We also took lots of photos of animals, which we deliberately did not publish at the time, due to the high risk of poaching. Poachers can often geotrack animal locations from the information in photos. So here they are now!
You may know that Chris and I have sold everything and are permanent travellers. We are mixing in working as volunteers on various conservation projects, with travelling and staying in interesting places, and living as much as possible with the locals. We’ve just spent Christmas in England with family, after a wonderful three months in South Africa, and we’re off again in a couple of days’ time!
We’ll be taking a one-way cruise from Southampton to Fort Lauderdale, on the beautiful Cunard ship Queen Elizabeth.
Kirstenbosch Gardens in Cape Town, South Africa, is one of the most beautiful botanical gardens I’ve ever been to. I could spend days there, I could live there! Here’s a little photo essay, hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Pounding posts into the ground, slashing grasses with a panga, so the waving grass doesn’t trigger
the camera, and waste pictures. Watching giraffes watching us, as we drive by. Gazing at lovely kudu with the huge ears, laughing at impala, as they jump around and scamper off, not knowing which way to run.
