Power Enhanced Adventure


Power enhancing bands are having their adventure in the sun at the moment, said to utilise a holographic device implanted in a silicone wristband to improve power (obviously), balance, flexibility, overall performance and focus in pretty much all action pursuits. These bands somehow tap into natural energy fields and mystically harness them to combat any negative energy fields created by all the technology we surround ourselves with.

Never the less, since they make for a fun and funky looking fashion accessory a whole lot of dudes and dudettes are wearing them. Including, we have heard, Cristiano Renaldo who may be matching his band with his Armani hot pants. Rubens Barrichello of the Williams Formula One team fame said the first time he wore one in a race, he won!

Fathoming how they actually work requires some mind bending gymnastics of a scientific nature, which is not surprising since the bands are reputed to increase the core power of athletes by a whopping, are you sitting down? Five hundred percent! The average sports doctors and fitness gurus are nothing short of flabbergasted at these claims since the supporting data has clearly been shared with but a few, perhaps this proves it is science at such a high level, mere doctors may not even grasp the intricacies of these wonder bands.

Marketers appear to have to grasped the concept with the most agility, they clearly all wear their bands, which are being used to promote healthy mindedness in boardrooms, conference centres and we hear they are being packaged for corporate year-end tokens at a rate of knots!

We at AdventureEscapades.co.za are an adventurous bunch so we will try them and share any exciting results. We also really want to hear about your experiences with these little powerhouses. Your comments are welcome here or at our Face book wall. Meantime if you need an excuse to put your new wonder band to the test, go ahead and browse our website, we know you will find an adventure that is up to the challenge!

Turtle Adventures


Thonga Beach Lodge and Kosi Forest Lodge are about to become the turtle enthusiasts playground of choice once again! Turtle tracking begins on the 1st November at Thonga Beach Lodge and continues until 28th February each year. The Kosi Forest Lodge turtle tracking season is open from 15th November till 15th January annually.

Both lodges support the Loggerhead and Leatherback Turtle monitoring programmes. Seven species of marine turtles exist in the world's oceans today, all of them have unique lifestyles in that they travel great distances and take decades to mature. This makes turtles important indicators of ocean health. There are five species found off the Kwa-Zulu Natal Coast, namely, the loggerhead, leatherback, hawksbill, green and Olive Ridley turtles. Of these five species that occur in South African waters, only the loggerhead and leatherback females nest along our shores.

The purpose of this project is to monitor and record nesting populations of loggerhead and leatherback sea turtles along the eastern seaboard and simultaneously provide protection of the females during this vulnerable stage on the shore. Furthermore to establish an annual population census and determine distribution of nesting loggerhead and leatherback sea turtles in South Africa and Southern Mozambique.

What the Loggerhead and Leatherback Turtle Monitoring programmes have achieved so far;
• The ongoing monitoring and conservation efforts have had a positive effect on population size. Since the programme began a total of 46, 893 loggerhead and 11,509 leatherback females have nested on the beaches of The Greater St Lucia Wetland Park.
• Scientific information has been obtained about the nesting and non-nesting distribution range.
• The role of Agulhas current in distribution of hatchlings has been established.
• The conservation effort contributed to the establishment of Marine Protected Areas
• Management actions are in line with international conventions.
• International recognition and collaboration were obtained for both research and management of the breeding populations of turtles and provided guidelines for conservation activities in the South Western Indian Oceans.
• The programme served to increase public awareness and create tourism benefits along the Park's beaches.

At Thonga Beach Lodge the sightings on our nightly walks and turtle drives are recorded and submitted to the Turtle Programme. At Kosi Forest Lodge we support the community Concession that runs the Turtle Safaris. The sightings from these excursions are also submitted to the programme.

Grab the opportunity to enjoy this environmentally friendly activity when you book into Thonga Beach Lodge or Kosi Forest Lodge. Book here today!
