Snapshot: Wildebeest on a Game Farm in the Drakensburg

15 February 2013


A herd of wildebeest with two month old calves on the Tillietudlem Game Farm, where I’m CouchSurfing with Gareth and Kirsten who are managing this beautiful 2,000 hectare property. It’s set in the foothills of the Drakensburg mountains and the weather is constantly changing; an impressive lightning and thunderstorm is moving its way through the valley now.

Regarding my exit from South Africa, I’ve just found out that Indian immigration laws do not allow any passengers to disembark from cargo ships 🙁 meaning that going by sea across the Indian Ocean isn’t an option anymore. Boo. I was really looking forward to that sea voyage. Oh well, air freight for sanDRina and a plane ticket for me coming up. But athere’s still the Drakensburg to cross and a ride down the Garden Route and Rt 62 on my way to Cape Town…
