Icy Winter Wonderland

We have almost reached the winter solstice, giving us Southern Hemisphere dwellers the longest night of the year. The morning safaris at Tanda Tula recently have been icy cold, reminding us this frosty dawn activity is not for the faint hearted. 

However there is something truly ethereal about the luminescent light and enchantment at dawn in the bush veld, the grasses are covered in dew drops on the verge on becoming icicles and spider webs glisten in the morning light like a magical string of starlets. 

It really is quite breath taking, maybe in more ways than one! And although its freezing now while out on safari we know we have reached the pinnacle, hopefully the warm days are just beyond the horizon.
