Skryf Safari – Hoekom blog ek?

Kom ons begin by die begin. Ek het in ‘n wildreservaat in die Oos-Vrystaat gewoon toe ek begin skryf het. (Ons het intussen getrek na ‘n plaas net buite Bloemfontein in die Brandfort distrik.)Kliek gerus op die skakels om die stories te sien. Good bye Eastern Freestate Welcome to Bakoorvlakte So, om terug te kom…

Ubuntu Adventures

I have an unstoppable desire to be part of an adventure. When I am done with one, or even while I am busy, I already start thinking of where I can go or what to do next. While I was pregnant, I would still try to do daily hikes on the farm. Also, because I…

Trail-cam Shenanigans

Last year I wrote about the Bat-eared Foxes of Bakoorvlakte. I have recently tried to find them again, especially now that it is winter again, and theoretically they should be more active in the day. I haven’t really had any luck myself to find them in day time, but my trail-cam did. My husband gave…

Raising a Spotted Hyena Part 5

This is the fifth and final part on the story of Crocuta. Crocuta was now 3 years of age and have been in a clan of her own for almost a year. I still visited her whenever I had time, I would call her to the fence and she would come running to the fence…

Healthy Chocolate Cake for a blue Monday

‘n Vroegoggend-Warmlugballonvaart oor die Blyde Rivier.

In die jaar 2011 het ek in die Vallei van die Olifants gewerk. Dis nou, net buite Hoedspruit, teen die oewer van die Blyde rivier en die hange van die Drakensberg, met ‘n mooi uitsig oor Mariepskop. Binne my eerste paar weke daar het een oggend wakker geword van ‘n vreemde blaas geluid reg bo…

Impala Salad with sweet and sour garlic sauce.

I love experimenting with ways to serve food, especially South African Venison. This is what came out this weekend. This recipe serves two, so you can adjust accordingly or make smaller portions for starters. What you need for the meat: 2 Impala or Springbuck tenderloins Worcester Sauce (If you are eating low-carb, like we are,…

Skryf Safari – Vrydagaand, Bordspeletjie tyd?

Ek sit hier plat op die mat en skryf vanaand. Die plaashuis waarin in ons bly het ‘n kaggel in ons slaapkamer en dis ‘n treffer nou dat die koue ons behoorlik beet het. Terwyl die vuur hier oorkant knetter en sis, dink ek oor bordspeletjies. My gunsteling is Scrabble. Die probleem is, hier is…
