We stayed in a mountain hut for Easter weekend....and enjoyed the bird songs and sound of the waterfall and passing stream. It really feels like a "brake away" from modern life.

We missed out on the cheetah tracking because there was no guide available on Sunday morning and that was our only time to do it...but there will be a next time.

J.J. what splendid and atmospheric pictures :D

:clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Mount Zebra came as a complete surprise for me. I could not get over it's soul, the sense of something mystical. Your pictures, particularly the landscape and hut picture, have captured that sense of soul.

Staying at the hut for 2 nights in December. Love MZ NP - one of my favourites. We're bringing a toddler with us, so sure to have our hands full:)
