Written in South Africa, Pretoria.
The checkout from Swaziland was as easy as the entry to this country had been. In the queue for 2 minutes, one more stamp in the passport and that was it. A couple of hundred yards ahead the next country was waiting, South Africa. The paper work took more time there. I asked how long I could stay in the country and I was told that until January 31. Up to that date I was supposed to have the right to enter the country. It was something unexpected and new to me - because in the majority of the countries I had visited, the visas are issued for a certain period of time – either one month, or 90 days etc. And the period starts in the moment one enters the country. To be quite sure I asked it over once more and the answer was the same this time too.
And as the day was soon over I drove to Komantipoort ,the nearest place of a larger population, and it was supposed to have a decent mall, and camping place as well - and so it was. .
In the previous post, I promised to show pictures of animals and images of nature, and now this promise is fulfilled.
Elephants crossing the road.
Signposts in Kruger Park
I have sometimes missed this kind of a car, especially on rainy days. As it is possible to stand up there.
Next pictures are of mountainous Mpumalanga.
The Three Rondavels.
The mountains which remind of Zulu huts.
Blyde River Canyon
Bourke’s Luck Potholes
But here's another shower at a camp. The lower taps are for the bath, and there is a hole for water in the wall above the upper taps. So it is possible to wash this way as well.
Warning on a motorway.
It is already in Pretoria
