First slack pack hiking trail for St Francis ESTI STEWART

T

HE Chokka Trail, a new 58km slack packing route through the greater St Francis and a first for the area, is now open for bookings. Ancient Khoisan fish traps, shell middens and a calamari tasting on day three are highlights of the route and a true celebration of tourism and heritage month. St Francis Bay, Oyster Bay and Cape St Francis, the rugged coastline, a unique dune bypass system, a tidal river, protected fynbos, archaeological sites, wetlands and a visit to one of South Africa’s few working small harbours, Port St Francis, are the ingredients that make up the Chokka Trail. The four day/three night route will start at the St Francis Links, from where hikers will be transported to Oyster Bay for a warm up walk to Thysbaai, where the ancient fish traps are visible during low tide. Dinner will be served on the deck of Oyster Bay Beach Lodge. On day two hikers will walk back to St Francis Bay via the Sand River, a dune bypass system and highway of rolling sand dunes with an amazing view over the Baviaanskloof Wilderness Area to the north. Shell middens can be found and at almost 18km, this is the lon-

gest section of the trail. The Cape St Francis Resort is host for the second night, and will transport hikers to Mostertshoek the next morning. The shoreline of Cape St Francis and St Francis Bay is part of the Coastal Cradle of Mankind, and together with a variety of fynbos you have a chance to see Southern Right whales, dolphins, otters and small game like duiker and bushbuck. The SANCCOB Penguin Rehabilitation Centre at Seal Point is included in the trail and the highlight of the day a calamari tasting at Port St Francis, the only privately owned working harbour in South Africa. After visiting a restored chokka boat, hikers will be transported to Brisan B&B on the Canals in time for a canal cruise before dinner. The Chokka Trail finishes with an 11km walk from The Cove via the Kromme River and Sand River into the St Francis Links, where a network of secret trails awaits in the coastal thicket, alive with birds and caracal, bushbuck, bush pig and porcupine, mongoose and genet. Individual day walks can also be arranged. More information including rates can be found on www.chokkatrail.co.za. The trail is closed from December 16 to January 7 each year.

Hoërskool voed nou leerders MONIQUE BASSON

D

IE reuk van geurige bredie vul die lug op ’n koue lente-oggend, met die naderstap kan jy byna hoor hoe die houttafel onder die gewig van ’n yslike skottel spierwit rys kreun. Jy moet net keer, of jy gaan staan self in die ry vir ’n bord stomende kos. Watertand stap jy weg, want jy weet dié maaltyd is honderde kinders se enigste bord voedsame kos vir die dag. Die 351 leerders van die Patensie Sekondêre Skool, waarvan die meerderheid uit minderbevoorregte huise kom, geniet nou elke skooldag ’n warm bord kos danksy die Departement van Onderwys se voedingskema wat onlangs by die skool op die been gebring is. Dié soort skema was voorheen tot laerskole beperk. Volgens waarnemede skoolhoof Cecil Madeley maak die voedingskema ’n noemenswaardige verskil. “Skoolbywoning het toegeneem, dissipline by die skool het in ’n groot mate verbeter en die leerders is baie meer gemotiveerd nou dat hulle by die skool kan eet,” sê Madeley.

“Die voedingskema help leerders om energie vir die skooldag te hê, asook die meer as 140 leerders van naburige plase om vir hul vervoer terug huis toe te wag.” “Meer as 140 kinders word daagliks van naburige plase na die skool en terug huis toe vervoer. Na skool kom hulle eers baie laat by hulle huise. Die voedingskema help die kinders om ten minste energie vir die skooldag te hê, asook om geduldig vir hul vervoer te wag.” Volgens Madeley is elke leerder daagliks van ’n bord kos verseker. “Daar is nie een kind in die skool wat nie van die voedingskema gebruik maak nie waar die klem op groente en vars vrugte is,” sê hy. Aldus Madeley het die funksie van die skool nou uitgebrei. “Met die voedingskema verskaf ons werk aan drie moeders wat die kook- en opskepwerk doen. Ons is werkverskaffer aan die organisasies en kontrakteurs wat voorrade aan die skool voorsien. Die skool het nou ’n besigheidskarakter aangeneem.” Skenkings van groente en vrugte is baie welkom. Die skool het verder ook ’n behoefte aan A4-skryfboeke vir leerders. Vir donasies, kontak Madelay by 0 083 723 7201.

