Jock of the Bushveld – SA's best loved dog hero

In the early days of South Africa’s European history, a man by the name of Percy FitzPatrick returned from England to South Africa to support his recently bereaved mother at the age of 22. In 1884, FitzPatrick left his home in the Cape in search of adventure and perhaps fortune in the Eastern Transvaal. Gold had been discovered in the area and he was one in a million who had made their way to the region to claim a portion of it for themselves. However, Percy’s attempts at gold-digging were somewhat unsuccessful and before long he gave up, bought a wagon and some oxen and began life as a transport rider.

The Cango Caves South Africa

One of the greatest treasures to be found in the Little Karoo along the Garden Route, is the Cango Caves in South Africa. Perhaps the earliest discoverers of this immense 5.3 kilometer long cave system were the San people who graced the entrance of the cave with beautiful rock art some 10 000 years ago while living here. However, there is no evidence that the San penetrated the caves much deeper than the large entrance – a task which would have been difficult at best for them. Since 1891 when the cave was officially opened to tourists, many thousands of visitors have chosen to explore the Cango Caves as part of a guided tour.
