We are visiting the penguins at Betty’s Bay this morning.
Walking among the sea bamboo,
swimming in the waves,
looking out at the point,
When you are done enjoying them, stop on the Rooiels Road at the local cafe for something to drink and look through their books.
Don’t be mistaken, the Rooiels Road may the the most beautiful drive in the world.
Walvis Bay, a growing harbour city on the Namibian coast. Complete with a lagoon, for the flamingos.
A few photos
They mine salt there as well
Fill my screen with blue, and just a few dunes in the background, – longing for Namibia.
Little Somiso is a Rhino calf who lives in Swaziland. His mom didn’t have any milk for him because of the drought.
He is a month old and growing quite big already.
Fortunately he found people to take care of him.
During the day he has two mom’s taking care of him and seeing that he gets to all the mud pools.
Late afternoon, he comes home to be washed down and fed before coming inside for the night.
At the moment he sleeps with me (or I with him 🙂 ) from 9 to 3. Well I watch movies till 12 and then we try to sleep after the midnight feeding.
Internet is not great here, this is the first chance I get to post something about him.
He is snoring away here beside me..
They say you can see the Okavango Delta from space, but for those who can’t afford it, there are alternatives.
It was hot in the back of that little Cesna so the photos are a bit scarce, but if you look closely you may spot game..
In the north west of Botswana, west of the panhandle is the town Shakawe.
If you follow that road you reach the Namibian border and enter the Mahangu reserve in the Caprivi, east of Rundu.
You can camp on the banks of the river and listen to the hippos splashing in the water a few meters from your pillow..
Very little on earth beats sitting next to your fire in the quiet of the African night..
Late afternoon on the way to Citrusdal from the Stadsaal caves,
If you turn off towards from Serowe and take that road to Maun you pass Mopipi. There is a filling station and this view on Lake Xau.
From the bridge across the Boteti river, on the way to Maun.
A cat moved in at my little chalet in Hazyview this week. Black and white, tame as anything, loves freshly baked bread..
