Cederberg Oasis - weekend breakaway

Got two friends together and wife as pillion
Weekend ride
First sight of gravel



Riding into thick fog, cold and wet



Breaking through it, nice sunny day above it



Sightseeing, maybe we can spot some elephants?



Indeed



On the road again

Did some geocaching on this trip
One was hidden at the old slave bell - got it





The beginning of the gravel, some deflating of the tyres



That's what we came for







Picking up a friends lost top box, always welcome

I think we need to organize a KLR Forum vacation and group tour ride in SA. Looks fantastic.

Day two, ready to head back home
Light breakfast to start



Packed and ready to go



Looking back to from where we came through the previous day



Decisions, decisions, decisions, what road to take?



Some people must make their mark like a dog, to prove something



Their journey at an end, no more travels for them
