Karoo Road Trip – Calitzdorp to Prince Albert

The last few days of our Karoo road trip were spent in the town of Prince Albert, right at the foot of the Swartberg Mountains. Our plan had been to drive the Swartberg Pass from the Klein Karoo over to Prince Albert, but the thunderstorms persisted and there was constant cloud on the mountains which meant there wouldn’t be much to see from the top, so we went around the mountain instead, through the Meiringspoort.

We seem to attract the rain whenever we’re camping… it’s like the weather KNOWS that our tent isn’t particularly waterproof, and even though we went to the desert, in the middle of summer… we still managed to get soaked, even worse than when we were camping in Spain last year. Africa doesn’t do anything in half measures, and when it rains… it pours. Next time, to test this gift we have for making it rain, we’re going to go camping in the Sahara desert and see what happens. 😉

        Ainda não sabemos. O objectivo seria 2015, irmos com um casal amigo que fez uma viagem semelhante há uns 2 anos, mas como vão ser papás, adiamos um pouco 🙂
