Brokers under attack!

Direct insurers are now turning green, purple and pink with envy at the high level of competent and FAIS accredited staff employed in the Broking environment and are actively canvassing staff from this source.

Direct insurers are now poaching staff from the very industry which they actively encourage the insuring public to ignore

Where in the world is Raymond : Meat pies, moerkoffie and mafiosi

The Transgariep, unspoiled, sparsely populated and still very much unpolluted, is a vast expanse of semi-desert wilderness, situated in the southern tip of the Free State. Here you can expect to find little more than sparse egetation of coarse grass, stunted shrubs and karoobossies. Or so you may think.

Where in the world is Raymond : Ford's don't float

Magical sunrises at 4 in the morning over palm-fringed beaches with sand so clean that it squeaks when you walk over it. Warm, azure-coloured Indian Ocean water so clear you can see the fish swimming in the waves as they rush to break on the shore. Anticipation builds as you wait for the day to unfold. Jet-skiing, scuba diving, deep sea fishing, power kiting or maybe just soaking up the sun. And later in the evening, around the beach bar, you may just convince yourself to participate in the seafood buffet with crayfish so huge you would think that they are "made in China". Who cares what you do anyway. You are in Mozambique!

Where in the world is Raymond : Musso mining in moremi

Some time back, while travelling through Moremi in Botswana, I came your wheels to stop turning, or worse, apply brakes, you are almost upon a scene which had me looking around for movie cameras. I was guaranteed to sink, as the earth sucks onto your 4X4. I was screwed. convinced we had stumbled upon a movie set, and that any minute crowds of extras and catering staff would appear out of the wilderness. I had no option but to roll to a gentle halt. I was intrigued though. What No location scout in the world could have found a better spot to shoot wonder of nature could possible be unfolding that would have enticed the comedy of errors that was about to unfold.

TUFFSTUFF Torque - Santawani

I have been extremely privileged over the past number of years to be able to experience Africa in a way that I believe many of you dream of, but cannot find the time to do so. Without a doubt, we live on a continent which is so rich in natural heritage and which is so easy to explore yet we choose to seek excitement in far away "exotic" places. Don't get me wrong, each of us have our own desires to explore different countries abroad, but what is right here on our doorstep is put on the shelf for possible later use. Regrettably, at the rate which true wilderness areas are disappearing, later may very well be too late.

TUFF Enough?

SUVs these days are deceptively easy to drive. Join the queue outside any pleasure of reaching wonderfully scenic places that their sedan-bound private school on a weekday morning and count the number of soccer counterparts only read about in magazines. But it's tough in Africa. And moms driving SUVs. They're big. (The SUVs,not the moms.)
