Vasbyt Hiking TripOne of the 17 things I like about hiking with the Barnard’s is that you eat like a king! They picked me up after work and we set off on the 216km weekend-busy N1 Limpopo Highway while catching up on stories about work, school, girls and un-roadworthy-over-loaded taxis taking up all the safe-following-distance space. » Read more: Vasbyt Hiking Trip

Rhemardo Church CampLimpopo Provinsie hou sover die rekord vir die meeste bestemmings van ek begin tel het. Dis wat gebeur as jy van warm vakansie wil hou – neuk noord! Maar hierdie keer het ons nie die plek gekies nie. Dit was Philadelphia gemeente se jaarlikse kerk kamp, en ons ‘kamp groepie’ het besluit om saam die groot mense te gaan. Hulle het vir ‘n deel namens ons betaal, so ons kon nie nee sê nie :-) » Read more: Rhemardo Church Camp

Thabaphaswa HikeAnother hiking trip in Limpopo. We are getting used to this massive long stretch of N1 highway straight up north, with its many expensive toll roads.

This hiking trail is on a farm near Mokopane (the old Potgietersrus). The owner of the farm stays close by and makes sure that everything is very neat and working – he has someone to bring wood to the campsites, there is running water, electricity for kettles, a refrigerator to use and maps put up at both camps. » Read more: Thabaphaswa Hike
