South Africa – October 1, 2002

Tuesday 1 October: Grahamstown – Coldsprings – Alicedale – Ann’s Villa – over Zuurberg Pass to Addo Elephant Park

Right on the edge of town near a school under trees are Haworthia glauca.  Leaving Grahamstown behind we went west to Swartwaterspoort (S33’12”, E025’59”), but due to river erosion the road through the poort was impassable. We then went up and over the Zuurberg Pass heading for Addo Elephant Park for the night. Just south of Ann’s Villa we came upon Haworthia aristata and at the top of the pass are fields of Haworthia glauca.
