Rock Formation With Bad Attitude
CREDIT: © Kagga Kamma Reserve/KaggaKamma.co.za
WHERE: Kagga Kamma Reserve, Ceres, South Africa. WHAT: private game reserve.
MAP: South Africa, Cape Region. Thumbnail pops-up larger image.
We found it difficult to look at today's picture without feeling the urge to add an anthropomorphic caption bubble. We guess there is probably a harsh Afrikaans expletive that would fit admirably. Unfortunately we do not speak Afrikaans, though at the Kagga Kamma private game reserve website they do, in addition to English and German.
The picture comes from the site gallery, which we enjoyed even though it needs a little maintenance attention from the webmaster. The sight of a second rock picture… well we leave it to your own imaginations. There is a detailed overview of the reserve history page, an activities page, and a map page with directions: should you be tempted to vacation to see the rock formations, wildlife, and Bushmen paintings, we suggest you explore the site menus. An aircraft runway is provided for those suitably equipped visitors who want to get there quickly.
[Thanks to Ian Pope for drawing attention to our neglect of this part of the world, and in particular to the area around Ceres in the Wineland: glug, glug, glug.]
