    ... were very
    nice and easy to cross. We eventually arrive at the town of
    Barberton, an old gold-mining town. The town was started in 1884 when
    gold was discovered here. It only flourished for a short time until
    gold was discovered in Witwatersrand and only the larger mines stayed

One took us along a long sandy beach where we wondered at the behaviour ...

This region is part of a great system of mountains called the uKahlamba-Drakensberg Park. We are in the northernmost bit called Royal Natal National Park.

    ... on. Next we drove on at a decent pace until we came upon a large group of vehicles parked across the road. The must be something good! We pulled up behind, to see a pride of lions walking walking along towards us. There were in excess of 10 of them and they got within 10 feet of our car.
