Jan Joubert Koppie and it's never ending views usually leaves guests breathless.
During this time of the afternoon, there is a light western wind pushing in from the coast.
This obviously brings about the necessity to enjoy a Jagermeister, OBS, Kleine Keller or any good equivalent.
We had great times on this koppie, and so will anyone that ever get the opportunity to visit this magical land.

Thanks for a very nice RR Canzius, every evening the highlight of my day to drool over the pics and read every word. The memories come flooding back.
I remember that thick sand around Purros, you have to be awake! Did you guys get stormed by a vicious dog while riding past the shacks? He nearly took Xpat off his bike!

The 3 Stooges also arrived a bit later..... after swimming together naked....... :o Look, it's been a long trip, not judging....





This is a great pic...One of my favourites of the trip.

Now I am not supersticious about taking an extra beer on occasion and I like a drop of wine in the evening, but those that know me know that I have little time for those on a drinking safari and personally don`t really drink during the day (evening round a fire is clearly different..)...BUT , Manchester United tavern on that morning after a lekker mellow ride up Purros Canyon and a swim...man, that was a memorable beer:... good mates, Himba piss and upturned beer crates with a cold Tafel Lager and Trevor`s jokes. Great memories.

To give guys an idea on the meals we were served, I think this night we had T-bone, roasted potatos and salad i think there was even desert. In the morning we got a full breakfast with a few variations. Most days we got a snack pack for lunch with dried fruit, nuts, biltong and cheese and a few other variations. Perfect for maintaining energy through the day

No wine gums?  Dit was ons stapel voedsel.  :biggrin:

We live and learn KTMKobus - Ek sal defnitief vir jou saambring as ons weer in George is. :ricky:

 :imaposer:

Was die naweek weg en daai wine gums is so deel van my ry soos Ďn helmet.

Winegums en Natures Valley granola bars  ;)       hulle vind steeds hul pad in my rugsak in as ek gaan ry  :ricky:

Every photo amazes me on how green it is!


Agreed!   amazing difference.   

except the tree in van zyls camp that we camped under......  hy het aansienlik meer blare gehad toe ons onder hom gekamp het.

The descent after the steps was tricky- off-camber and loads of loose rocks








Considering the whole van zyls pass, this is probably the part that I struggled the most with when we went through there.  I put my bike down more than once on that descent with the loose rocks and I was completely drained when we finally got to the bottom.



Awesome report ! :ricky:     

brings back a lot of memories...    when I look at your pics I remember every place like we were there yesterday.

Thank you!

It was really challenging and I think mostly a bit of a surprise. Somehow thought that once you go down the step youíre done with Van Zylís........
