Dawn at the waterhole

Winter is coming, they say. In Pilanesberg the mornings are becoming chilly, with mist that forms over bodies of water like this waterhole. The Egyptian geese are just waking up and arranging their feathers. It’s going to be a lovely day!

A cloudy day in the hills

It was one of those days in which the sky growls and then goes quiet again, only to find its voice again later on. Thunderstorms and downpours alternated with blue skies and sunshine. We went out for an evening stroll and I managed to get this photograph before the biting insects had completely sucked me dry…

Ocean view

Hiking the Waterfall trail at Storms River Mouth Rest Camp – which is also the beginning of the Otter trail. After a particularly challenging scramble over the rocks on the beach we took the opportunity to rest in the shade of a large cave. What a spectacular view on the ocean shore!

Jagged beach

The beautifully jagged rock formations at the coast near Storms River Mouth. The lichen on the rocks make them extraordinarily colorful, especially in combination with the blue water in the tidal pools. The first leg of the famous Otter Trail passes this stretch of coastline.
