We are so proud of both you guys holding up the flag for South Africa at such a prestigeous competition.
The Facebook group Gay Directory South Africa is the largest gay Facebook group with over 4 200 members and has just been re-vamped. Created by Dave Mc Naught of Durban View Guesthouse the directory has been steadily growing and gives an easy link to nationwide gay interest groups, accommodation in the various provinces and more...
Check out the Gay Directory South Africa here.
Our guests from Paris Fabien and Ugo did not realise how big South Africa is and that distances to drive between our major cities are great. So if you're wanting to visit the Kruger National Park and the St Lucia Wetlands Park, don't give yourself only 1 day to stay over in Durban. Firstly our Guesthouse is one of the few exclusively gay guesthouses in South Africa, we we are worth a few days visit in itself. Also Durban is the warmest city on the east coast of South Africa and our beaches and Indian Ocean are legendary. So be sure to include a few days to visit us here.

Dave of Durban View Guesthouse and Colette of Bent Promotions are working to bring some fun to the Guesthouse for our Ladies Weekend in April and the Rooftop Sundowners on Sat 9 April.
Accommodation bookings for the April weekend are open and we hope to have a good number of local ladies for the Sundowner event. Colette has created a Facebook event and details of the Ladies Weekend are also on our blog here and on our Facebook Ladies Event page.
I love learning about places I have never been to and Mexico is one of them. Meet Vince, a Mexican who is living in Texas, but working while studying and presently on assignment in Limpopo Province and here in Durban for a quick visit. Vince only came out to his family in December and is still on his journey of discovery. Great to have you with us in Durban.
