” the paths I follow fan out, coverge and disappear in a swirl of dust “
Difficult to know where to start or where it will all end. We are merely spectators, witnesses to everything we experience.
Despite the humps and bumps along the way, we just managed to get everyone in before the Coronavirus changed everything.
Sharing is caring. But what incentive is there for writers to write? To ask the questions that need to be asked, to explore and open the doors to what is new and exciting?
We have all the tools we need. But not the means.
This is what we need to change. At the beginning of everything we know today, webmasters would scour the net looking for sites with which they could exchange links and interact. But those days are gone. Just as most of the technical obstacles we all used to encount are gone.
Today anyone can set up a hosting account and a web site of their own with the minimal amount of help and without breaking the bank. Something that should ensure that this be a golden age. The realisation of all the dreams, hopes and aspirations. A culture that facilitates the free transfer of skills and know how.
But reality couldn’t be further from the truth. Greed and stupidity have dumbed it down to the point where we no longer communicate. And that needs to change.
It was all going to be so easy: we’d build an information superhighway and young Wěi in Beijing would talk to his friends William in London and Wandile in Cape Town, education would segue through the population like water through a sieve, and it’d all be peace and puppies.

Ngepi Camp is one of those special places. It situated in Okavango delta panhandle in the Western Caprivi strip in Namibia
The camp is laid out under the canopy of trees with a river frontage. And during the season it is surrounded by water becomming an island. Lying between Mahango National park, and the Bwabwata National Park directly opposite across the river there is an abundance of game.

The Tsala Treetop Lodge is set in the canopy of an ancient indigenous forest. Rough stone-masonry and water features prepare one for breath taking views from private elevated tree-house suites constructed from stone, wood and glass offering with private decks looking out over the treetops and infinity plunge pools. Glass walls provide surround-scene forest views and bathrooms have deep, free-standing stone tubs, twin sinks and al fresco showers.
Leaving Cape Town spend a couple of nights in the winelands. Both Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are good stopovers. There are wine tours and great restaurants.
Carry on through the Robertson valley to join the R62 to Montagu, Barrydale, and Oudtshoorn. From there its across the Outeniqua pass to George and then Knysna, Plettenbery Bay and Tsitsikamma.
On the return leg take the N2 to Mossel Bay then through the farmlands in the Overberg region and Cape Agulhas at the southern most point of Africa. From there back to Hermanus for whale sighting during the Whale season from July to October. And along the coastal road back to Cape Town.
