And Breathe… After two non-stop weeks of TransCape Shooting & Media, what a pleasure it was to gear life down a notch or two. To us, slowing down goes hand in hand with nature and #naturalmovement, often with a healthy dose of exploration on the side.

This morning’s mission was #Duiwelskloof in the Banhoek Conservancy (dankie Hanlie Booyens vir die inligting). We managed to dodge the NISSAN #TrailSeeker mountain bikers and headed into the shaded gorge while temperatures on the lower trails apparently boomed into the high 40s.

While they battled the heat, we chilled out in mountain pools, under waterfalls and within the verdant embrace of the dense Indigenous trees lining the kloof. Grace clocked nearly 10km of gnarly and challenging terrain over 4hr; let’s just say both Karyn Marais and I are super impressed!

Great to test the Mizuno trail shoes and @100percent_bike_za sunnies from Pure Endurance Solutions – Pty Ltd … top class kit. As usual, the Isuzu South Africa mu-X got us there; most of the images were shot on the GoPro #Max and Sony Mobile ZA #XperiaL10
