This essay introduces prominent figures who undertook a journey in a South African bush in 1923, and presents an extract from the unpublished trek journal of Margaret Gillett, née Clark, daughter of a well-known Somerset family. She and her husband were liberal-minded activists. Jan Christian Smuts, an international statesman and Prime Minister of South Africa accompanied them on this journey, as well as Illtyd Buller Pole-Evans, a botanist and an ecologist. In this extract, the diarist describes the landscape, flora and fauna, as well as encounters with Chief Malabok and the native inhabitants, including a gift exchange ceremony. ﺗﻘﺪﻡ ﻫﺬﻩ ﺍﻟﻤﻘﺎﻟﺔ ﺷﺨﺼﻴﺎﺕ ﻣﺮﻣﻮﻗﺔ ﻗﺎﻣﺖ ﺑﺮﺣﻠﺔ ﻓﻲ ﺃﺩﻏﺎﻝ ﺟﻨﻮﺏ ﺃﻓﺮﻳﻘﻴﺎ ﻓﻲ ٬١٩٢٣ ﻣﺴﺘﺸﻬﺪﺓ ﺑﻤﻘﺘﻄﻔﺎﺕ ﻣﻦ ﻳﻮﻣﻴﺎﺕ ﺍﻟﺮﺣﻠﺔ ﻟﻤﺮﺟﺮﻳﺖ ﻛﻼﺭﻙ ﺟﻴﻠﻴﺖ٬ ﺍﺑﻨﺔ ﻋﺎﺋﻠﺔ ﻣﻌﺮﻭﻓﺔ ﻣﻦ ﺳﻮﻣﺮﺳﺖ٬ ﻭﺍﻟﺘﻲ ﻛﺎﻧﺖ ﻫﻲ ﻭﺯﻭﺟﻬﺎ ﻣﻦ ﺍﻟﻨﺎﺷﻄﻴﻦ ﺍﻟﻤﺘﺤﺮﺭﻳﻦ ﻓﻜﺮﻳﺎﹰ٠ ﻭﻗﺪ ﺻﺎﺣﺒﻬﻤﺎ ﻓﻲ ﺍﻟﺮﺣﻠﺔ ﻛﻞ ﻣﻦ ﺟﺎﻥ ﻛﺮﻳﺴﺘﻴﺎﻥ ﺳﻤﺘﺲ٬ ﺍﻟﺴﻴﺎﺳﻲ ﺍﻟﺪﻭﻟﻲ ﻭﺭﺋﻴﺲ ﻭﺯﺭﺍﺀ ﺟﻨﻮﺏ ﺃﻓﺮﻳﻘﻴﺎ٬ ﻭﭘﻮﻝ-ﺇﻳﭭﺎﻧﺰ٬ ﻋﺎﻟﻢ ﺍﻟﻨﺒﺎﺗﺎﺕ ﻭﺍﻟﺒﻴﺌﺔ٠ ﻭﻓﻲ ﻫﺬﻩ ﺍﻟﻤﻘﺘﻄﻔﺎﺕ٬ ﺗﺼﻒ ﺻﺎﺣﺒﺔ ﺍﻟﻴﻮﻣﻴﺎﺕ ﺍﻟﻄﺒﻴﻌﻴﺔ٬ ﻭﺍﻟﺰﻫﻮﺭ ﻭﺍﻟﻨﺒﺎﺗﺎﺕ٬ ﻭﻟﻘﺎﺀﺍﺗﻬﺎ ﻣﻊ ﺍﻟﺰﻋﻴﻢ ﻣﺎﻻ ﺑﻮﻙ ﻭﺍﻟﺴﻜﺎﻥ ﺍﻷﺻﻠﻴﻦ٬ ﺑﻤﺎ ﻓﻲ ﺫﻟﻚ ﻣﺮﺍﺳﻢ ﺗﺒﺎﺩﻝ ﺍﻟﻬﺪﺍﻳﺎ٠
