Karoo - Day2 Leg13 - More Victoria West

Victoria West is definitely a place that needs further exploration. We went in, took a few pictures, filled up with petrol and then off again before you could blink an eye, back out into the vast open spaces again on our way to De Aar. Because in the morning we had spent so much time on the dirt roads, by now we still had about 150km left to do and it was 16:50 and the sunset was around 18:00 or so, so cutting it rather fine in terms of light, but we had decided not to pursue the dirt roads and so it was tar from here on till De Aar.

This is the daily blog from Africa4Adventure.com. 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.

Oops - noticed the time on the clock

Karoo Blue skies

Lovely old houses

Up the high street. remove the tar and telephone line and it would have looked like this in 1800

Back out into the open spaces again
