Drakensberg

We spent a long weekend with Darryl and Carol near Underberg in the Southern Drakensberg. One afternoon, from our site at the campsite, we saw a rainstorm in the distance.

The nearby dam looked glorious in the early morning autumn sun.

Darryl had never driven up the Sani Pass (last year they intended to do so but there was snow in the Pass so they didn't get very far). As we've driven up it a couple of times we were happy to join them in his Fortuner.

Crossing a small stream on the way up.

Negotiating the zig-zags.

It was a lovely day and we had wonderful views back down the Pass.

Locals wrapped up warmly against the cold wind at the top.


We had a drink at the Sani Top Hotel.
