Karoo - Day4 Leg11 - Last of the sun

We managed to make it to the solar powered electric gate of the game farm and then suddenly thought - oh no! What if this gate is locked? Because that would have meant going back all the way in the dark. Luckily it was as simple as pressing a large green button to open it, and it closed automatically behind us once we were through.

Then we were back on the main road into Nieu Bethesda. The road got a lot broader and more stable as it was used more regularly. We only had a few valleys left and we come over the hill and saw the village from above. What a welcome sight. It had been a long day, so now all we had to do was find some accommodation in the village and a place to have some dinner.

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.

We arrived at Nieu Bethesda village just as the sun had set
Blasting the last few Km into the setting sun - always difficult on the eyes
We reached the end of the game farm and had to figure out how to open the solar driven electric gate
Once back on the "main" dirt road to Nieu Bethesda it was easier again
It had been an Awesome ride in the latter part of today
Last few valleys before arriving at our destination for the night
