Drakensburg break

Posted: March 23, 2019 in Family, holiday

After over a year, we finally managed to get away on our annual vacation. This year, we chose the mountains, and budget prevailing, we found an amazing self-catering resort in the Cathedral Peak Nature Reserve, Didima.

…our chalet, uninterrupted view overlooking the Cathedral Peak...

With my ankle still recovering from injury, major hiking was crossed off our list, however, we were able to go on one decently fairly long trek into the range. Despite being listed as a “gentle walk”, the ups and downs on rocks and narrow paths proved to be testing, and by the time we returned, my achilles and ligaments were swearing at me in every language an extremity could muster.

The outdoors offering us a host of experiences and opportunities to relax

...not forgetting gymnastics practice on the drive down…

…renewing my forgotten love for photography…

… with wild hare crossing our path…

…locusts…

 

…a few crabs challenging us…

tracking spoor…

…friendly locals waving us by…

..and of course, some golfing at the nearby Cathedral Peak golf course…

An opportunity for us as a family to reconnect and enjoy some time away from the world

all in all, a very relaxing holiday so far
