Its been 6 days since I left home.
I’ve seen some ancient bushman art in the splendid mountains of the Cedarberg, in Clanwilliam.
Circumstances forced me to cover my first very first 80 km of South African dirt road riding from Lambert’s bay to Bitterfontein.
Met the loveliest couple who run good wholesome affordable Dawn Ridge guesthouse there.
Trekked on up to Springbok, through some amazing scenery.
Stayed at the cool, affordable Springbok Caravan Park where the manager Anton could give me some great tips on dirt routes around Springbok, he also rides a dirt bike and has done some pretty daring routes in one short year.
From Springbok, I went West to visit the deserted diamond mining town Kleinsee, then back to Springbok.
Next day I trekked accross a couple of hundred kilometers of exquisite desert landscape to Augrabies, home to the majestic waterfall in the Kalahari.
And thats where I am now. The waterfall, or place of great noise as it was known by the original inhabitants, the bushman dazzles with its power and splendour.
I will spend a second night here and then head on eastwards. Kimberly, Bloemfontein, Lesotho, Swaziland, Maputo, and then back down the east coast home. Its getting hot in these parts. Lucky for me it only got to a maximum of 32 degrees, but the heat is coming in , so I better get out!
