One of the best parts of exploring while traveling is discovering hidden gems. Some of these hides are figuratively, as in somewhere (either a place or establishment) off the beaten track that the hordes haven't discovered yet. Sometimes you find places that are literally hidden though. One of these I found on our weekend at Baviaans Lodge recently. A walk along a stream up one of the valleys near the lodge brought us to a breathtaking spot with a river pool, sheer cliffs on both sides and a small waterfall cascade. This is my kind of place. Somewhere to go and plug in your soul for some recharging. Do click through and read the whole post as Baviaans Lodge is the ideal recharging spot even if you don't walk up that valley.
