Still learning the roads 🙂 – Today I drove on the reserve from 9am to 5pm and I am quite tired now.

In the late afternoon I got surrounded by a herd of Buffalo. Have a look at the pictures to see how close they get. There attitude would change completely if one should get out of the car. They would go immediately into defense/attack mode.

Also I found a vista point from where one has a beautful view of Thanda and the hills beyond. I have included a picture looking at Thanda’s southern area.

Tomorrow I have to go to town (Richards Bay) to get some more things I need and to take care of some customs business (to get all my belongings into the country).

Enjoy the pictures!

  1. Happy Birthday Chris. It sounds like you are experiencing all the best Thanda has to offer. Enjoy.


  2. I just want you to know that each day I look forward to reading about your adventures. Several of us are talking about making the trek. Thanks for your posts….they are just wonderful.

  3. Christian,The picture of you and the buffalo,what a way to express what your all about.It’s just a true reflection of whats inside. This is you!! No doubt about it…. What do you do in a situation like that? Sit and take pics and wait for them to move on or could you drive on thru? At this point I’d think they were the boss of things.I wouldn’t want to get hooked by that horn! BE SAFE OUT THERE!!

  4. Greetings from Lebanon,TN. I am LOVING your photos and commentary! I have been before and I hope to make it again for a personal tour… BTW, Happy Birthday!
