Giant kingfishers.

A travel blog entry by timellis99


... drums that you hauled yourself across the river on by way of a rope pulley. Over on the other bank though the path was rubbish and I realised we'd landed at the wrong place, blindly following the canoeists ahead of us. We did this same trip 12 years ago, and I'd thought it didn't seem to be the right place, so we re-embarked and paddled further upriver. Finding the correct landing beach, where the river becomes too shallow to ...

Little waterfall and big tree.

... the "Brown Hooded Kingfisher Trail", a path up a wooded gorge to a waterfall. For the first part of the walk there were Louries everywhere. The first time we visited Wilderness we'd caught a fleeting glimpse of one of them in flight and had thought we'd been really lucky, but now I'm thinking we were unlucky to have seen only the one. They are really common in the right habitat. We had to say "Hello!" to about 50 elderly Afrikaaners coming back down the trail with ...

Living on the Edge

A travel blog entry by mmkuhl


... base of the waterfall was a small water basin that looked like it was straight out of the sixth Harry Potter movie. (Minus the dead bodies). Black, freezing cold water questioned our desire to jump in but after a little encouragement from our tour guide Mike, we knew we had come too far not to jump in. There were rocks right at the water’s edge so jumping in was not an option. I got to the edge of the pool and dipped my legs in—the water was colder than ...
