Golden Gate National Park, South Africa


Some viewers asked where my South Africa photos are.
I am still here for another five days, but time and good internet access are quite limited.


I thought you might like to see the rustic farmhouse in an isolated field in the
Golden Gate Highlands where we stayed one night last week.  It is on the west side of the
Drakensbergs, near Lesotho, just outside the Free State town of Clarens.
Two beautiful horses visited the next morning.

Oh, how lovely! The top photo is truly beautiful and the visiting horses are a delight. Alan Paton was right when he called South Africa, the beloved country. I would so much like to visit it again! I am happy that you get to see it, and I cannot wait to see other photos.

Wow. I can't get over the horses. The one in back has its ears forward, listening and the one in front has his backwards listening to hear any sounds his pal might make. I love these animals. I am also fascinated with your adventures in South Africa.

Nice photos. It's a fascinating country. The country also produces some very fine wines, but I think more to the southwest from where you are. Enjoy your trip.

It's true I haven't seen many SA photos anywhere. It looks beautifully wild here. What a treat to see the horses.

Kay said...

What a spectacular setting, and equine visitors to boot! Did one actually come onto the porch? And what is that equipment back behind the house?

That countryside is so gorgeous. I hope you'll share more pictures of your trip.
