Rise of the Rhino - Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Africa | Outpost Magazine | World Travel Magazine

Rise of the Rhino - Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Africa | Outpost Magazine | World Travel Magazine | Travel | Scoop.it
Outpost Magazine's insight:

The Land Cruiser’s wheels spin on the gravel road as we lurch up a small hill. Stopping at the top, Leon, our guide and driver, points out roaming elephants far off in the valley below. We step out and walk over to the edge. The lush green landscape reminds me of a scene from Jurassic Park—minus the dinosaurs. Zebras and kudu, as well as elephants, meander by a twisting river that zigzags its way to a distant horizon. As the bright hot sun pierces a clear blue sky, an untouchable, subconscious energy seems to flow in and around us. It’s a connection with nature one doesn’t find at the city zoo. Everything here is unconstrained by signs, fences or steel bars.

Tale of Tea | Outpost Magazine | World Travel Magazine | Travel | Scoop.it
Outpost Magazine's insight:

In this heavy haze, absolutely nothing is obvious and the shadowy images become benign gargoyles that stoop and sweep through space, giving the whole vision something of a gothic appeal. Sacred and ancient, these draped forms are tea trees that collectively comprise a forest whose contents have aroused an almost fanatical devotion—in others, and in myself. Tea has been harvested here for more than a thousand years and the trees’ longevity owes much to the meticulous care that the indigenous tribes, who make this geography home, have attended upon them.

Outpost Magazine's insight:

In Burncoat Head Park in the Bay of Fundy, it’s late afternoon in early June, the tide is out and I’m standing on the burnished beach, gazing at the sandstone cliffs towering in front of me. More specifically, I’m studying trees. One clings to the thin layer of soil now above it, trunk dangling downward, roots straining, branches so thick with leaves they seem to form a head of hair. The whole tree, I can’t help but think, looks like a child held upside down by a playful parent and can almost hear terrified shrieks of delight. I walk farther down the beach and spot yet more acrobatic trees: one leans over the cliff as if testing the wind, another sticks straight out into the sky like a diving board.

Outpost Magazine's insight:

The ribbon of road wends its way north, bobbing and dipping through wild thatches of forest that have been trimmed and tamed to make room for man. Swaths of northern jungle are parted to accommodate small settlements—the schools and stores, donut shops and diners—that are the bald spots on a pate thick with towering trees and boulders that must have been left behind by giants.
