Ratelfontein – Day 1, after the journey…

10 Jan

After we all went for much needed afternoon nap, we went exploring a little bit. Only looking from the veranda, this place is photographer paradise. Nature is so beautiful. I usually prefer taking pictures of people but here, I can identify with Nico when he goes on long walks to take pictures of landscape. Here, I can’t get enough of it!

Late afternoon, we went for a ride in a game viewer,

and saw geese (ok not game!) but in a beautiful setting nonetheless!

Three of my favourite people on two of my favourite pictures for the day,

And giraffes (there are only five on the farm so that was a great bonus)

And miscellaneous carcasses,

Life slows down here. We went back to the farm for a well deserved night in a bed!
