ChrisL, the Oribi gorge is about 20km west of Port Shepstone (KZN)
Really an awesome gorge to view, well worth the visit!
If it's not broken - ride it until it is!

OK, I have to run ...
So I will give it away.

It is a train bridge crossing the Bloukrans river (S33 21.534 E26 43.173)
The railway line is no longer in use.

Cheers!


ChrisL - below is another pic of the Oribi gorge


Open to anyone to gooi a pic!

Do one pass the Boukransriver when you ride Bloukranspass then? It is near Stormsriver.
