Drakensberg-Thursday-3/18

Underberg/Bergville, Day 44-Underberg and Bergville are both near the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg National Park. Underberg is in the South and Bergville is in the North. We spent the day mostly on dirt or rock roads traversing the foothills of the mountain ranges. Tonight we are staying at the Little Switzerland Resort up in the mountains outside of Bergville.

What to do when driving along, you are confronted with a herd of cattle? We were all confused! The cattle stopped moving and so did we. We froze looking at each other until the herder got the cattle moving again.

I got to drive today for the first time and Pete got to experience riding on the left side. Very scary until you get use to being so close to the edge of the highway.

We stopped to stretch our legs at Highmoor Reserve in the park. We were walking to a dam just a little over kilometer from the entry, when Pete noticed something moving to the side of the path. It was a large Egyptian Cobra. Pete was out in front and within 1 1/2 steps from the snake when expanded its hood in warning. Pete quickly backed up and we decided to let the snake have the dam.

The uKhahlamba-Drakensberg mountains are stunning. The view from our room at Little Switzerland Resort is wonderful.
