Karoo - Day6 Leg14 - Groenfontein

Once past the Swartberg Private Game Reserve, the road mostly winds along following a river valley until you get to Calitzdorp. Gravel all the way, it definitely takes after its name which translated means Green Fountain (Groenfontein). Along the route are farmsteads, farm workers homes and they are all extremely proud of their homes making up colourful flower gardens, etc. I love this route, the more I do it the more I enjoy it, riding along the base of the mountain, this is definitely one of those lesser traveled roads.

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 and motorbike hire 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.