Christina Olyn, Rosie Booysen, skoohoof Cecil Madeley en Steweline Wentzel sorg daagliks dat die leerders van die Patensie Sekondêre Skool ’n warm bord kos kry. By hulle is leerder Elroy Jack.

Kouga Wind Farm on track at Oyster Bay CONSTRUCTION of the R2 billion Kouga Wind Farm at Oyster Bay is on track with work teams upgrading access roads and casting foundation bases for the 32 turbines. When operational in the final quarter of 2014, the wind farm will generate 80MW of clean and renewable power. According to Pieter Taljaard, the site construction manager, 12 of the 32 concrete bases each of which is 20m in diametre to support the 80m high turbines, have been cast. “Progress has been very good with the weather being very kind to us. Work is generally on track and in some instances even ahead of schedule,” said Taljaard. Shipping of the turbine equipment and parts will take place between December 2013 and May 2014 with the delivery and erection

of the turbines scheduled to take place between February and September 2014, depending on the weather conditions. Work has also started on the wind farm substation and is progressing well, while the electrical long lead items and switchgear have been ordered and will be installed during the first half of 2014. Eskom is responsible for the electrical grid connection and overhead power line to the Kouga Wind Farm, and is on track to ensure the June 2014 grid connection date is met. “Individual turbines at the Kouga Wind Farm will join the grid in June 2014, with the full 32-turbines being operational by December 2014,” said Kouga Wind Farm project manager Chris Els. A defining feature of the Kouga Wind Farm

is that it far exceeds the new minimum threshold of 2.5% community participation set for each Renewable Energy Bid. The Kouga Wind Farm Community Development Trust holds a 26% shareholding in the project company and will derive income from the sale of electricity to fund health, welfare, education, local infrastructural and enterprise development projects. The Kouga Wind Farm Project team and its sub-contractors have amongst others, been involved in the following community initiatives: .As part of the infrastructure development, Power Construction and Nordex have spent in excess of R150 000 upgrading the main access road between St Francis Bay, Oyster Bay and Humansdorp

.Donated food parcels and blankets to the Sea Vista families in St Francis Bay who lost their homes when a fire broke out on Sunday 28 July 2013. .In a joint initiative with Power Construction the KWF team provides a free clinic transport service from the Oyster Bay community hall to the clinic in Humansdorp. “The wind farm is working closely with the Kouga Municipality and the local community to identify further areas of need in the area, as well as to plan its CSI initiatives in preparation for the operating phase. Once the wind farm is commercially operational the wind farm’s investment into the community, as well as that of the community trust will increase exponentially” said Mark Tanton, a director of the wind farm.

Tsitsikamma Tourism brings home prestigious award An energetic and jubilant team from the Tsitsikamma Tourism Association collected the coveted “Best Tour Operator” Award of Excellence nationally, from the organisers of the 2013 Getaway Show held at the Coca Cola Dome in Gauteng. Tsisikamma Tourism’s stand was filled with spectacular visuals of the Garden Route Region. Proteas and fynbos from the Regyne Protea Farm added to the colourful presentation. Tsitsikamma Crystal, suppliers of pristine spring water of the region, made sure that everybody got to taste this much sought after product.

AfriForum besorg oor hoër misdaad in Langkloof­distrik DIE burgerregte-organisasie, AfriForum, is besorg oor baie inwoners van Joubertina en Kareedouw nie by ’n gemeenskapveiligheidsnetwerk betrokke is nie - dit wyl misdaad hier styg. Reg Crewe, AfriForum se hoof van gemeenskapsveiligheid, sê Joubertina toon ’n dramatiese styging in alkoholen dwelmverwante misdade. Crewe sê dit is moontlik die rede vir die toename in diefstalle uit voertuie wees. Inbrake by ondernemings in die Langkloof-distrik het ook toegeneem. “Dit is nodig vir inwoners om by hulle gemeenskapspolisiëringsforums en buurtwagte betrokke te raak. AfriForum kan inwoners help om ’n veiligheidsnetwerk te

skep. Ons begin gewoonlik deur ’n radiokommunikasienet-werk te skep of om per SMS en e-pos te kommunikeer. Die volgende stap is om mekaar in krisistye te ondersteun. Soos die netwerk groei, kan die gemeenskap ander fasette byvoeg. Daar is geen twyfel nie dat gemeenskappe wat saamstaan misdaad kán hokslaan,” sê Crewe. AfriForum het aan die begin van Augustus ’n nasionale veldtog van stapel gestuur waar inwoners die diens van hul plaaslike polisiestasie kan gradeer en die veiligheid van hulle gemeenskappe en dorpe kan analiseer. Inwoners word aangemoedig om aan die meningspeiling deel te neem. Dit is op AfriForum se webblad by www.afriforum.co.za.

