2015 Travel & Things, my year in review. part 2.

2015 turned out to be a VERY busy travel year for me.
Three international destinations
and locally I went from Pofadder to the Waterberg
I have sold some of my images both locally and internationally.
These are limited, signed editions that can be bought directly from me.
I love the suburb that we live in.
For me Linden is like "small town" South Africa.
Except that we don't have to travel hours to visit.
Not quite a rant tab, but pretty close.
A bit of this and that from the year in review.
The Sun newspaper must have the "best" headlines.
We returned to Sabi Sands where we spent a few days at Inyati.
THE place to go if you want to see leopards.
Life and death before my lens.
Right or wrong, this is why we go to the bush.
The circle of life.
This Eland calf went from alive to dead in 2 seconds!
The best lodge in Madikwe...
Jamala Madikwe.
They offer the best "Sofa-Safari"
We headed out to the Magaliesberg area.
Only an hour from our house, yet we feel like we are in a different province.
Our "home-away-from-home".
This B&B in Ladysmith KZN is the best.
And the owners make a mean potjie.
I visited Lion Sands, Kruger National Park for a second time.
And I spent the night alone in their tree house.
I got to do a road trip with my daughter as she headed back to Cape Town.
We spent in Hanover at this B&B.
My favourite airport...
Skukuza in the Kruger National Park
I spent four days with a group of trainees as they
worked towards completing their Trails module.
One of the highlights of my year!

I visited this white squatter camp outside Pretoria.
