We started to hike again and very soon the path emerged into what Felix called ‘The Meadow Land’, it really looks more like a Mooreland, a sparse landscape with grass, heather and small bushes, it also has a plant unique to the mountain the Giant Lobelia. As we climbed higher it became more like the South African Fainbos, and the flowers we saw were small yellow everlasting ones. Interestingly there was no wildlife, not even many birds.
The rout took us up and down through gorges, climbing steeply all the time.After about 2 ½ hours walking it was time to stop for lunch. A lot of very large black and white crows were waiting for the lunch left-overs, Saz has been reading to many Twilight books and she stated that they are ‘The Omen of Death’.
We had been walking for about 6 hours when we rounded the top of a gully and saw the silhouette of the two large dining huts at Horombo Camp. They looked massive, shrouded in mist. The mist blows through Horombo all the time and it is a blessing, as with out it the Suns rays would be so strong your skin would get burnt in no time.
