a thirsty waterbuck
the sundowner program was brilliant.
we rode a jeep through the bush in search of animals. then we ended up at
one of the highest points at the camp enjoyed white wine and a beautiful
the end of this days program.
slightly buzzed by all the wine and ready for more at dinner :-)
South Africa is rich in minerals, and during the 1860s there was a goldrush
attracting many goldiggers. This is from one of the sites where people
bought claims and either dug for gold or washed dirt in the river in hope of
getting lucky (sounds corny.. i know).
one lucky guy found a gold nugget (about 3 kg), for that money he bought a
bar (the tent) where i made more money than he did on the nugget.
I guess diggers get thirsty after 16 hrs in the sun.
They also had another tent where some of the people who spent too much time
in the tent-bar ended, the prison.
showing us how to work the plate..
Pilgrim's rest, an old miner town, now a centre for african handmade stuff
we stopped and looked at a sight called God's window.
just about 1700m above the ground beneath (or so i remember it to be).
a breathtaking view.
