god's window

so i took another drive through the lowveld and ended up at god's window seen above, although this photo does not do justice to its true beauty. it is apparently called god's window because it is so beautiful that god uses it for his view when he wakes up in the morning. i dont' know if this is true, but it is spectacular. the lowveld is truly amazing in its beauty. from nelspruit where i live you can drive basically in any direction and find splendor, and that's just on the drive.

it occurred to me, nelspruit is a well kept secret. most visitors to our country will only pass through here on the way to the kruger park, if that. they usually go to all the usual destinations. don't get me wrong. i think those destinations are also beautiful. but the lowveld is really worth a bit more time than it is usually given. i think it would be slightly more in the line of the typical african experience as portrayed on tv etc. than for example cape town would be.

for people who are considering a trip to africa in general and south africa in specific, may i humbly suggest some time spent in the lowveld. it really is worth it.


p.s i am not paid by the mpumalanga tourism board or any other board to give these views. just thought i'd drop a non medical post.

I was homesick before, now I'm in mourning! I think it's time my very English children experienced the Kruger.

Bongi, I started reading your blogs from the beginning very recently, and must congratulate you on a great collection of stories from your life - extremely well written!
I too, studied medicine at Tuks, and has been working and living in Canada for the last 13 years or so.
Spent 8 months of my military service in Kruger, some time at Bourke's Luck, and got to know and love the lowveld intimately...
Thanks for the great posts, brings back lots of memories from kalafong (some used to call it fakalong?) and tembisa....
