Every Thursday morning I get up with the birds. I put my backpack on my back, lace my boots and make sure my camera battery is fully charged. Thursday is hiking day. It has been for the past year of my life and probably will be till the day that I have to accept that old age has caught up with me. I can't believe all the beauty that I've discovered in this past year has always been right here, under my nose. I'd like to share some of my experiences, as seen through my camera lens, with you. Who knows, you might be inspired to go out and buy yourself a pair of hiking boots as well...

A different kind of hike...

Rhebokskloof Wine Estate - venue of today's hike. A very easy 5km hike followed by a wine tasting and leisurely lunch next to the dam. Frolicking Red-Knobbed Coots, a lone Heron, a couple of Egyptian Geese and the resident Jack Russel kept us company as we discussed topics ranging from Churchill to Tiramisu!

What can I say - just another brilliant day in Africa! For more on this lovely farm  - click here.
