Heuningvlei revisited

I've been extremely fortunate to have had an adventurous few months, traveling to special places. As you noticed in my previous blog, I was recently fortunate enough to be guiding in the Okavango Delta (my favourite place in the world). Next purchase viagra online ukweek I'll be in The Greater Kruger National Park and along the way I have been in The Cederberg, Francistown and The Succulent Karoo as well as up and down Table Mountain a few times. As the author of this blogspot I...

Monster flood in the Okavango

Many visitors to The Okavango Delta struggle with the apparent paradox of an annual flood in the dry season followed by receding waters in the rainy season. The reason for this apparent paradox is that the waters which contribute to the flood origviagra canadainate in the Angolan highlands and it takes several months for the waters from this rainfall to make its way into The Okavamgo River and percolate through the Okavango Delta. This year the flood level is at a record high. I have just returned from the...

Refreshingly outdated airport

It is safari season and so I must leave Table Mountain walks for a while and continue my adventuring further north for a short while. I am en route to The Okavango Delta in Botswana and yesterday evening I landed at Francistown international viagra 100mgairport. I flew from Cape Town airport via Oliver Tambo airport in Johannesburg to Francistown. These South African airports have recently been renovated and modernised and now compete in image and content with the largest shopping centres in the world. To me it...

A lion in Cape Town

Although it is difficult to imagine today, there were once lions in what is now Cape Town. In fact the first representative of the EastIndia Company - Jan van Riebeck noted in his journal in 1659 that the remains of one of his soldiers had been digeneric viagra indiascovered not far from the fort. Most likely this poor soul had been eaten by either a lion or hyena. Today, Capetonians refer to the hill on the western side of the city as "the lion" because it resembles a recumbent lion,...

Table Mountain Ice

The Laveroni clan has toured with me before in Cape Town. Last time they were here, the weather prevented them from going to Robben Island and from ascending Table Mountain. This time the weather was PERFECT - one of those incomparable Cape Town winter champagne days! So while Jerry & Ty went to Robben Island I took Sherry, Shelly, Maddie & Gracie for a walk on the mountain. Here we all are at Maclear's Beacon.   It was a magnificent day and although the temperature was ideal, we could see from the...

Of dogs, dolphins, docks, dazzling beauty and dyes

If you've been following the eternal sunshine of my random mind, you will recall a character who featured in one of my recent posts. His name is Ovid Jacota and he enjoys walking and he loves animals - especially dogs. I think that he trusts them viagra salebetter than he trusts humans - which is wise. Anyway he went walking with Kili & Meru, and we tagged along. We were extra privileged to see this enormous school of Dolphins swimming in the ocean below. They weren't very close nor very...

History has never been this easy

If you live in Cape Town, when last did you visit the Castle?  I’ve never been to the Castle; a shocking admission for someone who has lived here for 19 years.  Equally shocking is the pathetic amount of walking I do, for someone who works foviagra costr a company called Walk In Africa.  On Friday, though, I did both.  I was finally chased out from behind my desk to do the two-hour city walk “Sex and Slaves in the City – the Theatre Tour”.  My idea of...

Table Mountain and Cederberg Walks

I'm currently travelling and walking in the gorgeous Cederberg Range. I still have news and photographs of my last Table Mountain Walk to share as well as stories and images from the Klein Karoo, my walk to Heuningvlei and Krakadouw Pass and the exgeneric viagraquisite Bushman's Kloof Retreat. Unfortunately internet access out here is extremely limited and when available, upload speeds are glacially slow. I am therefore forced to delay publication of the images I have collected over the past weeks. So please be patient while I gather...

The Lost City of Cape Town

On a recent Table Mountain walk we looked down to where we expected to see the city but it was immersed in fog, with only the notorious towers visible. It was indeed the lost city of Cape Town. Whereas the mythical lost city of Atlantis was supposcialis onlineedly a marvel of architectural triumph, what architecture was visible of the lost city of Cape Town could hardly be described as "marvelous" nor as an architectural triumph. None the less being above the fog provided a unique and special view. When we...