Visserman oorleef na anker hom bodem toe trek RIAAN MARAIS “AS die man ’n kat was, het hy Maandagaand agt van sy lewens opgebruik.” Só sê Stuart Obray, vrywilliger-paramedikus van die Nasionale Seereddingsinstituut (NSRI), na ’n ankertou om ’n man se bobeen gesnoer, hom oorboord gepluk en hy saam met ’n anker van ’n halfton onder die water gesink het. “Daai man moes ’n geluksengel op sy skouer gehad het om dit te kon oorleef.” Obray en ander lede van die NSRI in St. Francisbaai het Maandagaand sowat 25 seemyl na die skip, Rigel IV, gevaar nadat ’n noodberig uitgestuur is dat ’n bemanningslid “saam met ’n anker oorboord gegaan het”. Op die skip self het die NSRI-span verneem dat die ongeluk gebeur het onderwyl die bemanning kreefhokke, vasgemaak aan ’n lang kabel met ’n halfton anker aan die een punt, in die water gegooi het. Die ander punt van die kabel is aan ’n motor-katrol op die skip vasgemaak sodat die kreefhokke weer opgetrek kan word. Met die gooi-aksie is die 30-jarige bemanningslid (wie se naam nie bekend gemaak is nie) se been in die kabel vasgevang en is hy saam met die anker oorboord. Een van sy kollegas het dit gelukkig gesien en kon die punt van die tou lossny sodat dit om sy been losgegaan het.

“Danksy die man se reddingsbaadjie kon die bemanning sien waar hy is. Die boot is omgedraai, die man is uit die water gehelp en teen daardie tyd was ons reeds onderweg,” sê Leon Scheepers, mede-paramedikus. Aan boord het Obray vasgestel die man se been is hoog bo die knie gebreek. “Die been was ook byna drie keer dikker as die ander een weens inwendige bloeding.” By die NSRI-basis het ’n munisipale ambulans die man na die Humansdorp-hospitaal geneem. Hy is later na die Livingstone-hospitaal oorgeplaas. Hy het ’n gebreekte femur en bekkenbeen en sy toestand is bedenklik.

Stray livestock remains a challenge ALTHOUGH the Kouga Municipality has impounded just over 100 cattle since the opening of its cattle pound in Humansdorp about six weeks ago, clamping down on stray livestock remains a huge challenge. Livestock owners who do not take responsibility for their animals and the fact that the municipality must hire a trailer, do not make the task at hand any easier. According to municipal spokesperson, Laura-Leigh Randall, there has been a definite improvement in Humansdorp with livestock owners taking greater responsibility for their animals. “Jeffreys Bay remains a challenge. Livestock owners pay for the release of their animals, but then simply allow them to roam around unsupervised again. Efforts to educate these owners around the law and their responsibility as livestock owners will be increased,” says Randall. “Law enforcement efforts have been hampered by the fact that the municipality has been using a trailer on loan. This delays the response time to complaints. The municipality is in the process of procuring its own trailer which will allow law enforcement officers to respond more promptly to complaints.” .To successfully address the problem of stray animals in the Kouga, the municipality opened a cattle pound at the premises of the Kouga Fire Department in Humansdorp in the first week of August. In the past a privately-owned pound was used. The Kouga Council was not satisfied

Shell Festival makes way for Heritage celebrations THIS September marks the dawn of a new age for Jeffreys Bay, with the Shell Festival making way for the inaugural Kouga Heritage Celebrations. Set to take place on Saturday and Sunday, September 21 and 22, the Kouga Heritage Celebrations will replace the Shell Festival and lay the foundation for a new festival to be presented from next year. Tourism portfolio councillor Virginia Camealio-Benjamin said the Kouga Heritage Celebrations would showcase the colourful cultural mix of the Kouga area, including Khoisan, isiXhosa and Afrikaner. The programme will include dancing, music, food and indigenous games. It will take place at Dolphin Beach, Jeffreys Bay. There will also be a market where the local community will have the opportunity to sell their wares. The market section will run until September 24.

