New gay resort

It is great to find new exclusively gay guesthouses, lodges or retreats in South Africa. Here is a new one just opened in Warmbaths, about 80kms north of Pretoria.

Manfields is appropriately named and promises to liven up the list of available gay resorts in this country. Here is what owners Andre and Jaco have to say about their resort: "Wake up to most amazing sunrises and fill your lungs with the fresh, crisp and crystal clear bushveld air to get you going. Go for strolls in the lovely bushveld, relax in the lounge at the bar and make friends in the splash-pools. Watch the sunset from a splash pool with a cocktail in your hand or share your greatest stories around a crackling bonfire or just allow the flames to carry you into dreamland." Check out their website by clicking on the link in this story and maybe we'll see you there!!

Desert Safari anyone?

The famed Kalahari Desert in Southern Africa just got hotter with this addition to the sand scenery...

Tourism Indaba

There were gay guys aplenty at South Africa's (in fact Africa's) largest travel conference Indaba which ended at Durban's ICC yesterday. Unfortunately there was no "Gay Destinations" stand at the show and the gay boyz had to be hunted down at their individual stands. Seen in the photos are Durban View Gay Guesthouse co-owner Llewellyn (3rd photo and right in 4th photo) with Karl of The Nest Hotel (Drakensburg) which won the Best Leisure Resort award at the AA American Express Awards ceremony, Jacob from SA Travel Centre Holidays (bottom photo) and Eddy (top photo), marketing manager of Mhondoro Lodge which was runner up in the Good Travel Guides "Best food and new Lodge" category. All of the guys were guests at Durban View Guesthouse, the city's exclusively gay guesthouse.
