Description:

On arriving in Brandvlei, we were told to look for the "pointy trees" to find our accommodation for the night. The flatness of the vlaktes and the astonishing height of the trees meant that we could navigate to Casablanca very easily. I think the pointy trees deserve an observation :-) (Though I forgot to take more detailed pics.)

BTW Casablanca is a quaint & quirky self-catering place in a Wild West town, with very hospitable hosts.
