Karoo - Day5 Leg22 - Find a place & dinner

Having arrived in Prince Albert in the light, it took is some time to sort ourselves out for the evening. We first filled up with petrol which took longer than expected. After that we started looking around for places to stay. We ideally wanted something cheap and cheerful just to sleep at so that we could get going early in the morning, but all the places we found seemed too expensive, nice as they were. After the fourth stop we finally found a magnificent spot just on the outskirts of town which was self-catering and cost us about ZAR 250 for a unit. So we each took a unit and headed off for dinner at a restaurant in town. We had some good red wine and a fantastic rump steak, also at a really good price for the quality. Another perfect day and all there safely after some awesome riding.

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.
