RIVERS, ROCKS AND RECOVERIES: Lesotho is one of the premier 4x4 playgrounds for South Africans, who like to make things interesting by visiting in winter when heavy snowfalls and extreme cold make the mountain kingdom both beautiful and brutal. Bush Editor Patrick Cruywagen, driving a G-Wagen, timed it just right and got his fair share of snow, mud, rain, cold, skiing, drama, donkeys and friendly Basotho people.
Drakensberg mountain. Stunning photo. Brings back fond memories of when I lived in South Africa for 4 years in my teens - we drove throught the drakensberg mountains enroute to Durban. Beautiful landscape, beautiful people but ugly political system (apartheid) back then. Would love to re-visit the post-apartheid S.A..
