Photos of the Sunday Hike and Walk Klipriviersberg Johannesburg – 2022 January 02

What better way to start the New Year right than hiking at Klipriviersberg with a nice group. Today was the 1st time in 5 weeks we had no rain. Wait! Jason told me that there was a lot of rain in the Nature Reserve around 2-3 this morning. And as I am writing this post it started to rain again. We have been blessed with a good rainy season but I digress… We had sparkling blues skies and the Nature Reserve was lush green as not seen in years. Thorns on branches extended to cover parts of the trail to cut skin but all part of the fun. There were also beautiful tiny wild flowers everywhere.

We were fortunate to see Wildebeest, Springbok and did I mention about the dassies? Baby dassies looked cute and they were puzzled by the fact that we, humans were looking at them.

Despite the enormous difference in size between the two, the dassie is the African elephant’s closest living relative. The close evolutionary relationship between the teeny-tiny Dassie and the ginormous African Elephant is deduced from similarities in the structure of their feet and teeth.

Ilka commented:

The dassie is a relative of the elephant? Something went wrong, somewhere…

Everything fell into place perfectly on Sunday. It din’t rain throughout the hike, while a cool breeze blew, cooling us beautifully as we made our way through the nature reserve.

It was a pleasant surprise to see how the landscape has changed from the brown and barren winter look to beautiful, green and lush vegetation.

One can feel the rejuvination and healing because of being in such natural surroundings.

I also enjoyed the company of people who took part in the hike.

I thoroughly enjoyed this hike. Thank you Tony, David and Jason for organising and hosting yet another awesome hike.😊✨️

Thank you so much for your comment Teslar and for the 5 Star rating. Yes, remarkable how good rain at the right time turns a brownish Nature Reserve into a fresh and lush green Nature Reserve. Klipriviersberg can be enjoyed throughout the year: each season has its beauty. Thanks for being one of the Organisers and thank you for contributing to the success of our hikes at Klippies🙏😎🥾🌞

Hiking becomes a way of life, putting one foot after the next a motto to traverse life’s obstacles. I enjoy the care and sense of inclusion Tony and Jason provide to all participants. My brother and I joined the 15 km group, as I love the red trail, but due to work obligations, we left earlier, completing just under 8km. As always, Kliprivier provides options for all levels of fitness with beautiful scenery. Meeting a variety of people makes the journey more interesting. Thank you for the photos 😃

Such a lovely way to spend a Sunday morning. Completed a 15km hike with Tony, Dave and Sylvia. What makes a great hike besides the beautiful scenery, are great hiking hosts. Tony and team are so warm and welcoming and very inclusive throughout the hike, thank you for the hospitality! Lovely hike, lovely people!
