Oops, sorry. Ok, I don't really have anything from a real adventure ride, but here goes.  This is very close to home.

You are there by Denny Mushrooms. Other side of that suburb on the hill is Stockville/Gillits and Kloof behind that

Enviroserve shongweni just about behind you. That valley in front to the right is Giba Gorge with what used to be a lekker mountain bike trail ...dunno about now

Somewhere in the Geluksburg area? Between van Reenens and Bez. Pass? This is a wild guess.
