Day 14 - Gloomy Day in Drakensberg

... dramatic landscapes. I would agree with all of the above, except popular, we hardly saw a sole much to Jackie's consternation. If she can't see another white face, not counting albinos, she thinks we are going to get mugged. Particularly when we drive through villages with kids all walking along the side of the road, waving! With the drizzle and cloud and stunning scenery, it felt like we were in the Scottish Highlands. After paying our 30 rand entrance fee, the gate ...

This afternoon was pretty lazy after a surprisingly difficult walk back to the reserve, where I was on constant look out for ticks haha, we did some Zebra using my photos from yesterday and others from camera traps. Very weird ...
