'n Paar vrae oor Baviaans?
« on: December 12, 2008, 08:11:57 am »
1) Waar is die laaste petrol wat 'n mens kry wanneer jy Willowmore verlaat na Baviaans?
2) Is daar petrol beskikbaar in baviaans?
3) Hoe ver is dit vanaf Willowmore deur Baviaans?
4) Waar is die eerste petrol beskikbaar wanneer jy uit die Baviaans kom.
Dit is ons eerste keer wat ons soentoe gaan en ken nie al die plekkies en dinge nie.
Dankie.

Hi.As far as I know, Willomore will be the last place for petrol as a sure bet before going in and Patensie will be coming out.

Just remeber to take a lot of water and other fluids as it gets really hot in December.You will enjoy it as it is absolutely stunnig.Take your time and observe the surroundings and be carefull of the water crossings.
Maybe I will see you there. :ricky:

As said, last petrol Willimore, next petrol Patensie.

From the Willimore side when you hit the long concrete water crossing - 40-50 odd meters, there is a big hole on the right halfway thru. When in doubt walk the crossing first  :thumleft:

Do a search on Baviaans in the ride report section - lots of information is available.

Kleinpoort have fuel.
It is about 100k's from Uniondale and about 30kms from where the wilderness area start durection Patensie (don't know how far it is from Willowmore - I suspect  roughly the same)

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

Kleinpoort has petrol but also depends on what time you need - best to fill-up at Patensie or Willowmore depending what end you coming from. The river water in Baviaans is generally excellent mountain water and certainly potable... lekker vir dors! Enjoy1  :ricky:

Klienpoort can supply petrol in an emergency after hours if you go knock on the farmhouse the owner will open up and assist but he does charge more the petrol than you would pay at Patensie or Willowmore. If you there on the 18th beware of 4x4 cages as the kloof normaly very deserted but over the season it gets busy. On a few of the spots very little or no space to pass unless the vehicle stops.
From Willowmore through Baviaans to Patensie is about 200 km so if your bike has a range of more than 200km you should be fine fuel wise.

Studtis has fuel, cold beers and OB's in the winter, It is on the right just before the police station. If you get to the police station turn around , it's about a K back. There is a sign

Willowmore to Patensie is 195 Km through the kloof, Studtis/Kleinpoort (same place) is 81 km from Willomore at S33 33.101 E24 01.553

Also if you are going from Knysna turn right outside Uniondale after 12.8 km into the Baviaans.

Oorkant die pad vanaf die Shell petrolpomp is daar n oop grot genaamd "Bakkrans" ten volle toegerus met matrasse, borde en messegoed,hout en as jy ,voor jy daar opdaag die eienaars kontak sal die eienaars vir jou n braaipak met slaaie voorberei. Gasvrye mense, nie die soort wat op jou privaatheid sal kom indring nie. En as n bonus is daar n buitelig "jekuuz" ;) Ek het ongelukkig nie kontak nommers nie maar ek is seker uniondale toerisme sal daarmee kan help."Gooi Mielies"

They fix punctures at Uitspan.

From willomore side go through long river crossing on LEFT of centre of road otherwise you will hit a big hole in the submerged cement causeway.

Enjoy ... it's probably going to be hot.

Also try to sleep over somewhere. it's too pretty to rush the trip.

Hmm   Ek is Sondag daardeur en ja die pad is werklik ongelooflik sleg - Persoonlik sal ek dit nie waag 2-up nie... Weet nie waar jy deur was nie maar Smitskraal en 'n heel paar ander driwwe het water gehad.

PS. as jy iets verloor het - ek het dit opgetel as dit joune is - laat weet net wat dit is en ek sal dit terug besorg.