“September is both Tourism Month and Heritage Month. The celebrations will pay tribute to our rich cultural heritage and acknowledge the importance of tourism as an economic driver of the area,” she said. A heritage awareness campaign for local grade eleven learners will furthermore be held in the run-up to the celebrations. The learners will be taken on a heritage tour of the Hankey area on September 19. The purpose of the tour is to raise awareness of local heritage sites and to introduce young people to the career opportunities available in the heritage field. A Rhodes University heritage expert will be among those to address the children on the day. The celebrations and awareness campaign are a joint initiative of Kouga Municipality, the Department of Sport, Recreation, Arts and Culture, the Cacadu District Municipality and East Cape Parks and Tourism.

Man verskyn in hof vir moord ’n Jong man van Sea Vista is aangekla vir moord na hy ’n ander man met ’n mes doodgesteek het. Volgens lt. Gavin Muller van die St Francisbaai-polisie, het die betrokke voorval omstreeks 19:00 op 1 September in Sea Vista plaasgevind. “Die oorledene, Eldrich Ruiters (22) en Calvin Christopher Plaatjies (25) het oppad huis toe van ’n nabygeleë taverne in

’n rusie betrokke geraak ,” sê Muller. “Hulle het vermoedelik gestry oor geld wat tussen hulle verdeel moes word. Tydens die russie het Plaatjies glo vir Eldrich met ’n mes in die nek gesteek.” Volgens Muller is Ruiters twee ure later weens bloedverlies in die hospitaal oorlede. Plaatjies het verlede Woensdag in die Humansdorp Landroshof op ’n aanklag van moord verskyn.

Cycling through Africa at 65 MONIQUE BASSON

A

FTER three years of planning Jeffreys Bay’s own great adventurer who have crossed the continent in search of the ultimate adventure, will now embark on a journey of a lifetime. Not only will he revisit some of his favourite countries and small towns, but will also for the very first time explore North Africa - all from the comfort of his bicycle. At the age of 65, Rob Lindegger will undertake a solo cycle through Africa. Rob, who left Underberg in Cape Town in April, has spent winter in Jeffreys Bay and, come November, will be cycling to Cape Town where he will finalise the African leg of his trip. From Cape Town he will cycle up the west coast through Namibia, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda, the Sudan/ Ethiopia and Egypt, across into Europe and to Spain. Once in Spain, he plans to look at the possibilities of cycling east. “I am in no rush, I gave up rushing when I gave up work. I sold all my worldly possessions and this is now my way of life - all 51kg of it,” says Rob. With this adventure, a life long dream will come true. “In 2001, my wife lost her safari business in Tanzania with the 9/11 and we returned to South Africa bankrupt. When we arrived here, we only had 13 tin trunks of possessions and three cats. I swore then I would do some

sort of trip through Africa. In Ballito I was introduced to Rotary International and planned a 10 year solo circumnavigation. Due to circumstances we put the ride on hold. But, I was not prepared to just give up,” says Rob. “Now, 12 years later, the time is right.” He says: “I originally planned to buy a boat, but then things changed and I decided to walk through Africa with a pram. Now, with the dream about to become a reality, I have swopped the pram for a bicycle.” According to Rob, who has always enjoyed an adventure and travelled most of his life, the travelling has so far been physically and mentally rewarding. “It has opened up my eyes to the beauty around me and I have met some lovely people. You miss so much when you go home after work and watch television.” And how long did he train beforehand? “The ride is the training - the training along the way is part of the experience. I plan to ride at least 30km in the morning and another 30km in the evening.” Rob believes that it is very important to travel as light as possible. “I only carry with me my clothes, cooking gear, camping gear, camera, food, toiletries, first aid kit and the necessary paperwork. “Food is limited to the basics: jungle oats for 4 to 5 days, pasta, tea and coffee, packets of pasta sauce and water. I buy fresh fruit and vegetables and occasionally treat myself to a meal at a local Wimpy. “Once in Namibia I will have to carry more

food and water for the longer distances between towns.” He says: “If my health does not keep, I will complete the journey by any other means necessary. Finishing the trip is the most important thing - no matter how long it takes or what mode of transport I must use,” said Rob. Rob is doing the ride for a number of reasons. Firstly to promote Rotary International and secondly to raise funds for Pevensey Place in Underberg, Cape Town. But, more importantly, to illustrate that there can be an active life after 60.

