The Amphitheatre

If there is one thing I’ve learnt while out on tour is that there is nothing I can do about the weather! In March I was on tour in the northern Drakensberg to visit the Amphitheatre. Our first stay over was at Thendele where it happened to be misty and rainy for the entire 24 hours we were there;)

What mountain?!

Great rain jacket – thanks First Ascent for keeping me dry!

Please let me in…It’s wet out here

Lovely forest walk around camp

Rainy birds;)

When we drove out the following morning, the river had come up significantly overnight so I walked the route first to make sure no potholes had formed that I could get stuck in…

It’s a bit wet out there!

The following day the sun came out brilliantly and we returned to get some photos.
There is the mountain I promised was hidden in the mist: The Amphitheatre
We had a lovely morning hike from The Cavern and I spotted a beautiful chameleon – photo taken by Neil:
