The walk meandered through forests, where we were warned about deadly venomous snakes and ticks
Our guide removed all the visible ticks for us at the end of the forest stretch – for which I was very grateful. We also saw locusts, cockroaches, a millipede and a slug eating snake (not venomous!)
After a picnic lunch by the stunning coast line, we made another steep ascent through beautiful fynbos of pinchsuions, king protea (the SA national flower) and many varieties of ericas – as well as arum lilies. Very refreshing rose syrup and sparkling water mocktails awaited us on arrival at Misty Mountain Reserve. We were warned about closing all our windows and door tightly when we left the room in case of baboon invasion. Their beautiful peacock gave a stunning display to complete our evening.
Glad I packed … insect repellant!
