During our visit to Durban we visit this church and it is amazing. The interior has figures in stone that counts Jesus story and it is very well maintained. The back of the church worths a visit too, because it has beautiful stone work.

Good test of skill required here. Lots of trees and the river to contend with.If you like Golf you will enjoy this course. Go early as it can be very hot in March
