It’s no secret that to date a rugby player calls for sacrifices and oodles of support… making these women truly remarkable in their own right. Read about who they are, from their careers and quirks to their favourite books and life mantras. Kate Lambie (28)   Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do: I grew up in Zululand and then the Natal midlands. I’ve been a primary school teacher for...

Because we live in an area that boasts an abundance of monkeys, it’s easy to forget how lucky we are to co-exist with them!  That being said, we must not forget that we have taken over their natural habitat, forcing them to reside and forage in unforgiving urban settings. That’s where Monkeyland KZN steps in, offering a sanctuary to confiscated, exotic monkeys and enabling a mode of ecotourism that allows us to admire our furry...

Kicking, rolling, crawling, and weaponry right here in Ballito… Not many people bear a name that reflects their looks, but Onyx, with her jet black hair and gemstone eyes, is one of them. Not many people have their black belt in the ancient art of Kung Fu either, but this nine-year-old is one of only a handful of people in the world who does. She walks up, bold and calculative, and kicks the punching bag...

In a tech-saturated world, we’ve all heard the expression “Print is a dying industry”. With rapid advancements in broadcast media, consumers are spoiled for choice. The national newspaper is no longer the sole provider of information, as consumers turn to televised news channels, an endless selection of podcasts, and of course, the grand maestro of them all: the internet.

It takes a different kind of person to delve deep and not only transform their body, but transform their outlook on life, their persona and their viewpoint on the world. Going to gym for the physical and aesthetic benefits is one thing, yet going into a workout knowing you’re working on primal instincts along with conditioning your mind and every fibre in your body, is a whole other ball game.
