Our walk this morning took us along the contour path, westwards from the Visitors’ Centre, then up Elephant Path to Rotary Way. From there we went east until we eventually arrived at the top of the Kanonkop Path, which we descended back to our starting point. The weather was perfect for walking, but we underestimated the time, so some of us had to break away in order to get back in time for other commitments.
The walk was 10 km long and we went through plenty of recently burnt fynbos, giving the botanists lots to enthuse about. The pictures come mostly from Liz, who had her camera at the ready throughout. There were also some good birds on display, including Cape Rock Thrush, Cape Rockjumper, Ground Woodpecker and Verreaux’s Eagle.
We really stretched our legs and had a good time, enjoying the splendour that surrounds us!
