Limpopo roads, places and PUBS
« on: September 09, 2010, 04:19:02 pm »
Where do we go and what do we go see?

I know Magoebaskloof have some nice roads in the plantations/bush.
Sunland Baobab tree is ok for a quick visit.
Soutpansberge have many roads and Sacred lake Fundudzi (and Camp Africa Bar)

Do you know of any roads that are a must ride?
Monuments/bridges/museum that are worth a visit?
Any classic Pubs?

If you have MapSource waypoints please gooi.

Yo SlŠinte Mhaith,

I spent many a drunken weekend in Magoebas and have a bit of info for you.
First of all if you need accommodation, a good old bud of mine has been one of the main foresters there since Jesus was a baby and has 2 cottages which they rent out in the middle of the kloof. Contact Mark Gere on 082 498 4602 or his wife Glynis on 082 452 3708.
Tell him Eugene refered you.

Attached a route from Cullinan which takes you there on dirt.
There is one point where we could go through due to too much standing deep water but that was in January but I can not seem to find the exact spot on the route anymore. I'm sure it should be fine now since it has not rained of late. This does however take almost a full day to ride.

Then you will be thirsty when you get there.
Go to the Pot & Plough sort of halfway down the kloof or The Iron Crown in Heanertzburg.
Good breako's to be had at Picassos also in HeanertzburgOr just follow Mark. An old bar fly.

Then see the attached Magoebas round trip routes, but don't tell anybody it's a secret.
From the Owl's Cottage to Unpavedroad3 you are basically driving up the kloof along the tar.
At Unpavedroad3 you turn right towards Cherokee I think it says onto dirt.
A few km's down the road tehre is a great cheese farm.
This then stays dirt all the way untill you get to the way point R71androad.
From Road1 all the way down to the way point R71androad is the most beautifull section through the indiginous forest. It is call Woodbush forest drive. A magic place.
It is seriously twisty and gets very snotty when wet. Being a rain forest this seems to be the constant state it's in.
There are also signs saying no bikes but sneak through, it's worth it.
If anybody stops you, say you're on a mission from God.

Almost at the bottom of this section you get to the Debigeni waterfalls.
It's a must but DO NOT SLIDE down there.
I can show you pictures of us doing all sorts of acrobatic shit down there way back when and we were obviously very high and fearless as kids but it is super dangerous. As I recall about 11 people have already died sliding down those rocks. There are now all sorts of barriers preventing people from going down there.

It is a very beatifull part of our country that and plenty to see and do there but I'm sure other okes also have more info.

Enjoy the trip when you go.

Dis baie mooi daar.
Hier 'n paar foudies daar geneem in 1983 en een van ons wat rond jaag op 'n TT600 en 'n ou 390 Husky.
Daai was die dae!

What I have so far:

- Pot & Plough near Magoebas
- Debegeni in Magoebas looks awesome (don't know how I missed that previous)
- Roads around Magoebas are worth riding
- Sunland Baobab Bar (R10 to enter and no beer  :( )
- Bar at Camp Africa near Makhado
- Sacred Lake Fundudzi in Soutpansberge
- Roads in Soutpansberge are worth riding
- ? ? ?


What about north east of Soutpansberge?
Anything around Musina?
What about Alldays area?

No bud, just used to take every opportunity to get out of town and away from the "rules and regulations"(  :mwink: ) of city life and MCC's when we were still young, beautiful and careless. Now us toppies just care less...
It was also the closest lush green rain forest with waterfalls and free camping schpot to Clitoria where we could twist the ears off an old 390 Husky and TT600.

Are you from that side?
If not you should go explore around there.
Really a special area that.

I stayed with my mom round the corner from Ebenezer Dam for a year...

Mom still stays up there, so if a WD ever needs a last minute place to camp, Im sure she could find space on the lawn...
