George Mountain Ultra Trail Run #1

Early #DawnChaser Mission George Mountain Ultra Trail in the #Outeniqua Mountains. Will upload a full selection to #GoogleDrive for FREE download from #GeorgeMUT web site Real peaky blinder of a day, with serious wind-chill on the Ridgeline, sunny morning vibes & proper winter squall settling over #CradockPeak just to make it interesting for the 100km […]

1979 vs 2022 Isuzu

Ah man, this truly captures the #WithYouForTheLongRUn philosophy that has driven ISUZU South Africa for the past 43 years (at the very least, based on this 1979 bakkie owned by Daniël Kotzé). We visited him and his family on the dusty plains below Vanrhynsdorp in the Namaqua West Coast as part of our search for […]

CHEAT SHOT ALERT: Double Exposure

Sometimes, the planets may well align, gifting you with a mind-blowing #bloodmoon as well as a simultaneous lunar exposure, all while fully immersed within the dramatic geography of the Namaqua West Coast Region. That moon, however, very rarely lines up in such a way as to do justice to both its celestial and earthly surrounds […]

Oorlogskloof

Ah man, #oorlogskloof … what a place this rugged #WarGorge ravine is, hidden away off the beaten track at the top of #VanRhyns Pass, and a mere 20km from the quirky village of #Nieuwoudtville. This Namaqua West Coast region nature reserve is encircled by the deep cleft carved by the eponymous river, and it is […]

Brandkop Farm #2

#Petrichor … The smell of distant rain drops thumping down onto the Namaqua West Coast plains, and blending with the dry-as-dust crust where Mother Earth rises up along the edge of the inland escarpment. We careened along the descent from #calvinia, dust-tailing onto the nondescript #Loeriesfontein back road, and here we happened upon an arid […]

Brandkop Farm #1

Booming the remote Namaqua West Coast gravel roads as we chase the #BloodMoon shadows across the #Knersvlakte plains, this time bound for the high #mesa mountains of the #HantamKaroo. This preternatural space ,- bristling with a profusion of herbaceous Succulent-Karoo and #Renosterveld scrub – is balm for the soul . The ancient geology dates back […]

Maskam Guest Farm

Kickass #gravel passes, freezing waterfall pool swims, stoned crocodiles and a #bloodmoon #eclipse … ticking every possible #adventure box here in the incredible Namaqua West Coast Region. Ouberg, #Gifberg, #Kobee and BAGDAD CAFE KNERSVLAKTE in the bag as we say goodbye to Maskam Guest Farm on Day 2 of our ISUZU South Africa #BOLDventure Mini-expedition […]

#BOLDventure Mini-expedition #1

Off on our first #BOLDventure Mini-expedition into the wide-sky horizons of the Namaqua West Coast Tourism Region. Tonight, we navigated the remote back roads beyond #vanrhynsdorp in the ISUZU South Africa #DMAXbold, and watched as an imposing #bloodmoon soared above the mythical #Gifberg massif. Waiting for the #stars of the show to make their appearance […]

Klein Tafelberg Adventure Centre

I at first thought that was a bat caught in the beam of Christo Swanepoel‘s headlamp on his pre-dawn test ascent of one of the potential #tradclimbing routes at Klein Tafelberg 4×4 #AdventureCentre. It turned out to be a swift, and hundreds more cruise-missiled past us as the eastern skyline turned from pink, to amber, […]
