look north… and east, west and south

There are times when readers see the world through the eyes of our writers, whether it’s a trip to the Bokkeveld Plateau around the flower town of Nieuwoudtville (p 34), or a visit to the Mountain Zebra National Park near Cradock (p 46). You’ll follow in our footsteps with the magazine as your guide, curious and excited to discover a place you might not have seen before. The flip side is equally true. We also enjoy seeing the world through your eyes, when you explore far-flung places like Patagonia, Turkey, Nepal, Portugal, Norway… Hardly a week goes by without us receiving an e-mail from a reader posing with a go! magazine and a big grin in a place thousands of kilometres from the southern tip of Africa. We realise again that…

behind the scenes

Do you know the area well? I grew up in Nelspruit, now Mbombela, and my husband and I moved back there after having lived in Makhanda (Grahamstown) for eight years. We live on a farm about an hour and a half outside Graskop, so I know most of the waterfalls in the area. Even so, Lisbon and Motitsi were new ones I could tick off the list. The vibe in Graskop is… It might appear to be a sleepy little town, but it’s always bustling with tourists and activity. Like many country towns, it also attracts its fair share of extrovert personalities and artists. The owner of Joe Bangles Leather Craft, Joe Risseeuw, always wears a sarong around his waist, and a moonbag. The legend in town is that he was…

It’s mine! The S90 south of Balule in the Kruger Park was just starting to feel monotonous when a jackal ran across the road. We pulled over and saw movement in a bush: a hyena, looking like it had recently fed. Out of nowhere, a big male leopard strode across the road and headed straight over to the bush – the hyena ran in the other direction. The leopard pulled a warthog carcass from the bush and the hyena reappeared. It wasn’t going to vanish quietly, even though it was smaller than the leopard. The two kicked up dust as they fought over the warthog. Despite its size advantage, the leopard seemed cautious, even scared. The hyena snatched the carcass from the leopard’s jaws and returned to the bush with it. The leopard, however,…

Battle of the birds Q NICK MATHIOS from Secunda writes: I came across this red-knobbed coot flapping its wings and being aggressive in the Marievale Bird Sanctuary. The next moment, an African purple swamphen popped up from under the water with the coot attacking and pecking at it. The coot was on top of the swamphen trying to drown it! I was surprised that the smaller coot had the upper hand. When I saw a second coot coming along to help its mate, I thought it was the end for the swamphen. Luckily the coot was distracted by something and the swamphen managed to escape. What on earth was going on? A Bird expert LUKAS NIEMAND says: There are a number of possible explanations for the coot’s behaviour. Coots are aggressive and…
