Waves for Change helps disadvantaged, vulnerable youngsters by teaching them how to swim and surf.
Daily exposure to violence and stress means many South Africans children suffer from acute emotional and psychological stress. In the absence of emotional support, the stress often manifests in anti-social and high-risk behaviour, placing many young South Africans at-risk.
Early surfing sessions showed that participants noted improved feelings of belonging, strength, trust and confidence – key pillars of wellbeing. This was reflected in their behaviour as noted by teachers and parents.

Kevin Richardson – The Lion Whisperer
The Kevin Richardson Wildlife Sanctuary’s mission is to provide a self-sustaining African carnivore sanctuary for the purposes of wild species preservation.
Through education, outreach and funding, our mission is to bring awareness to the rapid decline of large carnivores in Africa due to habitat loss, human-predator conflict, the illegal bush meat trade, unscrupulous hunting, disease, and illegal trade.
We are hoping to arrange a visit for those watching in Johannesburg.

Destination South Africa
Cricket at the Sahara Newlands Stadium in Cape Town
If there was ever a beauty pageant for international cricket grounds, Newlands would go home with the scepter and tiara. Here in the shadow of cloud-caped Table Mountain and Devil’s Peak you’ll find a ground that’s as pretty as a picture. Newlands was expanded to hold more than 25,000 spectators for the Cricket World Cup in 2003. So now you’ll find elegant stands nestling next to open grassy areas to create a really appealing backdrop for world-class cricket. The Sahara Newlands is a particularly happy hunting ground for South Africa in one-day internationals. The home team has notched up an impressive 25-4 record since being led to victory over India by Hansie Cronje in 1992. So don’t be fooled by the glamorous surroundings, England could be set for an ugly scrap in Fortress Newlands.
See the world’s best cricketers in Cape Town. Support the England team against South Africa at the Sahara Newlands Ground.
Cricket at the Sahara Stadium Kingsmead in Durban
Perched on the edge of the Indian Ocean the Sahara Stadium in Durban is bathed in light and awash with history. They say time and tide wait for no man but this Durban cricket ground has tested that theory over the years. It witnessed the longest ever test match between South Africa and England – ten days – in 1939. They only upped stumps in the ‘Timeless Test’ because England seemed destined to miss the boat home! There’s also a widely-held belief that the changing of the tides affects the swing of the ball at Kingsmead. The ground was upgraded to become a magnificent 25,000-seater stadium for the 2003 Cricket World Cup. Here in the home of the Sunfoil Dolphins England face another voyage into the unexpected against the masters of the ODI.
Time you tour to perfection. Sign up to be England’s twelfth man against South Africa at the Sahara Stadium in Durban.
Cricket at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg
Prepare to step in to the Bullring. Intimidating and awe-inspiring, the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg is South Africa’s premier cricket ground. It hosted the 2003 World Cup Cricket final and has been the prime location for South Africa’s biggest cricket contests ever since. They can pack 34,000 into this sporting cauldron – from the boisterous cheap seats to the corporate suites brimming with champagne high above the crease. This stadium has witnessed some impressive run-making feats and legendary One-day international matches. One of South Africa’s finest moments came in 2006 when they chased down Australia’s world record score of 434. A day at the Bullring promises to serve up a gladiatorial battle between two-evenly matched teams.
Brave the Bullring! England needs you for the battle against the Proteas at the Bidvest Stadium in Johannesburg.
Cricket at the Sahara Oval, St George’s Park in Port Elizabeth
Strike up the band, the tourists are coming to town! If you think the Barmy Army can belt out a tune just wait for your brassy Port Elizabeth welcome. This ground has been in tune with many a memorable moment, witnessing a variety of cricketing history. It was the venue for South Africa’s first ever international test as well as the last and first matches bookending the country’s Apartheid exclusion. It was also the scene of (alleged) cricketing controversy when minnows Kenya thrashed mighty India by 70 runs in 2001. Totally revamped in 2003 for the World Cup, you’ll now find towering stands next to grassy embankments. It hosted the semi-finals during that contest and high-profile games including England versus Australia. Now South Africa await, backed by a chorus of vocal supporters.
Sing out for England! Make a note to be in Port Elizabeth for the clash against South Africa at the Sahara St George’s Park Oval.