To date, he has spent R48 000 on his journey. This includes buying the bike, clothing and necessary gear. “There is so much out there - grab it. If you have the capability and means, get out and do it. Slow down, stay healthy and enjoy. Take your partner by the hand - if you do not have a partner, take yourself by the hand, that is why God gave you two hands - and begin,” says Rob.

Pantry offers hope and help MONIQUE BASSON SKIPPING dinner, eating less, eating less well or not even knowing where your next meal will come from. This is what many people face every day. A local samaritan now hopes not only provide those in need with much-needed food, but also to make a lasting difference with a heaping dose of compassion - all with the help of the community. Samantha du Toit recently established the Food Pantry in Jeffreys Bay. According to her, the Food Pantry is a critical link between food and the people who need it. “Food insecurity impacts people in all walks of life. We want to reach them all - from working families to senior citizens,” says Samantha. According to Samantha, the Hope Pantry is

a God inspired idea. “So many people in Jeffreys Bay are struggling to make ends meet and go to bed hungry at night. With the project, we hope not only to feed those who are hungry, but to also give them hope. “One must have compassion, that is what compels me to do something. By fulfilling physical needs in our community and distributing food, we aim to show everyone they are loved and valued.” Samantha says that the Hope Pantry is an all-volunteer non-profit organisation. “Our mission is to feed children, families and everyday people who go hungry for reasons ranging from money shortage to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. “We are appealing to the community to get involved and help fight hunger in our town. Many of us have friends and family to turn to when the going gets tough, but what if your

family could no longer help and you had nowhere else to go? “Hunger touches every community and with food prices rising, many families can’t even afford the basics. Open your heart and cupboards - together we can make a difference.” For more information, Samantha du Toit at 0 072 289 6180. How to get involved KVolunteers with cars to drop off food.

Boskloof Hiking Trail a must MONIQUE BASSON

N

EED a break away from the city? Then put on your hiking boots, grab your bottle of water and set off on foot to explore the magnificent flora that the Kouga has to offer. You could not pick a better spot than the Boskloof Hiking Trail on the outskirts of the picturesque Humansdorp where you will be able to see, smell and touch the variety of plants and trees and experience nature from up close. The trail is short and easy, perfect for anyone keen to experience nature without too much effort. The day I went on the hike, the weather conditions were perfect - cool winds and blue

skies overhead. Our group consisting of members of Humansdorp Tourism and learners from Humansdorp Secondary School, set off in anticipation of cool bush, streams and beautiful views. Once on the trail all sight and sound of civilisation miraculously disappeared and it felt as if we were kilometres from Humansdorp. Bird song, some of the most incredible scenery and spring flowers accompanied us as we headed down the trail. I confess to moaning silently under my breath as a downhill inevitably means an accompanying uphill, but it wasn’t until later that we had to ascend - and it wasn’t all that challenging. Yellow wood trees some as old as 800 years, neat little flowers, fynbos, rocks, eucalyptus trees, September bushes, assegaaibos, acacias, coast aloes and numerous river cross-

ings met us along the way. After about two hours of drinking in the breathtaking scenery and a few down- and uphills, we reached the end of the trail. There are two access points to the Boskloof Hiking Trail, either from the north-east corner of the traffic/fire department grounds just past the Koelkor abattoir, or alternatively across the road from the offices of MooreStephens accountants, at the eastern end of Voortrekker Street, leaving Humansdorp on the road to Jeffreys Bay. It can be enjoyed as a short trail of about 50 – 60 minutes, by taking the marked short cut, or as a longer walk of about 1½ - 2 hours, depending on your pace. It is far better to take three or more hours and savour the beauty of nature rather than rushing it. If you start from the Jeffreys Bay road, the first 100 metres of the trail follow an Eskom

power line, but once you have crossed the Apple Express railway line, you are surrounded by thicket vegetation and short forest until the point where the trail drops down into the kloof and follows the stream through temperate forest back to the railway line. The Boskloof trail provides a wonderful excursion for nature-loving families and school outings and can be enjoyed by young and old alike. Pack some light refreshments or a picnic basket and some sun-screen and enjoy a day out in one of the area’s secret beauty spots. On windy days when the beaches are miserable, the Boskloof trail is sheltered from the wind for most of its length. A walking stick will help you to cross the rive,r especially if it is in flood. For more information, contact Humansdorp Tourism chairperson, Raccinne Khan at 0 081 271 3313.
