Travelling past MZNP are many private reserves. It was therefore not surprising to read about the proposed corridor.

We came across these strange buck, first timers, stopped, reversed, camera out and...they get up and move off!!! :wall: :evil: :wall:

Lechwes I believe...or that's what I told SO they were...

After some food in civilisation we headed out to the 'Valley of Desolation'.

I had visited Graaff-Reinet on my 16th birthday many, many years ago. It was a boy scout get together camping and hiking in the surrounding mountains. I was allowed to open my birthday present from my mother...a bird book. We still use it today!

And so I had to show SO the sights that we were shown then.

After the gate, on the mountain side of the dam, we saw what looks like an Eland.
