So swiveling to my right from yesterday’s photo of the Blyde River Nature Reserve and one finds The Three Rondavels filling the viewfinder – well, at least if you have a zoom lens.
Of course, no great natural vista is truly complete without some form of man-made scar and this is no exception – the radio mast is five miles away from my location.
A Rondavel is a round hut with a cone-shaped roof, hence the name given to these rock features.
The Drakensberg is topped by a 1,400 m thick layer of basalt. Here we can see how it has eroded over the millennia to leave these formations.
The challenge with traveling this area is that there are so many wonders to see, they start to blend with each other and you can become immune to them.
