VOETSPORE IN SOUTH AFRICA - WEEK 7
(Proudly Sponsored by 4x4 Mega World)
Our seventh week starts at Orania. Orania is the nation state of the Afrikaner. This is where this nation wants to live independently without interference or dominance of any other. Since its establishment in the early 1990’s, many have visited this “social experiment”. People like Nelson Mandela, Jacob Zuma and Julius Malema. Now, the Voetspore team.
The night in Orania is bitterly cold. The water in the pipes are frozen again. We travel to Magersfontein. At the Royal and Crown Hotel in Modder river we meet Steve Lunderstead and Wickus van Rensburg. Steve has been a guide at the battlefields of the northern Cape for decades.
Today we visit the Mokala National Park. Mokala is the Tswana word for the camelthorn tree, which grows common in the area. Game is plentiful. National Parks Board uses Mokala to breed sensitive and endangered species like the sable antelope. They are then taken back and released in places like the Kruger Park.
Before we depart from Mokala, we go to the information centre. These types of venues are usually very boring. Not the one at Mokala. The geology, fauna and flora of this area are beautifully exhibited.
After waking up we realize Gideon has a flat tyre. On inspection we see that a drill bit has caused the damage. Streicher and Gideon plug the puncture. Not without some difficulty.
We end the week with another delicious meal. Steak with pepper sauce and vegetable kebabs.
It is the end of week seven. We have passed the halfway mark.
