Wildlife

There is no thorough survey of the wildlife in the area. Animals that have been spotted during field trips include a small antelope (Guenter's Dikdik?) and monkeys (Vervet ?). Hyenas (in a fairly big number), mole rats and civet cats were indicated by droppings, holes or scent, and in the past, wild cats and even maybe leopards have been seen. Although the Eucalyptus tree offers a very poor habitat for birds, at least 16 species have been spotted, mainly along the brooks and in the open areas.

A Great Wildlife View with the Meandering streams.

 This plateau just above Bees' Cliff is a magnificently beautiful place with a great panorama view over the stream and many characters in the landscape. When the scene turns south, the abyss Bees' Cliff (14), the ravine is very close, where the river's further gorge meandering (35) becomes intuitively felt through the profound cooling airflow rising from the unknown abyss below the field of view.

** Caution: Bees' Cliff (14)


An Abyss Lost in Aeons and Underground Spaces


 
Bees' Cliff - CAUTION
A magnificent magic shadow world veiled by time beyond memories.
Thus, with the assistance of dramatic beauty, attracts this place to a thrilling approach into its surprising disappearance in space and time, However, this is overall the reason for the attraction of the place where through varying and dramatic scenery, drama creates ideal habitats for wildlife that naturally utilizes this rich, three-dimensional diversity in water and rock formations.

The Close encounter with wild Hyena.
By echoes from the past becomes the hiking here an exciting and mysterious experience that appears to trigger forgotten abilities who have been genetically dormant sleeping since many profoundly ancient times. Especially startling here is, therefore, the location of this place the tributary (36), which invites to a careful study of Hyenas that much appreciate the site's freshness and natural wealth.



Excellent fun canyon hike towards the high plateau.


Close Encounter With Playing Baboon Families.
While this place is unique in many ways, there are also careful reservations about the impact people can exert on its nature. Because this site contains what is desirable for people and wildlife, the result is that a conflict of interest and living space can occur. The path from point (36) is the last steep and wild hike towards Bees'Cliff (14) where soon enticing greenery and treacherous sloping abyss lures Ravens to pleasant arts of flights jacket pinching mischief. The direction uphill is along the northern hillside of the tributary gorge (36). The path here is quite rugged, but as the plateau's threshold is very close, the walk upwards becomes less burdensome.



Detailed Description of the Area

36. A Multiple, Spatial Nature Dream. 

Where these two streams meet, here is created a place of idle creative nature, splendid surprises in both hidden prongs and open spaces with mighty slopes. The one who stays a little concealed between the tree trunks at point  (36) can quickly get very close to rumbling and relaxed hyenas. The southern slopes of the creek  (36) are quite steep but yet comfortable hiking with beautiful views down over the mysterious river but still inviting open gorge to the river  (35).

Directly from the route's start in this small hidden gorge  (36), gentle winds deliver pleasure with a fresh coolness in a welcoming breeze from the canyon below that is well camouflaging the scary smells of civilization from reaching the hyenas in the depth of gorge  (35).


A pleasant eastern route along the tributary gorge 36.

However, Bees' Cliff (14) and its abyss is here close and with due care; therefore, preferably to choose a more eastern path along the gorge (36). The purpose of this few minute detours is not only for increased safety but also to avoid suddenly scaring wildlife that enjoys socializing around the beautiful pools right above the plateau threshold and the abyss of Bees' Cliff (14). Naturally, therefore, it is appreciated that visitors show interest by approaching the site carefully. 

 The Complex Culture among the Wildlife

In this place, this is mainly the case of baboons with playful kids, caring mothers and dominant guarding males. These are advanced creatures that resemble humans in many ways and then especially their emotional behaviour. Very clearly, this is observed when wild baboons are breeding guard dogs successfully. However, baboons also use cats for an unknown reason but, explanation to this odd or cute cat keeping is maybe so simple that the rat's appetite to the same food as baboons may not be appreciated intuitively by hungry baboon families.

Absolute Caution with Injuries and Liquor

The Hyenas can show curiosity to humans, but they are above all little cautious and restrained. Since the relationship between humans and Hyenas is ancient, a type of mutual peace has evolved, and even children are naturally left untouched by Hyenas. On the other hand, Hyenas have been seen as highly interested in sick or heavily intoxicated people, just regarding this as something different from human and therefore not included in the ancient consensus of mutual respect.

Bodily Trauma and Accident Risks

It would, therefore, be possible for a person who slips and lies demobilized hidden and injured in the shady creek bed, may at last after a few days attract Hyenas to become directly fatal. They can indeed become mighty animals and especially the females who in close contact with muscular and strength resemble brown bears in a slightly reduced size.
