New Rooikop View-Point

Posted on 25th November 2013 by Carol Fox

Justin’s provided us with a spectacular new panoramic VIEW-POINT up on one of the highest spots on SIBUYA... ROOIKOP (Literally translated from the Afrikaans, means “Redhead”). This will be a magnificent site for picnics and sun-downers alike. Not only is the view breath-taking from here, but it overlooks a water-hole so should provide good game viewing and photographic opportunities as well. Read More »

As yet we don't have a picture to publish for you because the conditions haven't been ideal for photography lately but hopefully Chris will oblige soon! This bird, although a nomad, is way south of its usual range, so as soon as we have the visual proof, the serious "twitchers" in the area will be notified. Read More »
