And the last pic. Near the entrance to Klein Pella, for our last night on the trip. Klein Pella is another must. Beautiful rooms, aircons, honesty bar, and unbeatable boerekos.

I will try and get Kwaggasakkie to post some of his pics and GoPro videos.

And just to remind you- all the pics I've posted were taken on my phone.  ;)

Ja nee dis great trip. Jy het nie lus om daai trippie op Mapsource aan te stuur nie?
My gps het vroeg al die gees gegee en ek sukkel met my Mapsource. Ek sal kyk wat ek kan doen. Is daar spesifieke gedeeltes waarin jy belangstel?

Ja, Gamkap canyon!!

Ek het hom klaar op T4A uitgespek en n waypoint gemaak.
Nou moet ek net vir SWAMBO oorreed.
Ek sal hout saamvat, ons ry met die kar.  :thumleft:

Nou dis wat ek van praat. Gooi daai roete!?

Great RR, thanks for sharing!  I've did a similar trip a few years ago - time to do it again!  By the way, what phone did you use? (I'm due for an upgrade in July  :biggrin: )

Thanks.

I think I should stick to doing the Richtersveld every other trip. I will never grow tired of it.

In its raw form the definition is stupefying.

edit-  I have to say though, in low light it struggles as the tiny lens is just not able to gather enough light.
