Summary
Pathe synopsis: One of South Africa’s great tourist attractions is the aquarium at Durban. Here, a diver feeds by hand hundreds of fish ranging from delicate angels to devilish sharks. Once seen - never forgotten. That’s true of so much of South Africa. If you’re blue with cold, cheer at the sight of the Drakensberg region. But cheer quickly. For the sparkling sunshine, bubbling streams and a great panorama of proud mountains will take your breath away.
