Tuesday, December 3 I left Letaba as of early dawn at the opening of the gate of the camp to make close that 300 km of this day. On the way I visited Blyde River Canyon which is according to Lonely-Planet the third canyon of the world; I leave it the whole responsibility for this assertion. At all events there are many local tourists to see it. I went my way. Then I made a detour to see Pilgrim's Rest dating from the gold rush at the end of the 19th century and primarily at the beginning of the 20th century. Some buildings are worth the turning. I decided to push up to Sabie because a storm threatened which fell down finally day with a fall of hailstones during nearly one quarter-hour. I bivouacked in Sabie River Camp

Border ZA/MZ

The crossing of frontiers between South Africa and Mozambique around 7:00 a.m. was very fast. At the station of South Africa the customs fill the carnet de passage douane then immigration affixed the exit stamp. A little further in Mozambique immigration took a picture of my portrait as well as my digital fingerprints. I paid the tax of $50 for the visa. The customs fill the carnet de passage en douane, my vehicle was not visited. I exit the space of the border around 8:00 a.m. to go to Maputo at the Base Backpackers for two days.
