8 vehicles met outside Ceres for breakfast and a chit chat before hitting the road into the Tankwa Karoo. The notorious R355 was in good condition but still cost one puncture for one member. Arriving at the turn off down to the river meant going into low range and an interesting but not technical drive down to the water’s edge.
Wonderful weekend out in Aurora amongst the flowers on a beautiful farm off the beaten track, just sea views, mountain backdrops and tranquility.
3 weeks of pure African Adventure
The trip, focusing on touring national parks of Zambia, was made up of the following club members with the group of 9 vehicles representing a cross section of 4×4 brands, although surprisingly no Landrovers were present this time.
The Freedom Day Long weekend was the ideal time to head to Baviaanskloof, a Nature reserve in the Eastern Cape some 660km form Cape Town.
The Baviaanskloof is remarkable in terms of the diversity of its natural ecosystems. Seven of South Africa’s eight biomes (major natural regions) are represented here including fynbos, forest, grassland, succulent Karoo, nama-karoo, sub-tropical thicket and savanna.
