Wednesday 6thDecember 2017


  • Ladybrand
  • Along the border of northern Lesotho
  • Clarens
  • The 'Golden Gate Park'
  • Sterkfontein Dam
  • Ladysmith


This is one of the days where you are not staying on the train. You might go on the bus because it's a long ride but believe me it's worth it. The scenery on this route is breathtaking.

Riders (320m/510km)

It is the longest ride on a day but I a sure you it's worth it. The scenery while we driving on good roads along the northern border of Lesotho. Lunch in Clarens and after that we driving through the 'Golden Gate National Park' with rockformations you might never have seen. But this is not the end, on our way to Ladysmith in the late afternoon we passing the 'Sterkfontein Dam' the biggest in this area. Most of our time that day will be the unlimited photostops we have to take.
