Karoo - Day1 Leg9 - Pink blanket

As we got out into where the real Karoo starts we were greeted with the most amazing display of colour. Colour in the form of endless small yellow and purple flowers for miles and miles. This had been the result of the most rain this part of the dessert had had for something like 30 years.

One farmer told us they had seen flowers on bushes that they didn't even know had flowers. In all their farming career they had never seen anything like it. So we timed it perfectly, only in Spring and only once in many decades. it was incredible, check out the pictures and there is more to come.

This is the daily blog from A short series on the Karoo Motorbike tour we took on during September 2011.
More South and Southern African motor cycle tours on our list of tour route summaries are available, where we explore these sorts of motorcycle tour routes. Just choose one of our events and reserve yourself a place on one of the future motorcycle adventure safari events.
We thought OK - let's go and take a look
