If this is close to Marydale crossing the Orange river, then yes. I have....  :biggrin:

It looks like it is the same bridge, look at Day 3 on this Ride Report:
http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=161899.0

oops, I see some of the photo links are buggered (but you can still see some of the bridge pics), I will fix it over the week-end....  :-\ :-\

edit:
Yes it is the exact same bridge, I can see it from the shape of the koppie behind us. The bridge is between two farms belonging to a very good friend of mine. His sister is married to a super cool and VERY famous South African golfer, whose dad farms on the other side of the bridge. ;) ;)

That is the new bridge by the way, parts of the old bridge are on the north side, got washed away in 88 floods.
