Karoo - Day2 Leg12 - Victoria West

Victoria West was the next town we reached. We were already tired after a very long ride for the day and we could have happily booked in somewhere and relaxed for the rest of the day, but we had pre-planned the route and still had to make it to De Aar, so that we could make it to our destination on time the following day. We had to get petrol and so looked around the first garage in the high street. The thing that struck us about Victoria West was all the varying Architecture of the place. It was very quaint.

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.

Some interesting old houses as you get into Victoria West

All sorts of varying Architectures
Just before we got to the town - now on some tar road - we could see forever

Once we arrived at Victoria West, we first found this drying lake
Strange green algae in the laken
Vic West is a pretty little Karoo town

The sort of place we'd like to have stopped and stayed in if we didn't already have a plan

A blue house? - not often you see those
