Nalatale Ruins

Nalatale Ruins.JPG

The Nalatale Ruins are ruins from some old tribes that I don’t know about. It was one of the tourist things that Daniel had to see, so off we went in the dark, driving through these four wheel drive roads, not sure where exactly the place was, and finally just camping out once we got there. It wasn’t a bad place to stay for the night and we didn’t have to pay anything.

Pretty impressive view from my tent. You could see for miles and miles. At night I got to hear a few lions, hyeanas, and other questionable animals. Cool stuff.

Our campsite was on the top of a protected plateau so it had a nice sunset view.

Okay, you gotta really look, but there is a leapord in this picture. As we were driving, we rounded a turn and there was a leapord just lying on the side of the road. Everybody, including the leapord were pretty stunned. It actually stayed there for a bit but Daniel is the biggest chicken I have ever seen and rolled up his window. I then had to climb out my window to try and get a photo. It was walking away and I couldn’t keep it in my viewfinder and in focus. Finally, I just took a desperation shot in hope that I would get something. If you can see it, let me know. I swear it did happen. That was the conclusion of our “Big Five” search.
