Frontier Country Attraction - Eastern Cape

Barkly East
We took some photos of the area between Barkley East and Rhodes. There are various mountains and streams along the way. This is not a road for those in a hurry. Take your time to enjoy the scenery. A spectacular road to drive. This area and getting closer to Rhodes gets snow often during the winter months. We went to work at the top of Naudesnek pass on 2 January 2006 and the vehicle showed it was 6 degrees celsius. No wonder Tiffindell ski resort is nearby. Area between Barkley East and Rhodes

Karas Attraction - Namibia

Aussenkehr
The photos were taken during a long drought in the region. As can be seen there is basically nothing growing on the mountains. In contrast with that there is lush green vineyards. The last photo shows the seasonal houses of Aussenkehr. Thousands of workers comes every year to harvest the grapes. There is more and more permanent workers as the operation is busy expanding. The farm Aussenkehr has expanded a lot and can almost be seen as a town. They have a Spar and some other shops which is a real treat in this area. We were here in 2011, and the progress can be clearly seen. Seasonal houses of Aussenkehr

Aussenkehr
The first photo of the mountain looks like someone threw some white powder onto the mountain. These photos of the vineyards at Aussenkehr is a beautiful sight if you are driving from the dry surroundings. These vineyards are possible due to the water from the Orange river which runs through the area. Here you realize how water brings life. Vineyards at Aussenkehr

Zululand Attraction - Kwazulu-Natal

Kosi Bay
And we will return in steaming February to witness the energetic frenzy of hatchlings scurrying to the ocean to begin their journey to adulthood. The eggs can take up to 70 days to hatch, with the hatchlings emerging at night and making their way to the sea from January through to March every year. Approximately 4 hatchlings from every 1000 are estimated to reach maturity. Most move by night, but many give in to the urgency and bolt to the ocean by day. Recent evidence suggests that female turtles return to the beaches where they hatched. How they know the route back to the spots... Hatching Of Turtles in Kosi Bay

Ngamiland Attraction - Botswana

Maun
Photos from air at the Botswana delta. A lot of animals can be seen from the air. The water from the Okavango delta comes in from Angola. The delta has no outlet so the water just drains away into the ground. As far as I understand they don't know to where all the water goes. The lines which can be seen on the photos was caused by hippos which walked in and out of the water for many years. The delta is also filled with many crocodiles which can be found everywhere. We recommend you fly over the okavango delta as it gives you a whole new perspective of the area. Fly over the okavango delta

Kunene Attraction - Namibia

Okongwati
The Marienfluss valley is a sea of grass. The whole valley is full of sand blown in from the kalahari many centuries ago. The valley is surrounded by black rock cliffs, with a flat bed of red sand in the middle. The grass fills every part of the Marienfluss, except for the road and some fairy circles. Nobody knows why nothing grows in these fairy circles. Be sure not to stop with a hot exhaust in some grass. On the way a wreck of a car is right next to the road. Probably someone that didn't know that doing this can cause a fire. The road was made like a highway, with two tracks. Keep on... Marienfluss valley

Kunene Attraction - Namibia

Opuwo
Driving down the pass we had to plan the route ahead as we had three 4x4's and two 2x4's. This road was rough with big boulders in, as any good 4x4 road should be. At one spot there was a deep hole in the road over which we had to drive. This could easily be used if we needed to work below one of the vehicles. This is the easier alternative to the Van Zyl's pass. It still has a lot of loose rocks. We were driving downhill from east to west, but driving uphill a 4x4 is probably a must.

Kunene Attraction - Namibia

Orupembe
The red drum, also know as "Die rooi drom" is a land marker placed so that people know where they are. This was done way before the days of GPS. If you reach the red drum, you know at which split in the road you are. If you haven't yet been to the red drum, you haven't been nowhere. The journey to the drum, is much better than the destination. Roads leading here are man made and driven out by 4x4. The Van Zyl's pass is also relatively nearby to the north, about 30km.

Oshikoto Attraction - Namibia

Omuthiya
On our way out of Etosha we stopped at this natural fountain with lukewarm water. The water is brackish which can be seen from the salts accumulating on the soil around the water. This water is trapped underground under pressure and is pushed out in a fountain. The fountain works non stop day and night, year in and out. No pump needed. We could take a nice lukewarm shower to get the dust of the day off. On our way northwest we saw some more of these, though they had pipes connected to take the water away.

Oshana Attraction - Namibia

Outjo
The Okaukuejo water hole is something spectacular to see. These photos were taken on our way through. Previously we stayed there and it is something to see at night. Animals come to the Okaukuejo water hole at night as it is the only water in a big area. So you just sit there and watch all kinds wild animals come to drink some water. And take lots of photos of course. When the predators arrive, the other animals gives them enough space to drink. We also saw how elephants don't wait for other animals. They simply push them out of the way when the arrive. I know there is much better... Okaukuejo water hole

Erongo Attraction - Namibia

Swakopmund
This is some photos near moon valley. The farm on which the photos was taken have lots of underground water, from the dry Swakop river. They plant vegetables here which is very interesting to see, as they are very close to the moon valley where virtually nothing is growing. The soil contains a lot of silica, and the water is not really fit for humans. This farm / plot was used as a police station long ago. It was sold to the family and is a piece of private land inside the Namib-Naukluft National Park. We slept here for 2 days. The first photo is net to the road in. On the second...

We took some sundown photos of the area and the mountains as the sun was starting to go down. The colours of the area is more pronounced and brighter while the sun goes down.

Hardap Attraction - Namibia

Sesriem
We took these photos of the mountains and sand from the C27 road. As always there is a wide variety of colours that can be seen in the photo. The lonely springbok was standing on the road and in no hurry to get anywhere. Probably to conserve energy and moisture. We started to begin seeing some more plant growth from here on south. It might not look like it to you, but check the photos to the north from this to see what I mean. It was still extremely dry. C27 mountain photos

Hardap Attraction - Namibia

Sesriem
We took some photos of the mountains next to the road. It is interesting to see all the different colours. There is lots of different colours, the sky, sand and rocks. This is on the C27 road south of Sossusvlei and Sesriem. As far as I remember we did not see any animals for a very long distance around where this photos were taken, due to the long drought. We recommend driving from North to South. That way the sun is mostly from your back and cooler. Also the views is much better, as you will see a lot of shades and less colours driving North. The sun will also be in your eyes more if... Mountain photos from the C27 road

An oasis in the desert near the C14 road. It is at the bottom of the Gaub-pass. Although it isn't a strong stream of water flowing out of the fountain, it is nice to find such a green spot in this dry part. The farmer have first build a smaller dam, and then later a bigger dam to catch the water of the fountain. Fountain on the farm Oase

Some photos of the moon landscape in the Namib desert. As can be seen there is virtually no plant growth due to almost no rainfall. This area normally looks like this, therefore it is called the moon landscape. At the time the photo was taken, there have also been a drought for the past few years.
