The Wildebeest's Review of SA Country Life Issue 278

The Wildebeest reviewing a book

Glancing through the subjects on the overcrowded cover of this September issue of SA Country Life I see several things of interest. From De Rust to Lesotho to Botswana and many more stops in-between this promises to be a good edition of one of my favourite magazines.

As always, I start with the photos in the Image Club section. This months winning shots feature a gannet, chameleon, snail and a dog. Interesting selection. I like the fourth prize photo of a dog in full “flight.”

Next, I am whisked away to De Rust. This quaint town is located in a rather scenic region of the Klein Karoo. Fancy a horse ride in Lesotho? The next article will inspire you to do it and not dream about it.

My love of birding draws me to an article on the conservation of Crowned Eagles. This is followed by a tantalizing article on birdwatching in the Okavango delta. One day I will get there and go on a mokoro ride.

Overall, a good issue of SA Country Life magazine. I have made a few plans while reading through it. What about you?
