Amakhosi!

I was not driving guests today, but I had very special mission.

I took a first series of pictures of three Amakhosi (Traditional Leaders / Chiefs / in the Zulu language: Amakhosi). They are the leaders of the three communities which border Thanda Private Game Reserve.

To meet all three chiefs in their communities I had to drive over 180km through the Zululand mountains. I was glad I had my Toyota Fortuner, a capable 4×4, because I had to get up some very rocky hills.

Next week I will repeat the tour for a second set of pictures of the gentlemen in traditional Zulu attire. It was a most interesting day 🙂

Today’s picture was taken from the top of one of the hills I climbed with my car.
