Land Expropriation without compensation what about the San Bushmen

Land expropriation without compensation

During this time in South Africa of great political instability it has been made clear that land expropriation without compensation will be officially a part of our constitution. This now leaves us with the total confusion (in my eyes) as to who actually the land should be given back to. As a white South African, with my parents having been requested to move to South Africa in the 1970’s to help with Civil Engineering training of our people to create employment, where do I stand? Will it boil down to the simple fact that my skin is “white” that will determine if my land(that was paid for by my hard work) will be taken and will I be told to go back to where I came from? (Where did I come from?) Being born in South Africa and living almost my entire life here I feel South African.(I have no ties with Europe)

African safari tours

African safari tours are always amazing but this African safari tour would be extra special as we would see so many amazing animals in Hluhluwe Imfolozi game reserve. I had met my client in Umhlanga near Durban for their Durban day safari and we began what turned out to be a very short 2.5 hours drive to Hluhluwe game reserve. It would be the boarder between the two sections that we would enter and first head briefly into the Hluhluwe game reserve section. It was in this section we located a massive male Warthog very early on in our African safari tour.

Hluhluwe Big 5 game reserve

Our Hluhluwe “Big 5” game reserve safari from Durban began in the city where I collected my clients. It was to be a Hluhluwe game reserve safari to remember! Our day began at 06:30 and we made our way to the world famous Hluhluwe game reserve and the Umfolozi game reserve in the south. After covering the major history of Durban, KwaZulu Natal and South Africa we arrived at Hluhluwe game reserve and it was only 09:30. As it was a cool day I was really hoping we would find cats but as nature has it, you have to be at the right place at the right time.
