the lodge at Hluhluwe National Park (pronounced shoo-shoo-we or something like that)

Views of the park, which is monsoonal forest. This area has a lengthy dry season.

St Lucia River, which is good for hippo and crocodile spotting. It looked like Phoenix reclinata was native there.

window washer and hawker near Durban

coconut palm near Durban. I missed the coastline between here and Port Elizabeth, so I don't know where the southern limit is.

I was headed inland to the Drakensburg Mountains

AAH Phil, Now you have really made me homesick, that part of Natal is where I grew up!! Born in a town there called Empangeni and then lived in Richards Bay for 29 years, then a year on a farm outside of Empangeni and then Johannesburg before moving to Cork, Ireland. You've made my day!!

By the way, Hluhluwe is pronounced ShlooShlooWE.

Regards,

Craig
