Wild berries

Have you ever picked up how some people can go through life without noticing the little things?  Often this is the same story when you take a group of people on a hiking trail.  Some people would just do the walk to be out in the fresh air, some would enjoy beautiful views and scenic attractions and usually a small percentage would notice the details.  A succulent with a tiny little flower, a buck spoor in the soft sand, a butterfly fluttering by or wild berries on a bush like the ones in the picture.  These berries presented themselves on a walk along the Maitland Trail in Port Elizabeth.  Unfortunately I never took note of what the guide said they were.  I was too busy trying to get a good photo.

UPDATE: According to PlantZAfrica its a Tortoise Berry (Skilpadbessie) -  Nylandtia spinosa
