Verlorenkloof Visit August 2013

There are several bird species on the Estate, too many too mention, which also visited during the mornings and late afternoons looking for something to eat.
We went on a scenic tour around Mpumalanga area. Our first stop was Pilgrims Rest. This used to be a small mining town. I was surprised at how neglected it was. Most of the shops and houses have closed down and today is almost a “ghost” town. This is such a shame as it used to be one of South Africa’s main attractions a few years ago. It was heartbreaking to see one of the jewels of Mpumalanga in such a state of neglect! These are just a few of the “nice” buildings that are left of this historic town.
