ROUTE DIFFICULTY:1 = tar

3 = interspersed with sand, mud, sand , bush / not pillion friendly
4 = lots of sand, technical riding

EV here:

If you go to the attached website and check up on Contact Us - it looks like they've got a good map there and some co-ordiantes that you might find useful

It looks like an amazing place to stay, doesn't it?

For those down in the Cape (or anywhere else), there is another amazing place called Vindoux here in Tulbagh. you can stay in the most amazing treehouses that have Jacuzzis, the works - zuper duper romantic for those of you looking for a good place for anniversaries etc.   www.vindoux.com

And one more place for Capetonians who can't get to a game reserve in the near future to listent to lions roaring at night - the DRAKENSTEIN Lion Park right in the middle of Klpamuts where you can stay in a tent in the middle of the (fenced) park - it is the most amazing experience.  www.lionrescue.org.za  A friend of mine stayed there recently and she said that although you are behind the fences, the lions get very frisky and very noisy at night so its quite scary and just plain wonderful.

Here is some more interesting info. I also put it on the 09 EC bash thread...





Got it from a coffee-table book called "Karoo Keepsakes"

Thought so...

Im glad some of these tiny Karoo spots are getting some publicity

Sad to see so many of them regress/degenerate.

Will be sure to go mark some territory with the 09 EC Bash!!
