Climbing Platteklip Gorge - Table Mountain Table Mountain, Africa Travel, Days Out, Climbing, Paths, Grand Canyon, Mountains, Mountaineering, Grand Canyon National Park

Climbing Table Mountain

The Platteklip Gorge is flagged as the 'easiest' way to walk up Table Mountain. The term Platteklip means ‘flat rock’ and is named for the smooth flat rocks that are found in the lower part of the gorge. The reason for its popularity is not hard to understand – it is the most obvious and clear way up the mountain, with a path that is very easy to follow. On a busy day, you’re likely to meet a wide range of people, from families and youth groups on a day outing to international tourists…

(For the previous blog of this trip see post here) Day 5: Fish River Canyon to Upington Packed up we made our way to the lodge for an early breakfast before hitting the long road to Upington. After another 150km of bad dirt road it was clear that The Todd had taken a real beating. The weight and road conditions pushed the suspension to the absolute limit and on occasion the rear shock “bottomed out” - which cause a lot of strain on the drive chain and I had a feeling we would need to replace…

NAMAQUALAND Wild Flowers

After some weeks of preparation we believed ourselves to be ready for our latest adventure. We're taking the bike (The Todd) on a 12 day road-trip up the South Africa West Coast to see the wild flowers which blooms during early spring around Namaqualand. Day 1: Stellenbosch to Clanwilliam We set off on a beautiful Saturday morning from Stellenbosch and headed via Wellington, over the gorgeous Bainskloof Pass towards Ceres. It’s really an amazing road and it’s hard to believe it was built…

The Roaring Green Kalahari

When, a few years ago, my sister gave us a copy of Getaway’s “1001 Places to see in Southern Africa”, I initially became rather obsessed with it. I got myself a huge full-colour map that filled an entire wall and proceeded to painstakingly plot each of the 1001 points on the map with tiny numbered arrows. Along the way, I re-discovered long-forgotten destinations and memories from my travelling past – mostly from as a kid in the back seat of our family car with a destination obsessed father…

See our route here and watch the video for more!

How to climb Mount Kilimanjaro

THE MOUNTAIN: Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest and youngest of East Africa's three largest volcanoes. The other two are Mount Kenya (5199m) in Central Kenya and Mount Elgon (4321m), which straddles the border between Uganda and Kenya. Volcanic activity formed the peaks of Shira, Kibo and Mawenzi which after half a million years saw the mountain reaching an altitude of 5500m. Eventually Shira collapsed into a caldera, followed closely by Mawenzi which rapidly eroded into a sharp, shattered…

We hit the local SPAR at 8 am to stock up on lunch goodies and stopped at the Wimpy for a quick breakfast. Luckily the Wimpy sort of redeemed the towns sluggishness and after a brilliant breakfast we headed towards Noord Oewer – the border post along the main route from the Cape to Namibia. The road was quite and the ride was relaxing. It was nice to…
