Faery Tree…

I bet the tree faeries live in trees like this…


All those cute little caves!


Bring out my inner monkey!


Matopos Rocks…



Two ducks? Or a lady-rock lying on her back!

You tell me!

Weird how many shapes one can see in the rocks in Matopos.P1280651

In some light, this rock seems to me to be a grumpy old man’s face!

Matopos Roads…

There is something about a road that enhances photos – makes you wonder where its going, or what is around the next, I guess.


This first one is taken at Mshelele Dam, one of my favourite places in Matopos.


The road is fairly bad here, so stopping for a pic wasnt much effort


I liked the colours in this one, the winter yellows and browns showing now. The gold of the grass is, of course, classic Matabeleland.


Can’t resist that pink tree.


This rock is amazing with that slab hanging off the side! The road passes so close to it, that it towers right over your head.


Nswatugi Cave…

This cave is a favourite of mine – the climb is less than several others in the area, since the car takes you most of the way!P1280599

I was able to visit this old friend of mine on the way to the cave. I hardly ever go past here nowadays, as the road is so bad. I find it more efficient to climb up from the carpark below.


We picked up a Russian guy at the main park gate (described as a ‘visitor to our country’ by the National parks rangers who asked us to give him a lift)  – poor bloke, I don’t think he knew what he was letting himself in for! Goggled at us chatting to our favourite trees and taking pics of rocks!
