Sani weekend – Post 1

Charmain arranged a weekend away to the Drakensberg middle December 2013, and even though it was not a full blown holiday it turned out to be a spectacular break-away.

As always lots of pictures were taken and the trip to the destination was as much part of the fun as the destination(s) itself.

We left a very wet Gauteng and it was clear that the rain was widespread with a Freestate as green as ever.

Since we had time to spare we decided to pop in at Warden and check out the little town. Sadly as with many of the ‘platteland dorpies’ it is also slipping into neglect.

The most prominent building as with many of these small towns is the church.

With clouds gathering there were photo opportunities around every corner.

As usual we slept over at ‘De Oude Huize’ in Harrismith and did some exploring of the area after we unpacked. Some stunning areas in the vicinity of the N3(Van Rheenen’s pass).

The next day we took the road less traveled to Sani pass and saw some stunning places.

More about that in the next post.
