Karoo - Day5 Leg18 - River stop

On the way down to Prince Albert, we went down a long gravel road of about 100km, through a really remote part of the world, where you seldom see people, only the occasional animal. Because its in the semi-arid desert it is always quite a treat to see water anywhere. We got to this river crossing and due to the recent rains, we found quite a lot of water in the river, with it the varied bird life it attracts.

Looking at the GPS/Sat Nav in the picture below one can see the time and we only had another 20-30 minutes before the sun would set, with about 58 km or so to go to the turn off after which was another 35km, so we didn't have too much time to stop and look around anymore.

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.

Time to press on

Back on the open road
