Beautiful #sunset The #valleyofdesolation at its best!! Recently listed as one of the 25 most instagrammable spots in @southafrica by @travelstart was also one of the main highlights of the first held a few years ago ~ Great memories!!! Everyone must be soo excited about the upcoming meeting at the coast - Whilst busy planning for the meet, remember to post a few of your great photos of the Valley of Desolation outside @shotleft @KarooHeartland @sanparks @visitsouthafrica_uk @experienceeastcape And if travelling through en-route to Arniston please stop off & say hi (a tag will do!) ...
Not recommended if you have a fear of heights! Stunning and so tranquil (except for chatter of tourists from large bus that arrived at the same time 🤣) luckily the video didn’t capture the sound of me saying “nick its too high get away from the edge! Nick it’s too high I feel sick, nick it’s too high can I walk down instead of drive?” #camdeboo#camdeboonationalpark
School holidays are for glamping and game drives. Visited Camdeboo National Park for the first time with the kids. Followed by Mountain Zebra National Park and Addo Elephant National Park, because when in the EC ... @sanparks #camdeboonationalpark#liveyourwild

A beautiful rainbow #shotoniphone Can’t do justice to the amazing colours seen in the rainbow Love it when it rains in the Karoo @karooheartland #karooheartland @smalltownsouthafrica @meetsouthafrica @ontmoetzuidafrika
Heart of the campsite - the breakfast table. Good coffee, homemade rusks and delicious treats. On one trip I forgot the inside bits of the percolator! We made coffee with a (clean) sock for the rest of that trip!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸 #nikonfm2n⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎞 #fujicolor200⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sunset & sundowners - our favourite evening pitstop in #camdeboo. From here we would watch blesbok, springbok, red hartebeest, cape mountain zebra, kudu, gemsbok and eland coming down for an evening drink at the dam. . 📸 #nikonfm2n 🎞 . . . . .

|Greater Kudu| Maybe one of the most badass animals I came across in South Africa. Their name is derived from the Afrikaans word koedoe, meaning part zebra part deer. It’s pretty common to find Kudu jerky in gas stations there, but the meat has a real gamey, almost liver like taste. - - #kudu#greaterkudu
This view on top of #kudoeskloof was well worth the rocky 4x4 trail ✌️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ PS If you’re thinking of heading that way beware - the track is ANNOYINGLY bumpy.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #landscapephotography ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Camdeboo National Park was only proclaimed in 2005 and became the 22nd National Park in South Africa. Just outside of Graaf-Reinet in the Karoo, one of the hidden gems of the region. The park is best known for the incredible Valley Of Desolation entrance is only R43. . . . . #southafrica#shotoniphone
Spontaneous trips are my favourite, they always bring the most amazing surprises. This climb to the edge of a hill showed a wonderful view of the town Graaf Reinet, surrounded by vast expanses of karoo. From forests to dry landscapes, South Africa has it all! ♥️
With just 230mm average rainfall per year, Camdeboo National Park enjoyed a few showers yesterday. We couldn’t understand why there were so many tortoises on the road... realised later that they come onto the road to drink - more chance of the water pooling on the tarmac. Clever tortoises ❤️ #nature#valleyofdesolation
Feeling a bit under the weather today, so the couch became a 5th limb. 🛋 • • • So I spent the afternoon reminiscing about the day the weather almost detailed this adventure in South Africa, but fear not. The adventure was had, and it was epic.
Magnificent, age-old spires of rock found in the Valley of Desolation - that one can see while exploring the numerous trails in Camdeboo National Park. #hikemzantsi 📷 @deenthate . . . . . . . #hikingsouthafrica
So ein Golf 1 ist ja eine feine Sache, aber für den Sommer in Berlin könnte ich mir diese Karre auch gut vorstellen... 🐆 🚙 *** Can I have your car for the Berlin summer @chantellemarais? Then I can drive you around and show you all the beautiful places?! #jeep#jeepsafari
|Golden Hour| The three principles of light: 1) Intensity 2)Direction 3) Quality. For most of us who pick up a camera, skills come gradually with time and practice. It’s a process. The more I learn about how the basic principles interact the more I see my photos improve. For others getting started too, keep these in mind when you shoot / develop. Makes a big difference. - - #earthbound#ourplanetdaily
