My Cape Town Trip, Part 4

After Cape Town I went to Jeffreys Bay, driving through the Little Karoo.

This is Threewaterskloof Dam, on the bridge that goes over the middle of it.

The wind pumped the whole day travelling to Jbay. There was some clouds over the mountains, which I think clearly demonstrates why the Karoo is so dry.

The clouds just stop,

I planned to stop at the Map of Africa, but forgot where it was. I was determined to visit it. So the next day I drove back in the direction of Cape Town, but along the coast on the N2. The highway drives over some of the highest bridges in South Africa. This is the Storms River bridge:

The Storms River valley is quite a long way down below. Took this right in the middle of the bridge.

Eventually got to the Map of Africa. It’s in Wilderness, a small town on the coast, and is the location where paragliders start their runs.
