Not sure. Assume the Cape area, would like to check out the interior, maybe Durban area. Wide open to suggestions. Obviously I'd like to try some mind expanding things, clothing optional beaches, wines and local music.

the clothing optional beaches are in cape town - so is the wine plus a perfect nursery for cacti is there, the ganja and the fungus is in the transkeii, it seems everyone grows poppies in pretoria. Durban also has some potent green and is a very chilled place. a road-trip(the driving kind) is essential here

Thanks. Every little bit helps. Those are some of the tough things to find out. I may post more questions here as I do more planning.

Cape town is a must, also the out door trance party vibe in summer is good here... then I would say visit the kruger park and other spots.

Hello in SA! I am stuck here in the states for a long time to come, with 4 kids travel isn't an option.

I am a djembe player that is looking to get a new authentic hand carved djembe from SA I have one that I absolutely love. Nothing sounds as good as a true twenoba wood drum. I am wondering if anybody that lives in the area would be willing to sell me/ carve/ whatever another one. I won't buy off of the internet direct because I don't trust that they are truly authentic not to mention I want the money to go to the artist not the middle man. Throw me some prices or trade items or whatnot and we will see what happens. I really would like to be able to talk to the artist, or at least know a little about him/her as I feel a person can appreciate something special like a djembe that much more if you can say you have met/talked to the artisian. Anyway any help in this matter is appreciated!

That is what is known as a termite mushroom. IT belongs to the genus

Termitomyces titanicus form Africa. I have posted here before a picture of two kids holding one over two feet in diameter.

here it is again,

See the two big ones on the termite mound in the first image of the four pictures of mushrooms from the British mycological Society

those mushies taste really nice - there are a few spp of them - the most common is the ikowa - found on termite hills after rains.
no natalensis yet - still hunting for that one.
how common is it and how close to the coast can it be found.

Hi Phlux,

I have copies of two articles sent to me by a friend in Hamburg, Germany who went to Natal buit was unable to find P. natalensis.

They are stacked somewhere in a pile of old magazines which were put into storage a few years back when I split with my wife.

I will see if I can find them.
