Northern Cape Road Trip - Favourite Images

We have been expanding and field-testing our Destination Guide for South Africa, and this month we were in the Northern Cape. However, this was far more pleasure than business! We river-rafted, 4x4'd, took a million photos, and had a once-in-a-lifetime sighting of bat-eared fox cubs!

This photo was the undeniable highlight of not just our Northern Cape trip, but of the entire year as well!  We found these gorgeous Bat Eared Fox cubs waiting for the water from a rainstorm to drain out of their burrow, and looking so unimpressed at being wet and cold!

We took a Guided Night Walk in the Witsand Nature Reserve, Northern Cape.  The scorpions and frog life were astounding!    - Nightjar Travel Blogs
