the call of the caprivi

Visit the beautiful Berg! We recently visited Clarens, the Golden Gate Highlands National Park, Witsieshoek Mountain Lodge and Thendele camp in the Royal Natal National Park. I took this photo from our chalet in Thendele. The scenery and scale of the landscape took my breath away. I was impressed by the good condition of the roads. Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife also deserve a mention: The accommodation was great, and they gave us professional service. I felt so proud of our beautiful country.
