Karoo - Day2 Leg9 - Fraserburg

We rolled into Fraserburg somewhat later than originally planned, but the Old Post road had been well worth the extra time investment, it had been one of the best parts of the whole trip. We eased into town, looked first for petrol, then for a place for something to eat and drink. Thirsty work out in the semi-desert! Finally found a little place called the Meercat Coffee Bar and got a fantastic hamburger there. Then realising we were only just half under way in distance, but with less than half the day left, we had to press on to our next stop Loxton and Victoria West. Still had 337km to go before dark.

This is the daily blog from A short series on the Karoo Motorbike tour we took on during September 2011. See the plans for the trip blog here: Planning a 6 day 2500km route through the Karoo maximising dirt
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.

Watch out for Ant bear holes in the road Richard! That's coming up next.
