And that is how you learn where the road leads to and what it looks like there. Thank you

Awesome pics, and ride.

I think you were at the gates to the Sambona Nature Reserve.

A long time ago we did a ride home from the Buffelspoort, and included the old Ghost Railway line. Knowing that we needed to go through Sambona, we contacted them ahead of time and they graciously arranged an escort for us.

When we got there this chap said it was a waste of time going straight through the reserve and took us on a bit of a game drive on motorcycles.

Was cool, till he mentioned that we were now riding through the Cheetah camp, now how fast does one of those things run again.

Took this pic on that ride. Right close up they were.
