Day 14 - Gloomy Day in Drakensberg

A travel blog entry by simonannals


... 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 ...

... as I looked around at what we had achieved in a few hours, what the willing spirit and hard work of those around us, by coming together, united with the same goal, just exactly what we could achieve.

A travel blog entry by lisbeth24


... we were off to the Drakensberg mountains for the day! We set off at about half 7 in the morning and went to the Waffle Hut for breakfast just outside Winterton. Despite it being breakfast, Dela and I managed to have a 3 course meal... we shared a cooked breakfast, waffles with banana, bacon and maple syrup, and to finish off a very chocolatey waffle dessert!! I pretty much had to roll back into the car...! We were soon at Monk's Cowl, a part of the ...
