A BIT OF A TARADIDDLE (OQ)

Unread postby RosemaryH » Thu Mar 13, 2008 12:20 pm

Find the Place (PL), Animal Species (AS) or Plant Species (PS) in the Kruger by unravelling the clues which may be cryptic at times. Have fun!

Lets start with a fairly easy one and see how it goes!!

PL
The sugar line passes as I lie on the edge and bask in the sun
as oxpeckers floss. Not too far off hippo's frolick and play just for fun.
While a part of me is used to get to the other side so as to set up the covers and witness the game.

Here's another..

PLace

From the man's head journey along the original transport trail, the traders and gold miners knew so well, travelled by oxwagon so long ago.
The route is scenic and could take a while as plenty of game will slow you down. So if you feel tired and need a break, unsaddle a while, but watch your breakfast or it might dissapear with an elusive guest!
Journey from there to find me as I wait among stones to remind you of SPF's very best friend.

Brilliant, RosemaryH!

Just to add: by "sugar line" I think you meant the Selati Railway line, which crosses the river near CB, or else just the sugar cane? :?

You on the right road and closer than you think. You were there at one stage but at the wrong end. Either you haven't reached the spot or maybe you passed without noticing the stones???
You should have a Raven's eye view by now :D :P

Well, LadyRaven has got it, I think. :D

"Man's head" = Pretoriuskop
"original transport trail" = Voortreker Road
"unsaddle a while" = Afsaal
"remind you of SPF's very best friend" = Jock plaque
