After leaving the @karoo1_hotel_village (those cute sheep) the next stop was the Desert Botanical Gardens in #Worcestor. @sanbi_za it was fantastic. The plant life was all just starting to bloom and the daisies were all blooming as well as the variety of aloes. But the birds! So many sunbirds, hoopoes and weavers just flitting about. Lunch was had at the restaurant onsite and it was tasty.

Back to Johannesburg after many stops. The drive back from Port Elizabeth to Johannesburg was long but filled with sights.

• emptiness of the Karoo
• all the aloes in bloom huge fields just filled with blooms
• sunset as entering Gauteng
• sunset, the colours always stun me
