Nature Unfolds

I wasn't able to "post" anything for a week because our land-line (telephone) was "cut" (= probably sabotaged) because the employees of the one-and-only telephone provider in our country are on strike. But ...... I'm back "on-line" so here are more photos (as promised) taken during the recent tour = an overview.

The last "intimate" encounter with the most northerly "reaches" of the Drakensberg

[For more on the Panorama Route SEE my blog-entry 19 April 2008 ]

Next stop: Kubu (= Hippo) Lodge in the Hoedspruit area, run & owned by a resourceful couple (= represented by the cute hippo-couple in their garden??)

A typical Lowveld sunset

On to the rolling hills of the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Game Reserve in Kwa-Zulu Natal, where watching nature unfold is "on par" with game spotting.

The petrified dunes at St. Lucia always form
an interesting backdrop = a paradise for photographers of landscapes.

[For more on this UNESCO World Heritage Site, SEE: my blog-entry 20 April 2008]

Sunrise over North Beach in Durban - as observed through a window of our hotel.

A view of Gansbaai from Grootbos - a haven in nature, with whale-watching "on the menu".

Getting "kitted" for the said whale-watching by boat.

More of what we encountered [Also SEE: previous blog-entry] will "be revealed" in the next "posting".

Last but not least - a glorious sunset over the bay as seen from Grootbos (with Hangklip in the background).
