Richtersveld

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian - 26-Dec-21

Richtersveld

To visit the park I stayed at the Vioolsdrift Lodge just across the border from Namibia. At the time it was run by a lovely family so I highly recommend it, great tents and a bar where you wouldn't expect one. The lady (formerly German I believe) also gave me superb info on the park and since I had a 4x4 on the trip I could access the park from a little road that goes northwest along the river. What you see are some low cliffs but the road is very shoddy, with big spiky rocks all over the place. It gets rougher as you go along. This may not be the main path into the park. It takes quite a while to get into the park and then it's still a while to see more things that you are looking for

RHINO! Well, at the time I was so excited but since then I have seen many of them all over the world. My noobish question to the staff at the visitor center if they could give me hints of where there is a higher chance to run into them was just got me shaking heads. There is even a huge "DO NOT POST RHINO SIGHTINGS" in the logbook. Shortly after leaving the visitor center and veering off the main road I saw a huge boulder blocking the path - turned it out was a rhino after all. It didn't like the car coming but didn't run into the distance either. I also need to say that if you stick to the main road of the park you will not see too much and the smaller roads are rough. You can take most with an SVU but a 4x4 is recommended so you don't get stuck out there - pretty much Safari 101

Chongoni Rock Art

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian - 26-Dec-21

Chongoni Rock Art

Usually this place isn't high on the list of travelers to Malawi. My visit was part of a safari tour that took me from Lake Malawi through Zambia to Botswana and it had this as a scheduled stop. The driver stated he rarely goes there and only because I had selected the "extensive" tour. From the only road across the country there is a road leading south that goes to the rock art. It is clearly signed, not that I think you'll be driving on your in Malawi but it's not unheard of. The closer you get to the sites the worse the road gets, eventually just dirt roads and little villages. That might explain why most safari tours avoid it

Archaeological Site of Priene (T)

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian - 26-Dec-21

Archaeological Site of Priene (T)

Priene is a great location next to the mountains. It's a vast area that will take you hours to see. The map alone will show that. Its layout is easy to walk around too, like a well-designed town. The main problem is that that most of what remains are in ruins, and what surprises you is that most of the building blocks are still around, waiting for some money and time spent on getting this place put back together. Potential is huge here as none of the huge pieces were taken away to build something new later, a common thing with so many antique sites

Archaeological Site of Assos (T)

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian - 26-Dec-21

Archaeological Site of Assos (T)

A small detour worth taking, the entrance is up a hill behind the village and after a few more steep rocks later you can reach the Temple of Athena, the only thing you can really see left of the area. Over time it was transformed into a castle and the temple only has a few things remaining. It boast the oldest Doric columns in Anatolia and that's pretty much all you can still see - not quite unique enough on its own I think, but what I found very pleasing is the sheer location of the temple at the cliffs - so surprised it hasn't eroded away over the centuries from constant battering of the sea winds. While I would like to see it inscribed I think a lof of these temples at the Aegean sea should be combined into something, like, Temples of the Aegean Sea in Turkey?
