SURF ROCK FISHING.
Hole in the Wall,As i know it in Port Elizabeth,on the beach,very close to the built up suburb of Summerstrand is this unique little beach with sand and rock,a tidal pool where the sea washes into a hole in the rock and toddlers and children can spend many an hour ,playing,swimming and enjoying themselves safely while in the water.
On the rocks is where i found a peace and rest gazing out to sea while waiting for a bite on my line.
Myself and my dad loved fishing here. Fishing gear.
Hook, line and sinker.

SEAVIEW GAME PARK. HUG A CUB.
The SEAVIEW GAME & LION PARK (est. 1975) is located on the Eastern Cape’s sunshine Coast, 25 km’s west of Port Elizabeth’s city centre. Set in 120 hectares of superb bush and grassland, the Park offers the unique experience of close-up Game-viewing.
The Park boasts in excess of forty species of wildlife. Giraffe, Zebra, Wildebeest, Impala, Duiker and Monkeys roam free. Crocodile, Rock Monitors, Meerkat , Genets, Jackals, Caracal, and Baboons are housed in camps and enclosures in the sanctuary areas. They are released and allowed to roam free if possible.
Working as a volunteer you will have the rare opportunity of hand rearing lion cubs of different ages. Hand rearing means being responsible for the cubs’ wellbeing. Giving the cubs comfort, feeding them with milk formula from a bottle. Replacing their mother in all ways. Doing the mothers’ job of assisting them to urinate and defecate. (For at least the first three weeks as they cannot do this for themselves). Cuddling and just sitting with them you will enjoy your days in the company of the most sociable of all cats. They love to fall asleep on your lap! Your days on Cub’s duty will include making the various feed mixtures and preparing meat for the various age groups and having interaction with the paying public coming to see the cubs. Interacting with the public extends to assisting our talented restaurant staff during busy periods or functions.
Observing and studying the lion cubs and their behaviour you will notice the changes almost daily, such is the rate at which they grow and progress. Lion cubs soon respond to our voices and even “talk back to us”, albeit the cubs are very individual and even the litters vary. Volunteering has proven to be of such pleasurable interest that some have returned again and again!
Although this is a short overview of the Park, we trust that this information will encourage you to come to South Africa and try overseas, volunteer working.
