Roadside Signs You Will Find Only In Africa!




Don't ask me why I take pictures of road signs...I have a blog you know...
This sign is about 100m from the entrance to the town of Hoedspruit..about a forty minute drive from where we live.





This one is close to our farm entrance...!Notice the orange orchards in the background...that is what our horseback out rides are like! That and riverine bush all along the Great Letaba river. The smell of those blossoms wafting through the house is amazing.





What, who, where???
 I can't see!!!
Don't worry,that's the diva in Minki after I applied her eye ointment the vet prescribed....
Her eyes are fine,her eyelids are stuck together every morning,so she has to have a bit of a lie in until I clean them for her....

  6. i still think having a hippo in such close vicinity to your place is freaky! such a great, different life you have. but you can keep those spitting cobras, thank you! (hi minki! glad you're doing okay!)

  10. You know, I killed a snake with a shovel last night and then felt awful because he wasn't going to hurt me, or eat me like the African snakes do. I think of you often and wonder how you learn to live in Africa.

  11. Poor Minki. I hope she's feeling better soon. The human wants to get a goat crossing sign for our road.

  13. You have a wonderful blog. I've been doing a little surfing today and came across it. Minki is so sweet. I'm glad she is getting over her run in with the cobra.

  15. Liesl, wouldn't a blog JUST ON SIGNS be neat?! I understand that one.....love to take photos of signs too.
    Good to see that Minki is recovering.
    Don't know how I'd feel if I saw a sign saying that this was a hippo crossing area! Probably put the car in reverse and head anywhere else!!lol

  16. Amazing to think of living where I could have an elephant or hippo wander by my house. And spitting cobras... yikes... hope Minki's eyes are ok now. Have a good weekend.
