Double Drift reserve East Cape

About 80km from East London near Grahamstown. It's also called the Great Fish river reserve.You will be allowed into the reserve on bikes.


Look out points in the reserve. Great Fish river.



And some hippos in the river, well very vaguely







Now this is game viewing at it's best :D



There's dirt passes like this with small water crossings for kilometres.

Nice one Mich, A good friend of mine has a massive game farm in this area and the Kariga River flows through his farm (which finaly end up at the Kenton on Sea mouth.

I spent a few days with my KX on his farm. Such lekker play areas.
When in doubt...grab throttle!!!

Nice one Michnus.  The Eastern Cape sure has some great scenery to ride in.
