Karoo - Day5 Leg12 - Farm Arch

On leaving the little village of Mount Stewart, we went down the gravel road and five minutes out of town found an interesting farm entrance. It was in the shape of an arch. made of stone. Very tall and thin, but very unique, we'd not seen any other farm entrance like this in the whole country. We wondered if it signaled a wild game lodge or something other than a creative farmer? There were no signs so we left thinking it must have been a farm but none the wiser.

After that we were back out in the wilds and twisty gravel roads which essentially followed a river. One of the things we saw appearing more and more was twisted rock formations in the cliffs from ancient upheavals.

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.

Was it a game farm? no signs to tell
Shape good for motorcyclists - we should fit through!
