Just to clarify, is this the dirt road that goes to Animal Zone?

Hey Masehare

Not sure where that is, if you are coming from Stellenbosch, you go over the 4 way at Klapmuts, Past Butterfly world, Under the N1 Bridge, Shortly after that there is a major gravel road on you left, go down that, and about 1-2 Kms down that road you will turn right up another gravel road,  I will check a map and confirm for you

Cheers

Very nice pics & report.
