I am sad to be leaving South Africa in less than 24 hours. The journey has been like a wide awake dream. I’ll be back to explore more of the wonders found here hopefully next fall, winter and spring. Or spring, summer and winter depending how you look at the seasons.
Spotted Hyenas Kruger National Park
The wildlife so close and roaming free in its own environment while I stay in my cage called a car. Such an improvement from wandering a zoo and looking thru bars while my heart breaks over the containment of life for human enjoyment.
Golden Gate Highlands National Park
Landscapes of such diversity abound in this country no bigger than the state of Texas. And I’ve yet to see them all. Some places remind me of home in the States, similar but different. Towering walls of sandstone like the canyonlands in the Southwest.
High mountain streams cascading into waterfalls like the Rocky Mountains.
Mountains blanketed with forest like Washington’s North Cascades.
Rolling hills with farm fields stretching on to forever like Iowa.
Vaguely vegetated desserts like southern Arizona.
Tsitsikamma National Park
Waves crashing on rocky shores like the northwest coast.
West Coast National Park
Sand dunes to clamber over like the east coast.
Camdeboo National Park
And colorful sunsets like everywhere in the world.
Flap-necked Chameleon Kruger National Park
Yes, I am sad to leave but carry some most amazing memories away with me. Plus I long to sleep in my own bed.
I’ve seen so much and taken 1000s of photos. I will be sharing the journey with you all as I post for probably the next six months or more.
