You wouldn't know it from the pictures (which are simply stunning). Come on, give up the "other" pics.

Excellent pictures and beautiful scenery!

I plan to go riding in the Western Cape in March and to attend the Buffalo Rally in Mossel Bay.

The best best place to live in the whole wide world.......nice to see it through someone else's eyes - it gives one fresh appreciation for what one has.

You're in for a sweet trip! Check out the Wild Dogs forum for lots of local info on Southern Africa if you haven't already... http://www.wilddog.za.net/

Sorry dude - this IS a bbq - A proper braai will have more meat and definitely no veggies!!

Thanks for the kind words about our city / country. You really took some beautiful pictures of d/s heaven.

+1. You might even score a few local tour guides if you're lucky. And like many others, I'm impressed at your innocence among the Cape Baboons



This shot is priceless - definite front page stuff.

Heh, so true!

I could really go for some proper braai right about now, though.

Urrrgh

It's one of the coldest winters in 30yrs in the UK right now

My Dad has strong ties to SA, used to work in Johannesburg back during the apartheid years and although he lives back in the UK he owns a house in Simon's Town

Been twice in the last few years for a month or so at a time, desperately missing it this year, I recognise almost all the locations in the photos and I can tell anyone reading that it really is that beautiful, if not moreso

On day I'll ride down there from the UK, it's either that or Mongolia for the "sometime in the future" megatrip


Just a shame everyone seems to ride those funny BMW things down there...
