Autumn Safari

It has been a while since I last posted something, and I cannot believe how long ago that was!  Nevertheless I did think about my blog often and now at last have settled down to continue.  
Chris and I love going into the bush, and traditionally we visit the Limpopo Farm of our friends every year during the quiet months.  This year was earlier than usual, so the weather was still warm in the Lowveld and the autumn colours had just started coming in.
We had decided to use this opportunity to drive up to the farm that is in the northwestern corner of South Africa and then continue our journey from there. We took the road to Kimberley that we had not used for quite a number of years and stopped just outside the town famous for it's huge hole created by the diamond rush of last century.  When we left the town we saw two dams on either side of the road with one of those absolutely pink from hundreds, maybe even thousands of flamingos.  It was still cold, so most of them were stationery, but some started moving through like a column of soldiers, and some even started flying.  It was an amazing sight and a fantastic start to the day!


  1. Loved all the pictures you took but I would say that the snake picture was awful for me as I don't like snakes much. Well thanks for sharing the experience you had there,
