Spotted Hyena baby

The spotted hyena baby. We found his den, and it seemed like he was very bored while having to wait for his family to return from their morning hunt. But when they got home, it was so special to witness how much the whole family loved this little baby.

Brown Hyena Strandwolf Aardwolf

The Brown Hyena, such a beauty and a rare sighting indeed. We spent a good hour in his company. Die Strandwolf ook bekend as die Aardwolf. Hierdie skaam aasdier is ook 'n lid van die hiena familie en sy nagtelike bewegings hou hom skaars vir die daaglikse besoekers. Dis juis oor die feite wat hierdie ondervinding om hom raak te loop so spesiaal gemaak het. Hy was ook 'n paar keer uitgesaai op die TV program Projek: Aardwolf op kykNET

Sunrise Hike up Table Mountain

 We ventured up Platteklip Gorge at 6am to catch the sunrise at 07h30. On our way up, it started raining, and when we got to the top, it was covered in clouds and very little visibility. We were however spoilt with rainbows all over the Atlantic ocean, and a small patch of sun peeking through the clouds as we decended back down. — at Table Mountain.

Another beautiful rainbow over Houtbay and the Tokai Peak to the left of it

The rainbow over the Atlantic provided us with a picture opportunity around every corner

Table Mountain Giftshop in the back ground and the reflection of a beautiful rainbow to welcome us

After a hot chocolate ontop of the mountain, a comfy ride down the cable car and a short walk back to the car, the sun peeked through the thick cloud cover onto the harbour and parts of Cape Town

Supermoon over Cape Town

The supermoon for 2012 was just about to set over the horizon on Sunday morning... we managed to get it just in time before it dissapeared into the mist (at sunrise)
