KwaZulu Natal – Day 10

May 3rd 2018

This morning the whole gang did the walk to Doreen Falls, a gorgeous rainbow waterfall. Our guide had brought coffee for us all to have before our return hike.

Some folks did a demanding scramble up the mountain to see the Bushman art up there.. You can see how high they were!

Look very carefully to see the rest of the gang way up the mountain under the overhang where the Bushman art was to be found.

We spent the afternoon bird and bug watching.

KwaZulu Natal – Day 9

May 2nd 2018

We are in the Drakensburg Mountains, where my Dad was at some point in WW2. It feels a bit of a pilgrimage to be treading in his footsteps, seeing things he saw and he is in my thoughts as we take in all the grandeur.
We were up early to catch the Sunbirds collecting their nectar then after breakfast went on a walk to Belinda Falls, a pretty if a bit scrambly walk.

Later, after the gang had set off for their Grade 5, 5 hour walk up the mountains we went with the Leader’s wife to the Lake Jarred Overlook, another gentle and delightful walk spotting birds and flowers.
