On the mountain

s-mountain

Last Saturday I met up with Sandra, a very special friend from South Africa. It was wonderful to see her again and it brought back happy memories of our last visit to Africa. Sandra and her husband, who live in the park, took us camping in the south-west of Kruger National Park.

Here we are looking for White Rhino. A couple of elephants were walking in the valley below us. Later when we left, they walked up the mountain. We actually used an elephant path to get up the mountain ourselves. It is quite amazing to see how steep these huge animals can climb.

This area is very mountainous and has the highest rainfall of the park. It is also famous for its rock art. Many of the art sites are located in rock shelters and some of the paintings could be as old as 30,000 years.

  1. Amazing blog you have here to share with us. I only saw about Africa through David Attenborough's Documentary films. And am glad there is someone real from there who can show us the real thing without going through photographic editing, thereby all we see are natural straight from your focal point. Lovely!
