    Idiot off-road drivers

    Pretty close call!

    Anywhere on the beaches at Sodwana, be aware of drivers using off-road vehicles... some have to use the beach in order to unload their boats into the water, which is fair enough, but others simply use the sand as an off-road adventure, tearing along at ridiculous speeds. We had one bloke miss us by about 1/2 a meter while we were suntanning. Almost crapped ourselves.

    I have had it twice and it is not fun...! If you are traveling in this region take precautions towards Malaria. If you do not take medication in prevention and you have the following symptoms after your return go straight to your doctor and tell him you were in a Malaria region: Flue like symptoms, combined with headache, backache and fever. Remember malaria kills almost a Million people each year and the longer you wait the more the parasite will multiply in your blood – the result is fatal!

    SHARK !!!!

    I couldn't decide whether to include this as a "Must See" tip or in this section. In the end I decided to include it here because ultimately it involves wild animals in their environment, not ours.

    In Sodwana Bay (as in many places) it's very easy to to forget that you are in the wild and you must respect the wildlife. This includes in the water and on land.
