The caravan that floats like a boat

I am not sure if I absolutely love or hate the Sealander… Which is also known as the caravan that floats like a boat. Watch this video to see this crazy contraption in action and let us know if you think it’s HOT or NOT!

A wacky inventor is hoping to makes waves in the world of ‘glamping’ after creating an amphibious caravan. The brainchild of German designer Daniel 9 Km/h on water. The 33-year-old start-up entrepreneur had relaxation in mind when he created the Sealander, which can be towed along by a car to an ideal spot for boating.

If you prefer the idea of remaining safely on land while enjoying nature on your next glamping getaway make sure to check out our luxury tented accommodation

Health benefits of visiting Oribi Gorge Hotel

Adrenaline Can Help Strengthen Immunity
It’s long been established that chronic stress is bad for overall immunity. However, quick bursts of adrenaline and stress may actually work to strengthen the immune system and immune functions. Much like regular exercise (which is a moderate, short-lived stress for the body), allowing adrenaline to penetrate your system in short bouts with a period of recovery can lead to stronger immune functions and overall immune health. This means less sickness in the future, making more time for adventure!

Adrenaline Can Enhance Overall Performance
The notion of working best under pressure can sometimes ring very true. If you’re looking for perform your best¬, a little stress and adrenaline can help—up to a certain point. Various studies have shown that stress-induced heart rates between 115 and 145 BPM can lead to enhanced complex and gross motor skills. However, it’s important not to let the stress get too high. After 145 BPM, performance can begin to deteriorate. Therefore, it’s best to let the stress and adrenaline run its course. But do not let the fear steer or become too out of control.

Adrenaline Leads to More Confidence and a Better Sense of Self
When have you ever truly regretted trying something new or pushing yourself out of your comfort zone? Chances are it was scary at first, but overall a worthwhile experience you would be open to trying again. Embracing adrenaline in adventurous situations and living to tell the tale increases feelings of euphoria and can ultimately increase overall confidence. Having more confidence in yourself and your abilities can not only help you become more open to new experiences, but it also increases feelings of wellbeing and prevents future feelings of chronic, harmful stress. Instead, more room is made for feel-good adrenaline and constructive, motivating stress

World renowned Oribi Gorge

In this short article we take a look at how the world renowned Oribi Gorge was formed. This really is a must read for all nature lovers…

To learn more and get additional information on the breathtaking view sites, please come and speak to the insightful staff at Oribi Gorge Hotel.

Oribi Gorge is a canyon in southern KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, just west of Port Shepstone, which itself is 120 km south of Durban. Oribi Gorge, cut by the Mzimkulwana River, is the eastern gorge of two gorges that cut through the Oribi Flats (flat sugarcane farmlands) of KwaZulu-Natal. The western gorge was formed by the Mzimkulu River. The gorge is approximately 400 metres (1,300 ft) deep, and almost 5 kilometers (3.1 mi) wide at its widest.

Erosion by these rivers have carved out nearly 30 kilometers (19 mi) of spectacular Kloofs and crags, covered with subtropical vegetation. In the gorge, the dense forest on the sandstone slopes is home to various small mammals, while the large Leguaans excavate their burrows along the riverbanks.

At the base of the cliffs of both gorges the basement rocks are part of the Kaapvaal Craton, which are over 1000 million years old. The cliffs themselves are formed from sandstone deposited about 365 million years ago. Downstream from the gorges, a large surface mine producing cement from a limestone deposit. The road through Oribi Gorge was built by Italian prisoners of war.

Oribi Gorge derives its name from the Oribi, a small antelope that lives in the gorges.
