We are having a ball out here in the wilds. While at the Karoo National Park we did the 4x4 route to Bezwene. The only difficult part was the river crossing, not actually a crossing but a drive along the river bed for about +/-30 meters. Boulder hopping would be a better description. It was great fun.
Yesterday we went into the Camdeboo National Park and after visiting the Valley of Desolation we decided to try the 4x4 trail. 6.7 Km took over an hour and a half!! The beginning is very easy, then you start to climb into the mountains, here the fun really starts. Once committed you have no choice but to carry on, steep slopes to go up, rocks to go over loose stones to contend with, then at the top there is the most wonderful view over the plains of Camdeboo with the Nqwebe dam and the mountains to the north. (then down on the same route!). An hour plus later we were sitting at the Drosdy Hotel having a G&T.
