Either Lesotho somewhere or in the Eastern Cape below Lesotho?

between Sani pass and the next town I forget what the name is.

eikeboom is the closest so far.
33°38'23.57"S
21°42'40.02"E
photo taken off the beaten track, heading in towards where the river junction downstream (good fishing and deep water swimming).
Just up the road is the Calitzdorp spa. Lovely hot springs and pools ranging from cool to hardly bearable heat. Cheap and well worth a visit as a relaxing break in a long ride. Also has campsites. No I don't work there  :)

over to you Eikeboom...
