The Sani Pass is the only route passable for motorvehicles that connects the east of Lesotho to Kwazulu-Natal in South Africa. The beginning of the Sani Pass road stands at 1544 meters, and at the top the height is 2876. Especially the final kilometers of the Pass are steep and tricky to drive – which is why only 4×4 vehicles are allowed on the road. In winter, parts of the road are always in the shadow, and streams of water turn into ice. A real adventurous journey!
Boulders and rugged rock formations in the Drakensberg Mountains. This must be the entrance into a fairy land!
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 little bay along the St. Blaize’s trail near Mossel Bay. Such beautiful scenery!
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…
Another amazing hike on the Gardenroute is St. Blaise’s trail in Mossel Bay. A narrow path leads over the rocks, giving beautiful views over the ocean below.
“Pursue some path, however narrow and crooked, in which you can walk with love and reverence”
