... and this is a sunrise the following day at Marakele.

Just as the sun was about to rise, the sky turned an amazing pink.

Hi Picnic

The picture was taken early morning at the Tlopi Tented Camp at Marakele National Park. It is situated next to a dam. It is very beautiful there, and the view from on top off the mountain is amazing.

The road to the top of the mountain is however, not for the faint hearted... :pray: :pray: :pray:
