Inside Royal AM's Durban social tour

Fame & Fortune

Following their KwaZulu-Natal derby match against AmaZulu on Sunday, the Royal AM stars were treated to a wonderful tour of Durban, which included a spa at the Elangeni Hotel. 

The story

Thwihli Thwahla has been the surprise package of this season's DStv Premiership campaign as they currently sit comfortably in second place on the table despite it being their debut season in the South African topflight.

With the side seemingly punching way above their weight, decision-makers at the club felt that the squad needed a break a bit of a break following their 0-0 draw with Usuthu at the Chatsworth Stadium.

Some much-needed body therapy

The team checked in at the Mangwanani African Spa, which is said to be Africa's largest private spa destination with over 22 branches nationwide. The players were treated to some massages.

There are various treatments at a spa, including detoxing in the sauna, unwinding in the treatment room, or the more common treatment of receiving a soothing foot and body massage - which we reckon the players appreciated having already played the bulk of the season. 

No surprises

In the typical fashion of their owner Shauwn Mkhize, the were cameras as a production team called Gela Productions was present to film the whole trip. 

The likes of Thabo Matlaba, Mzwandile Dlamini and Tebogo Potsane, among others seemed to be all in good spirits despite the gloomy weather in the region.
