Bobbejaankrans

Bobbejaankrans is a lookout point in the Kruger about 12kms from Orpen Gate. This view is of the road away from the viewpoint which I preferred on the day because of the sky which had some lovely moody clouds.

I've tried to give this picture a vintage look through processing and although I like it it might not work for everyone.

Durban Rickshaw

The rickshaw (rickshaw) was brought to Durban, in 1893, by the sugar magnate Sir Marshall Campbell, from London. The design was based on the Japanese design and incorporated into a transport system, which only had a handful of cars. They were used to transport ladies and gentlemen to the Berea and back. They were also made available for seaside tourists.


By the 1920’s the rickshaw (rickshaw) was a very well known symbol of the city in general. In 1902, at its peak, more than 24,000 men registered as pullers, for no less than 1,700 rickshas (rickshaws). The men would come to the city for a few months and then return to the country with their earnings.


These iconic symbols are very much part of the Durban main beach rickshaw culture that is Durban. Although, there are only a handful left, their pullers are very dedicated to this dying craft. Although there are less than 20 pullers left, they are dedicated to the art of thrilling their customers. Aside from the beautiful decorated transport, the pullers are decked out in beautiful head-dresses, which are mainly beads and other traditional decorations. All of these beautiful decorations are hand crafted, and there are no two the same. for more info see durban-tourism.com/Rickshaw.html

Sprinbok

Wild South Africa
Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park


Fond memories - the Springbok prefers the more arid savannas of the country, moving around at high speeds. Typical of this species is the jumping display which lead to its common name.
