A young hunter with his hunting pack. He proudly showed us the cane rat and rock rabbit he was taking home for dinner.
Most Transkei trips are not without drama but the magic allure of the Wild Coast keeps calling us back and my husband who has been fishing there for well over 30 years is completely smitten.
1. Perfect weather ( though sometimes it was a little too hot in our tented cabins).
The Lows (most of which weren't really low at all)
1. Though the trip down was interesting and picturesque it was slow and a bit hairy in places with livestock, nose to tail for the last 40 kilometres, however it was nowhere near as bad as it has been on other trips. They had layered the slippery slopes with chunks of rock and the rain held off except for a few short squalls. We stopped counting after 30 dead dogs and various other animals on the road.
2. Tarantulas under toilet seat rims ..... well only one but after that my imagination conjured up tarantulas leaping out from every nook and cranny. It is also Black Mamba country so I have to admit to being a bit skittish about long snakey shadows.
