Patrick and Marie Gurney have reached Ethiopia:“We stopped at Guzara Palace which is seldom visited and partly ruined, but still impressive. We asked the site manager if we could camp right there. ‘No problem,’ he said, ‘but it’s not safe.’ We ended up paying R200 for two guards who arrived with AK47s. They chatted all night and we vowed to only ever hire one guard night in future…” KRUGER WILDERNESS TRAIL It’s exciting enough to crawl through the park in first gear looking for animals; imagine the thrill of walking through the bush… You could come face to face with a buffalo at any time. TRAVEL JOURNAL In the third part of the Gurneys’ journey through Africa, they take a turn through Ethiopia. GOUKAMMA NATURE RESERVE Everything you need to know about this slice of calm…

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of camping on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Pans in Botswana. If you’ve been there, you might know that the Makgadikgadi is the biggest collection of salt pans in the world – as big as a small country. Imagine the whole of Belgium or Lesotho as a giant, salty pancake… It was new moon and I decided to sleep outside my tent in a bivvy bag, under a blanket of stars that stretched from one end of the horizon to the other. I lay on my back, watching satellites reflecting the sun for a handful of seconds as they orbited the earth, meteorites burning up in the atmosphere, and the Milky Way patiently rotating above. The next morning I laced up my running shoes…

behind the scenes

How did you land up in Japan? I’m fascinated by how different people live, and I’ve always been interested in Japan’s unique culture and traditions. The easiest way to immerse yourself in a culture is to stay for an extended period of time, so I became an English teacher. What’s the vibe like in the lead-up to the Rugby World Cup? The Springboks are coming to Kagoshima City for their training camp – there are lots of posters of them up around town. There have also been events in the city to introduce South African culture to the locals. I helped out at one such event: People drank South African wine and ate malva pudding and samoosas. They also showed Invictus – Clint Eastwood’s film about the 1995 Rugby World Cup in…

3, 2, 1 bungeeee! This must be a first for your magazine? I worked as a guide for a Canadian tour company called G-Adventures for a while, and we toured between Cape Town and Livingstone, Zambia, for weeks on end. In 2010, my brother Mouton joined me for a few weeks. At Vic Falls, we taped a Weg magazine to his back before we did the 111 m bungee jump off the bridge. RUDOLF BADENHORST, Lilongwe Thanks, Rudolf. This is definitely a first! – Ed. A good start to the day We stayed at T’Niqua Stable Inn ( tniqua.co.za) in Plettenberg Bay. These rainbows appeared at about 8 am. It had rained throughout the night and the morning was fresh and beautiful. You forget all about the hustle and bustle of the city once you’ve unpacked your…

Something blue Q JOAN SHINN from Port Elizabeth writes: I photographed these lizards on Marine Drive in PE. Can you help me identify them? A Reptile expert JOHAN MARAIS says: These are ground agamas, common in rocky terrain and often seen on rocks along the beach. Like the tree agama, the head of the male turns bright blue during breeding season. They mostly eat ants and termites, as well as other insects. Legless what? Q ETIENNE DU TOIT from Centurion writes: My friend found this snake on the grounds of Mariepskop Primary School. What is it? A Reptile expert JOHAN MARAIS says: This is not a snake – it’s a giant legless skink, which is harmless. Snakes and skinks differ greatly, especially when it comes to the bones in their heads. The skink has ear holes…
