So waar is Bieblebom se berge?
« on: May 04, 2009, 02:19:56 pm »
It seems to me as if the collective knowledge of places and place names, as shared between the members of this forum, is more or less encyclopedic.  Does anybody know where is Bieblebom se berge (mountains) as immortalised in the song "Rit deur die lang Karoo" sung by Amanda Strydom? ("Waar is Bieblebom se berge, en waar die Kamdeboo...")
I started biking as an under achiever and it went downhill from there...

Thanx for the info, Beserker.  I have been to that area on several occasions before and also to the "Vallei van Verlatenheid" but somehow missed Bieblebom se Berge...  It is a wonderful area and Nieu Bethesda is a must visit.

South Africa is truely a biker's paradise but you have to take time to turn off the beaten track.

Kind regards,

Leon
