Rhett and his wife Phillipa have both lived in Africa all their lives, and have been married for 15 years. Initially based in Zimbabwe they moved to South Africa in 2002, driven by their passion for the Kwazulu-Natal Midlands area, which is commonly referred to as the Midlands Meander. One hour’s drive south gives you the warmth of the popular Durban coast boasting both north and south coasts which host some of the most beautiful beaches in Africa. To the north within easy reach is the splendour of the famous Drakensberg Mountains.
