Transkei Trip 2015 / Trip Report / Picasso

The long way down

Lunch Stop at the banks of the Orange River

Up the Jouberts Pass near Lady Gray / desperately in search of Snow.

First Overnight Camp / Cold Night, crisp Morning, beautiful scenery

In search of more Snow.... up the Lundeans Neck Pass

Riding on the crest of the Mountain down to Morgans Bay

Next Morning from Morgans Bay across the Kei River with a Ferry into the Heart-Land of the Transkei

Another River Crossing .... this time without a Ferry followed by a steep and rocky river exit.... Was a long Day .... arrival in Cwebe Bush Camp after dark

Next morning...Two Great Whites are spotted.

On the way to Dwesa.... stopover at a River for late Breakfast.

The following day... exploring the Dwesa Nature Reserve and Dwesa Point.

I told our friendly local Tour Guide that we do drive ordinary 2WD vehicles.
He was then so friendly and created a new pass next to the mud track ....
however .... some of us still needed to see what the Kombi can do...

Beach walk to Dwesa Point / Sand & Titanium

The old Man and the sea ... & and some old Bones from the sea

On the way to Coffee Bay.. Down the embankment... another ferry-less river crossing coming up

Brush cleaning ... Bushman Style

Friendly locals... always willing to build a road were there is no road
Dire Straits.... Money for nothing .. and ticks for free...

Hole in the Wall

All in all once more a great Trip, great people, great experience.
Special Thanks to Stuart and Lindy for making this possible.
It is acknowledge that this is not an easy task...
the upfront organization of the trip, holding the crowd together all the time,
the various Bush repairs etc.etc

Thank you !!!
