Dirt roads took us through the country side and into Greyton, with rolling green hills of the Overberg region that make me feel part of a Windows Wallpaper. Passing Khomeesdrif Camping Site and pulling into Riversonderend at half 10, we took a mix of tar and gravel to get to McGregor an hour later for brunch at the lovely, family run café, At The Courtyard.

Karoo Game Riding … Words by Wes Dawson, photos by Ruxandra Huh

The lodge was accommodating enough to send us off with a packed breakfast as they did the previous day so that we could leave at our usual early bird schedule. We went back up to Middelpos and then all the way down the R354 to Matjiesfontein. It was a strange sight we witnessed of a lone baboon, with no mountains for miles around.

Calitzdorp, VanWyksdorp and Rooiberg Road trip

Calitzdorp, VanWyksdorp and Rooiberg Road trip

After breakfast we left for Vanwyksdorp via the Rooiberg pass. The tar road turn to gravel and the the gravel road turns into a narrow road over the pass with some twisty rocky sections. The pass has a constant steep climb and you are soon elevated to beautiful views and a change in vegetation.
