Where I stayed
Mbotyi is rural Trankei. Beatiful coast line. An estuary situated between two rivers.
Not much in the sense of development here. But picturesque and friendly people.
The camp has all we need. Water, electricity, good and clean ablutions and next to the estuary.
We took the coastal road. Not as bad as it is made to be. You could do it on a sedan (Ok. Not during the rainy season). In fact there are a few around. Most of it are taxis though.
One of the interesting things is the amount of cattle on the beach. For some reason that i don't know, you see herds of them sunbathing or just walking along. There is nothing to eat. All I can think is that somehow they like to drink the water at the river mouth. (Some salinity issue or??).
Anita was most impressed by seen a goat about to give birth. And then coming back, there was the new born. She even has a photo of it.
