As we were due to be up very early for a meerkat safari (which didn’t happen because of rain) we didn’t take up the option of the ostrich farm tour. We had a leisurely day exploring the Swartberg Pass and the area around the Cango Caves.
Stunning scenery again.
We spent quite some time watching the southern masked weavers “weaving” their nests and came across the southern red bishop for the first time. I gather it is quite a common bird but it is the first time we had seen it and it is quite stunning.
