Sweet. That is awesome. Waiting on day 3. They bring back memories. Went past the Katse dam in 1991 when they were building it. It had rained for 2 weeks and it took us 8 hours to travel 12km in 2 Land Rovers and a Range Rover. I will never forget that muddy road.

Great ride! Perfect GS roads, crappy GS boat...but it worked!

Beautiful country. Looks peaceful. Hope it stays that way.

lesotho definately rates as the best trip ive done
interestingly enough
when we did that trip last year we met the same old dude that was riding the xt 500 his name is Henry we bumped into him in a pub in lady grey on our way back from lesotho and ended up having supper with him he knows
that whole area from the trankei up so well very good guy to have a few beers with, a wealth of info and funny stories also an interesting conspiracy theory about the katse dam and a german helicopter
looking forward to day three

Waaaaay cool!
I really like the map at the start of the report. It’s one thing to see great pix of awesome riding destinations but when shown where the place is it seem much closer and more doable.
Great report,
Thanks

Maybe the underground wires from South Africa to America might be a bit rusty, no problem this side

No more waiting. Very nice indeed

And your right, there does not seem to be a shortage of rocks.

I don't blame you for having shakey hands, I'd be shakey too after crossing that river in a aluminum skiff alongside my bike. Way cool!

The boatman charged R75 each. That's about $11.

I upgraded the smugmug account so hopefully all will see again. Apologies.
