We descended quite steeply into the valley, crossed the stream below the dam and ventured along a circular route which lead us through indigenous forest and back to higher ground. Once we had climbed out of the valley it was time for a relaxation break. The short grass around the upper dam was an ideal place to rest and enjoy the company of our hikers in the tranquility of the wildlife park. Looking south across to Hillcrest and beyond, if it were not for the hazy conditions I am sure we could have seen the ocean.
Once back at the boma the fire was lit and 13 of us tucked into our braai meat and salads before drifting off to enjoy the rest of the day in the comfort of our homes. Some weary hikers would probably have fallen asleep in front of the 'tele'.
