Good Day Adventurers
I would just like to take this opportunity to say thank-you for visiting my website.
My name is Rory Taylor and I was born in Johannesburg South Africa to Tommy and Nancy Taylor. My parents are of Scottish descent and originally only came out to South Africa on a 5-year plan and never left.
At the tender age of 7 years old my parents moved to KwaZulu-Natal where I was schooled. I grew up playing in the Kloof Gorge, Kayaking in the Umgeni river, Hiking in the Drakensberg and Fly-Fishing in the Natal Midlands. This is where the “Love for the Great Outdoors” and the “Adventurous Spirit” was born!
After my schooling I enrolled in the South African Navy for a year of National Service where I was deployed on the Strike Craft. Here, I learnt a great deal about the Ocean and developed a passion for the sea.
I did my tertiary education in Durban KwaZulu-Natal where I played Rugby for Natal Technikon and had the privilege of watching all the 1995 World Cup Rugby games that where hosted at Kings Park. Whilst watching these games many friendships were formed.
Out of these friendships I was asked in 1997 to lead a group of twelve avid Lions Supports on a three-week expedition around South Africa to show off our beautiful land. We watched the 1st Test Match at Newlands in Cape Town and drove up to Durban via the Garden Route and Grahamstown. We then watched the 2nd Test Match at Kings Park before heading off to Kruger National Park for a bit of sightseeing. We left the game reserve and headed to Sun City for two days before watching the 3rd and final Test match in Ellis Park.
One month after this tour I headed overseas (as many South Africans did) to see the world. My highlights of travelling the world for 3 years was I got do build a 50ft ocean rowing boat called “Atlantic Endeavour” and as part of the crew we attempted to row her across the Atlantic. I also be part of the crew that sailed a 76ft Gaff Ketch called “Veelhi” back across the Atlantic from Antigua through the Azores to Gibraltar. I spent a long time in Bonnie Scotland from Dufftown to Glasgow. I played rugby for London Scottish, Murrayfield Wanderers in Edinburgh and Gordonians in Aberdeen.
I returned to South Africa and whilst living in Johannesburg I met my beautiful wife Marietjie. We moved to Cape Town in 2012 and we have 2 gorgeous children.
I would love to Taylor make an Adventure for you to see the wonderful sites of the Western Cape.
