Karoo - Day4 Leg7 - Game Farm

At some point we noticed and past a small sign saying something about game, but didn't really take much notice of it. Next minute we looked around and saw a heard of Wildebeest grazing away quite oblivious to us and our motorbikes. Most game bikes approach seem to run a mile, but unless we were down wind or unless they were not really threatened by the bikes, they just ignored us and carried on eating.

We saw a lot of springbok and other smaller animals running away as were rode past them, the animals were often way to quick for us to stop, get a camera out and take a picture. In very far the distance we could see heards of Springbok and other animals, so we wanted to approach them as quietly as possible (freewheeling downhill in neutral).

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 rode past a heard of Wildebeest
Grazing away quite happily

Not even interested in the motorbikes

We had seen a sign saying game farm earlier
One inquisitive animal looks up finally

We still had a way to go so kept moving

Looking the other way. We could see on the far valley animals - turns out it was Zebra and Springbok

There was a lot of game and we wanted to approach quietly
Bikes off to keep the sound down while taking photos
Beautiful wide open countryside
Wildebeest moving off now
