“Families are the compass that guides us. They are the inspiration to reach great heights, and our comfort when we occasionally falter” – Brad Henry
We often get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life’s daily routines. While planning and attempting to safeguard our future we forget to savour life’s little pleasures. Get your family together for some of the fun-filled activities that KwaZulu-Natal hosts.
Head to the beach
KwaZulu-Natal boasts beautiful sunkissed shorelines throughout the coast! Take advantage of the beautiful year-round warm weather and steal a few moments from your day to go for a seaside walk. Don’t forget to pack an umbrella, sunscreen, and snacks for a pleasant day out. Durban presents the historic beachfront and its many facilities. Savour an ice-cream cone while walking on the promenade with friends or visiting Mini Town with the grandkids, the beachfront is the ideal spot to have some family fun.
A helping hand
Your skills or experience could help others. Whether it is teaching families to budget, cook or get creative, use your skills to impart on others. Get involved with your local church initiatives or create one of your own and use some of your time to lend a helping hand.
Bond over a board game
Experiencing rainy weather or want a more laid-back afternoon inside? Opt for an entertaining boardgame with the whole family. With a range of options from scrabble to 30 seconds, a board game can be the perfect mix of entertainment and education that will create lasting memories.
Live on the wild side
Another asset that KwaZulu-Natal boasts is the easy access to wildlife. With a plethora of game reserves and animal farms, you have an unlimited choice of exciting spots to road trip to with your family or group of friends. Head to the Flag Animal Farm to enjoy the farm activities and shows with your grandkids or drive to one of the game reserves and delight in nature’s offerings.
Regardless of what you choose, making the most of every moment involves connecting with your community and getting in touch with your family and friends. Always remember that being active in life and engaging with loved ones around you, reminds us of the things that really matter.
