“Mountains & Rivers” ~ A magnificent Drakensberg Rockjumper looks over his alpine home at the top of the Naude’s Nek Pass in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.
Eileen and I love mountains and rivers. They are full of life and nature abounds. One of our favourite “high altutude” destinations is Naude’s Nek near Rhodes in the Eastern Cape. It climbs to over 2500 metres above sea level and is the third highest pass in South Africa. At the top of this southern Drakensburg fairyland you find “a heaven-like place between sky and earth” called Tenahead Mountain Lodge and Spa. It’s slogan doesn’t lie and it has to be one of the most spectacular lodges our country has to offer. Not to mention the 230 bird species that call it home. The pass is one of easiest places to locate the full compliment of Drakensberg specials; including the endemic Drakensberg Rockjumper, and the lodge is arguably the best location in the world to photograph them. There are at least 5 breeding Rockjumper pairs within two kilometres from your front door; where this beautiful male was photographed with an iconic Naude’s Nek background.
This limited edition image is part of a series called “Iconic African Birdscapes”; focused on showing iconic African landscapes and the birds that call them home.
