Lower Drakensberg Grasslands, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa

For a few months, spanning from summer to Fall, I worked for Tugela River Trails, a small guide company that takes school groups and brings them into the bush for extended journeys and adventures. My home, placed in the center of an crop circle, and next to an irrigation pivot, sat under the watchful eye of the Drakensberg Mountains. In these alpine grasslands and savannas, it was truly big sky country, with no shortage of wildlife, diverse sunrises/sunsets, and some amazing zulu culture.
