Very nice area.  My dad used to farm close to the Kouga (Walletjies).  We went through there in December.  This was taken then.

Swartbaard en KanaalAap identifiseer julself :-) Ek is die ou wat altyd die Rooibraad Rally gereel het. Ek het hom so gedoop omdat Nico se bynaam al die jare Nico Rooibaard was maar die baard nou ook al grys :-) Die ander dag weer die rally dvd's gekyk sommer weer suur geraak vir daai jaloerse #@%& wie alles opgeneuk het. Nico en Mellanie twee awesome mense.

I've been thinking to organise a ride to Kouga Wilderniss  for ages.  I did a hike there last year & thought it the perfect place for a weekend away..... sometime soon!!

.


Johan Herselman, die plaas behoort nou aan sy broer, Japie.
Dit is nou 'n vakansieplasie, baie van die familie kom daar bymekaar.

Ek wou weer van die Heights deurry Walletjies toe, maar die eerste hek het nou 'n slot op a.g.v. diefstal in die area.

(Jammer dat ons die tread so hijack!)

Thanks TR. Nice RR. :thumleft:

Ek en Jupiter was laas jaar Julie daardeur.

Alhoewel dit een van die mooier roetes is wat ek gery het, wil ek hom graag weer doen want ons het die Saterdag heeldag gery, Saterdagaand 'n rowwe nag gehad. (Eers 12:30 gaan slaap en dit was vrek koud). Sondagoggend vroeg was ons uit die Baviaans (Op Jupiter se pêl se plaas oorgeslaap), bo deur Uniondale en die Onder Kouga bordjie so teen 12:30 bereik. Ek kon nie als inneem nie.
Getting lost during an adventure is a relative term. It all depends if you're enjoying it.

excellent ride report! inspired me to try this over the weekend. was as expected a great ride and an even better location to stay over, Nico and Melodie are more than accommodating even had a couple cold six packs waiting for me on my request!!!. did the waterval hike on sat morning, definatly making plans to go do the other hikes. no ride report I'm afraid was in such a rush.

TR if you were impressed with the Bo- Kouga , you should try the roads that runs into the Suurveld.

From the Kareedouw station towards , either Humansdorp or even Hankey or Patensie. Many, many Km's of unridden dirt roads.

Nice RR. I believe oom Nico came of a bike a while back and burned himself as well as torn ligaments.
