We usually camp when visiting the Mountain Zebra National Park: the camping area is lovely and provides magnificent opportunities for photographing birds. How glad I am that circumstances dictated that we opt for a chalet during this visit for the prevailing temperature was icy cold!
It was so cold that every morning the windscreens of our respective vehicles bore visual signs of why we felt so icy.
This is an unusual experience for us, so I appreciated the pretty patterns seen from within the warmth of the vehicle.
Even in the mid-morning sunshine, there was evidence of the cold in the stalagmite that formed under a dripping tap during the night.
Here is a section of ice retrieved from one of the swings next to the swimming pool.
The air was crisp and the views stretched out to forever.
We will return once the weather has warmed up a little!
