water (bream, rockcod etc.) and one should start fishing from the tidal pool and work one’s way south. Expect to find bays and lots of broken reef so take the appropriate tackle. Don’t venture into the fishing area alone as it can become a little isolated as you move... read more

Famous Fishing Spots – Shirley Avenue, Ramsgate

There are two types of fisherman – those who fish for sport and those who fish for fish.  ~Author Unknown Shirley Avenue (S30 54.236 E30 20.404) This is a deep water spot, situate just south of Ramsgate. A good fishing platform, but take care on spring high tide. Bring the family and a picnic basket. There is also opportunity to cool off in the rock pool close by. Relatively safe parking is close... read more

Famous Fishing Spots – Pot Hole & Orange Rocks

Nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught Pot Hole & Orange Rocks (S30 49.654 E30 24.210) These two deep water spots are found alongside each other between St.Michaels and Uvongo. Pot Hole can be a little challenging for novice anglers and the sea must be closely watched on spring high tides. Orange Rocks, immediately south, is an easier fishing platform with similar fishing opportunities on offer. Swimming beaches are a way off but take along the family and a picnic basket and simply enjoy the environment. There is ample safe... read more

Oribi Vulture Viewing Hide

Nature’s refuse collectors on our doorstep Vultures are usually associated with our wild open spaces and national parks, where they squabble over the rotting remains of a lion or leopard kill. However, the hinterland of our piece of paradise on the South Coast, is a haven for the largest of the African vultures, the Cape Vulture Gyps coprotheres. Nine species of vulture are to be found in Southern Africa, all of which are under immense pressure for survival. Poisoning is a major problem, with large numbers of vultures feeding on carcasses that have been baited by farmers to control jackal, baboon or other predators. They quickly succumb to the ingested toxins. Veterinary drugs, such as Diclofenac, used to treat livestock, are also highly toxic to vultures. Indian vulture populations declined by 99 per cent as a consequence of Diclofenac. Another very worrying turn of events is that rhino poachers... read more
