Baviaanskloof Shepherd's Hut On Mountaintop
South Africa

While visiting the Baviaanskloof (Baviaansvalley) in the Eastern Cape, I was visiting with the Kruger couple on the farm Zandvlakte. Zandvlakte is really quite an astonishing place being purposefully being rehabilitated back to nature. The Sheperd's hut is located on a mountaintop and the view looks out over the majestic environment. You can actually arrange to stay there, but do not expect electricity, cellphone reception, or any conveniences. The closest supermarket is more than two hours away (half an hour with a serious 4x4 vehicle up the mountain) There is however a gas cooker, and a bed. If you truly want to get away to write that novel, write those songs for your new cd or just clear your head.- this is probably one of he best places to go. You will be alone except for the odd wild antelope, baboon, leopard or cow.

More About Africa

Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.Text by Steve Smith.
