I’ve often heard that a 4×4 offroad type vehicle is a prerequisite for driving on the sandy corrugated roads roads of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Situated in the Northernmost corner of South Africa, this National Park does not have the Luxury of tarred roads like the Kruger National Park and others. Speed is limited to 40km/h and signs requesting that tyre pressures be lowered to prevent further damage to these corrugated roads, and to improve the driving experience are visible at all the camps in the park. On a recent visit to the Park, I had the privilege to witness a Cheetah cross one of these roads ahead of me. I couldn’t help but notice the opposites between the deep tyre tracks of the heavy fuel powered vehicles that had already travelled this road before me, contrasted with the delicate pawprints left behind by the fastest animal in the world as it swiftly made its way across one of these infamous Kgalagadi corrugated roads. Opposites is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images of the Cheetah crossing the tyre tracks is my response to the prompt.

…………the journey continues……
