At Last We Spotted Zebra in Cape Point Nature Reserve…

December 8th, 2015 · 6 Comments

So we needed a day off the grid and where better to go than the beautiful Cape Point…

A little “Skorkling” as my kids say…

And then we were off on a quick hike…

A very easy route, that we haven’t taken before…

To one of our favourite spots, Sirkelsvlei…

We have never seen Sirkelslvei from this side… and everyone knew they would have to dive in for a swim as soon as they saw it.

And that was us… another hike under our belts…

We weren’t the only ones who needed a day in the great outdoors…

So many Baboons

We have never ever seen so many baboons out all at once before. All that was totally burnt out at the beginning of the year, is now covered in bright green and fresh growth. A veritable feast…

And the Zebra

After more than two years of hiking and searching high and low, were very surprised and delighted to discover the zebra…

I might have been a little snap happy and taken many more than enough photographs – we were that excited!!!

Striking as they are… they are surprisingly well camouflaged…

And then up close, you can’t believe that you missed them…

And that was us… refreshed and ready to take on the world again.

    Well you know, I’m quite pleased you were snap happy with the zebra, as that’s something I’m not likely to see in my lifetime. I just cannot get over that!
