    Easy Bob, those cows are in storage....... The get slaugtered in there, and then eaten from the pen once cut up.
    Getting them in is the bugger, they weigh a ton.:D

    Look to the right, there is a wooden gate.... and footpath through which they pass.

    ABSOLUTELY ROCKING REPORT !!

    Picked up the link in the forums on www.wilddogtours.co.za


    I have done Katse and some others, but you guys really did do the scenic route, and wet at that.... having fallen off my 1150 around 15 times with pillion on a rainy day through the mountains, I know you guys have BALLS.

    I kept on saying Awesome, Mad, awesome mad...... while reading the report.

    Thanks a Ton for taking us expats back to our roots.

    WRT the Boat...... The old saying "Africa's not for Sissy's" still hold true. You guys rock.

    Great adventure and wonderful photography!

    I agree that the boat trip pushes it to a far higher plain.

    Thanks for posting the report.
