Blooming views along the Aloe Trail, Port Elizabeth.

We recently ambled along the Aloe Trail with members and friends of the The Zwartkops Conservancy and captured some breathtaking moments. We chose the 7km trail and enjoyed great weather, winter blues and vibrant aloes in bloom. The trail meanders along the top of the ridge above Amsterdamhoek and heads up and along the Swartkops River in the direction of The Flamingo Trail.
