Waterberg

Had a good ride in some nice hills of the Waterberg. Did 220 km all together. That is counting 105 km from the Nylstroom side down a fair amount of dirt road. Some stony stretchers and other sandy patches.20140418_054412 20140418_054357

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then there was about 18 km  riding around the farm.20140420_07165920140419_001207

Came back home past Naboomspruit and Cresy.

Down hill to Naboomspruit. With Springbok flats stretching out in the distance

Was very disappointed to see the tar road that was ripped up by a contractor who ran out of money or was it ran away with the money. Ripped the tar road up in about 2011 has not even been taken to court or the government has not got another contractor to retar the road. There is about 5 km of dirt road now. It used to be one of the main roads to transport grain, fertilizer and other goods out and in of the Springbok flats. Now transport company’s have to use other longer routes.

Can see what road looked like before it was ripped up. This piece of road was left untouched

Cannot say too much about the fishing. Did not even get a bite. We tried all different baits, worms and lures.

As can be seen from the pictures it was in a lovely setting. The winter temperatures are on their way in. Night was a little cool (6 degrees celsius) and day time temperature going up to 30 degrees celsius.

Well there are lots of nice off-road places in the Waterberg. Game farming is reclaiming the bush and cultivated lands are returning to bush.

Africa is at Gautengs door step. Malaria free and close to the big cities.
