Kayaking on Zandvlei

This time of year is amazing for going out on the Vlei for a paddle in my Kayak. It is warming up, and you still get a lot of wind-free afternoons to enjoy the water.

And for the first time in years, the Flamingo’s are back. They are in just about every river and lake in Cape Town at the moment; it is great.

    Awesome to be able to kayak near the flamingoes! What a treat — thanks for sharing the shot :)

    For the record, your ‘floating bird nest’ is home to a red-knobbed coot, Mr City Boy ;)
