The ever beautiful light of the Greater Karoo – balm for the soul –
N1 out of Cape Town, off at Klapmuts, agter Paarl, Wellington, Bains Kloof closed (no signs thank you) detour past Hermon, Tulbach to Ceres, Theronsberg Pass, to the R355 the beginning of the Tanqwa Karoo. Horrible corrugations, easy ride up to Camping at Langkloof.
R355 Ceres to Calvinia tyre-eating road.
To Varschfonein for lunch break closed by Sanparks can’t be bothered to fix it and too far to go and service it – like what else do they have to do – so sad.
Up to Langkloof – nice camping site with facilities and some old decayed farm buildings: The Wall – not a symmetrical brick in sight 🙂
