On Monday we departed Port Elizabeth for some inland touring. We are taking a few days to explore the hinterland. On day one we drove to the town of Cradock and visited the nearby Mountain Zebra National Park. The drive up to and through the pass at Olifantsop was spectacular, with cloudy skies on the seaward side becoming bright sunshine on the other.
We saw a large number of mountain zebras in the park. They, springbok and black wildebeest seem most common here.
There were many ostriches in the park too.
