Lighthouse shadow

Umhlanga Rocks has many luxury hotels and apartments right on the beach, including the Cabana Beach Hotel, the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Oyster Box Hotel, the Umhlanga Sands Hotel and Pearls of Umhlanga apartments. Many of these have views of the landmark lighthouse. It has a large increase in population during the summer months.

I look back…

Oryx is a genus consisting of four large antelope species. Three of them are native to arid parts of Africa, and the fourth to the Arabian Peninsula. Their fur is pale with contrasting dark markings in the face and on the legs, and their long horns are almost straight. The exception is the scimitar oryx, which lacks dark markings on the legs, only has faint dark markings on the head, has an ochre neck, and horns that are clearly decurved.

Just a wisp

The Bridal Veil Falls is just outside Sabie, Mpumalanga in South Africa. It is 146m high.
It is situated just outside Sabie and is accessible by car, with parking and picnic area on SAFCOL’s grounds. From there an easy footpath runs through bush scenery for about 1 km (15 minutes’ walk) directly to the waterfall.
