Durban – Kings House

Cape - Leuwenshof - Villa Zilla (28)I still hope to photograph King’s House in Morningside but it has the look and feel of Alcatraz, despite not being used too often. Pity our local ruling bosses don’t take a leaf out of Helen Zille’s book. She has opened up the gardens of her residence Leeuwenhof, in Cape Town every Saturday for the Oranjezicht market. I visited this on Saturday and it was great to see Joe Public enjoying the gardens, pool and tennis courts of this old Cape Heritage site. What a great and humble way of staying close to the public you serve, and allowing allowing those interested in the site to have access.
