Today we made our way halfway to Kruger National Park. Our stop is at a country inn near Tzaneen. We ventured from the highveld (dry) to the lowveld (semi-tropical), As we left Pretoria, the dry climate did not support much agriculture. What there is tends to be cattle and some corn where it is irrigated. As we got closer to Polokwane (Pietersburg) agriculture activity increased and as we neared Tzaneen, fruit (mango, oranges, avocado, and bananas) were plentiful. In addition, there are a great number of forest plantations (weeping pine and eucalyptus) often existing side-by-side with the orchards. We checked in to the Glenshiel, a nice country inn near Tzaneen and then went off to view a cycad reserve. Interesting plants that still exist from prehistoric days. At this reserve, some date to 1000 years.
