The Panorama Route

[I'm playing catch-up on our time in South Africa, so if you missed how we got from Cape Town to Johannesburg, check out my previous post. ]

We left Pretoria mid-morning on July 17, after a stop to stock up on supplies for the week. From there, we headed south, toward Nelspruit and the start of The Panorama Route, which is a scenic drive, with amazing vistas and interesting places to get out and take in the sights. It winds gloriously through the mountains and pine forests of the area. We took in some truly amazing views, including waterfalls, canyons, rain forests, pine forests, and even some fairly significant (and kind of scary) wildfires, on our way to The Shoe, where we were to stay for the night. It was a lovely day, and we were thankful we built an extra day in to our agenda to make this scenic route possible.

The wildfire looked even more intense with the sunset behind it.

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe...

...She had so many children, she didn't know what to do!
