Leokwe looks a lovely place to be surrounded by those rocks. :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

Baobabs are fantastic trees. Wonder how old they are. :hmz:

Am always amazed that trees remain standing in such a precarious position.

Brill :cam: of everything.

Thank you. :gflower:

The rock figs in Mapungubwe are really quite remarkable. Lovely :cam:

I am really getting such a feeling of nostalgia looking at your pictures of Leokwe. It is difficult to describe the atmosphere of the camp...

too much to do, so little time.

:popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn:
