Peter & Rayna Jackson come from the UK and they like to walk. So they gave me a comprehensive itinerary and asked whether we could walk it . . . and we did. The following photo-essay captures some of the highlights of the trip.
There was the time when we thought our walking party was going to grow
The most beautiful walk in the world brought out the romantic. No surprise when you are in such stunning surroundings:
Talk about dining “alfresco”
The weather was so lovely even the baboons took the day off and went to the beach!
Ascending the red cliffs was splendid
And we saw more wildlife – quite unconcerned by our proximity
Baboon Matters is a wonderful organisation that tries to minimise conflict between the human inhabitants and the baboons of The South Peninsula. We went on a walk with them to get a better understanding of baboons and their plight on the Peninsula. It was a very special experience to be totally accepted within the troop.
Then there was the epic ascent when the weather turned. Minutes after this photo was taken at the peak, the wisp of cloud in the background had escalated to thick mist and the wind had reached gale force!
And, of course, there are always penguins….
