I liked to see Springbok during early morning hours: quiet streets, random people preparing to earn their daily bread, houses not awakened yet. The first night of September had been freezing, not uncommon at this altitude of 1000 meters. The coldness pushed me to wander around, without a plan or target.
Springbok is a beautiful antelope and the name of a small town of 10,000 inhabitants in the north eastern corner of South Africa. The copper miners established the city mid 1800’s, today a big part of the livelihood comes from tourism. We stopped there for one night en route to Kgalagadi National Park.
