Height- Ailsa’s Weekly Travel Theme

Earlier in the year I blogged about our Bike Trip with the South African Bible Society. One of the beautiful places in South Africa is at Blyderivierspoort in Mpumalanga. These hills are called the Three Rondavels (A Rondavel is a round hut with a pointy thatch roof, as seen in Southern Africa…)

It was just marvelous to watch the sunrise lighting up the scene, and this photo doesn’t even begin to capture the magnificence of this place:

    Personal I have never been up this high. Great entry.

    • On the other side of the 3 Rondavels is Mariepskop, and from there, “they” say, you could see the lights of Maputo, Mozambique’s capital… It is beautiful, with the Kruger National park also nearby…
