Having trawled the Internet for something that would break the boredom and monotony of the day, I by chance came upon Zulumoon Gondolas. I had seen the canal and the gondolas when visiting Ushaka but for some reason my mind never put two and two together. After some further investigation, and complete indecisiveness on my part, I sent the Zulumoon team an email. The dilemma? There was so much to choose from! All was catered for! Young and old, the sweets in a bottle next on my to do list as I can only imagine my son’s excitement. However, having decided that I would treat hubby to an outing (about the only decision I was capable of making) I asked the dream team (so they shall be named as they were very accommodating, even being so kind as to find out sunset times) for their recommendations but inevitably the decision had to be made and I eventually settled on the romantic picnic ride after much deliberations. The day was upon us! Or shall I say eve. We made our way down to the docks to be welcomed by Bongani our gondoliers and fine photographer if the snaps he took of us on my cellular contraption are anything to go by. Bongani was not only a fine photographer but seemed to know when the moment called for silence and as we made our way down the canal in a gondola (which I learnt from our dear friend Bongani, was made by the proprietors) we had the honour of witnessing one of the most spectacular sunsets. After basking in the last rays of the sun, we dug into the picnic with a fervour. We were fed! On love, on the experience and yes, the great picnic, and our souls were happy. Alas dream team, you shall have to deal with me again shortly! I intend to try out every single ride! Starting with message in a bottle. Oh wait, no, sweets in a bottle. I remember making mention that I would treat my son next. Thank you so much for sharing your gondolas with us and for the incredible experience!
