A split rock at Lekhubu Island,

Botswana.

 

Layer upon layer of limestone rock supports

Victoria’s,

Great Ocean Road.

 

By the time I read of these rock stacks along

Victoria’s Great Ocean Road

I’m sure many of the tourists who had created

them had returned and knocked down

their creation.

 
 
 
 
 

Balancing rocks in South Africa’s,

Kruger or Greater Kruger National Park.

 

Decorative rocks at the edge of

Warrnambool’s tourist lake,

Lake Pertobe.

 

Closer to home…in fact nearly at our back door…

well, about 10 km away…

…is Dog Rocks.

 

If I have asked why it’s called Dog Rocks,

I have not received a satisfactory answer. 

 

Dog Rocks is very popular with photography enthusiasts,

for both day and night photography

as it is far enough away from city lights

that no ambient light can intefer.

 

My final rock is/was Ayres Rock.

It is now known as Uluru.

Climbing Ayres Rock was almost mandatory in 1975. 

Over my left shoulder is another formation

known as The Olgas. 

Both are well worth visiting.

Unforeseen 1: Our 2013 safari itinerary did not state

that there would be an evening game drive…

 

…the day before we were due to depart

Sausage Tree Safari Camp.

 

Unforeseen 2:  Our driver told us

There has been a sighting,

but it’s at the other end of the reserve”.

So, for the next ten minutes we held on tightly

as we bumped our way along a rudimentary track

We soon came upon Limpy the Lioness…

…and her Cubs

It didn’t take long until…

…the Cubs decided…

…elephant dung…

…was a good place to do…

…some tourist watching.

 

These are…

 

…but…

…a sample…


…of the 300 photos taken during our twenty minute sighting.

The following image was on my Facebook feed

at the weekend…

If you think this could not happen…

 

 

 

…think again, perhaps.

This image was captured on

our 2013 Safari to South Africa.

Stay safe.    🙂

A back road near Geelong

with a beautiful view.

***

Not a Botswana back road,

however with wandering livestock,

it could be a back road

We travelled over this road for several hours

before reaching the salt lake.

 

Greater Kruger National Park…

…provided a variety of tracks/roads

and many wandering wildlife.

 

This Kruger National Park road

may pass for a back road,

but it isn’t and that maybe that is

why the hyenas used it.
