Dr Jacqueline King • Rivers are the carriers of fresh water – earth’s most precious resource. Having dedicated her life to understanding the ecology of their flow, Dr Jacqueline King (75) was named 2019 Stockholm Water Prize Laureate, the first African scientist and fourth woman globally to receive this recognition.

First aid for snakebites

Last bud not least… • By all accounts, Cape winter rainfall was good this year (touch wood). One can only hope that a bright season of springtime blooms awaits us in its wake. If you’re going flower hunting this year, make a note of these spots and events along the way.

TERBODORE COFFEE ROASTERS, KZN MIDLANDS

MEET THE AUTHOR • There are lots of books about climate change. The contribution to the genre by journalists Sarah Wild and Sipho Kings is something a bit different. South Africa’s Survival Guide to Climate Change is a practical, insightful and hopeful book, which inspires action – something that is desperately needed right now. Sarah tells us more.

BOOKS & MUSIC • Two divergent books about climate change, a classic travel tome, and an album by a British folk legend to help you tap into bliss on the open road.

ROAD MUSIC

CLASSIC READ

Swim for bliss • If you love swimming like Elsabé Brits does, water is a refuge where you can forget the worries of the world for a while.

NIEUWOUDTVILLE IN BLOOM • A trip to see the spring flowers can quickly turn into a race from one destination to the next. This year, rather slow down and explore one area thoroughly, like Nieuwoudtville, which is the bulb capital of the world. Here’s what you need to know.

COME AND GET IT! • These days, Mountain Zebra National Park near Cradock offers way more than herds of striped horses. There are other animal attractions – lion, cheetah and buffalo – that keep the park’s beds full of tourists.

IN OTHER WORDS

PEOPLE OF THE NORTH • Meet the men and women of KZN’s North Coast, who are giving back to the tight-knit, hardworking communities that raised them.

Cindy Valayadam • Owner of Cindy’s Fresh Produce, Umhlali

Junior Gabela • Bird guide, KwaDukuza

Genevieve Chisholm • Flag Animal Farm, Sheffield Beach

Josh Falconer • Organic farming consultant, Tugela Mouth

Michy Morris • Snorkelling guide at Tidal Tao, Ballito
