A leisurely drive along the ‘Toti ‘waterfall route – Feedback—
Thanks to all!!! Who made the effort to come out and enjoy the day with us. We had a pretty large group of vehicles 28 in total and it was a great way to start off the outings for the year.
09:00 arrived and departure was imminent. Setting off in a road train stretching out about a kilometre long. While going through the local township the roads we proberly got a few weird looks from the taxi’s when they stopped for passengers and couldn’t get back on the road until we passed he!he!he!he!
Off the tarmac and onto the dirt we encountered an old church a good place to say your last preys before…….. You get some incredible breath taking views and forget you should continue breathing.lol!!!
On the way down we came across a few bikes and quads that were there to also enjoy nature at its best. First bit of serious offroading went of pretty well only a few seats got chewed up and needed some re-upholstery.
On one of the river crossings we came across some local law enforcement who luckily were bribed with some fresh grass to allow safe passage through the valley.
After a few more river crossings we came across a play area where we could practice some articulation and hill climbing .At the top we decided to all pose in voortrekker style for a group photo.
Then it was off to the braai spot as our stomachs were starting to digest themselves.
At the picnic area we managed to squeeze all 28 vehicles in and no sooner braai’s were set up and fires blazing awaiting all the carnivores to lace the grid’s with meat and spice.
Gazebos were set up and every available inch of shade was used up while chomping down on lunch, as the sun was blazing down on us with no mercy.
After lunch a few decided to go explore the surroundings and found a tranquil spot next to the river with a beautiful small water fall and a lovely swimming area.
So it was pack up time and we set off to the main Nungwane falls.
Along the way we saw the Nungwane dam which is quite low because of the drought which our country is experiencing at present.
At the falls there were some spectacular trees growing out of the cliffs in places that no man could possibly think of or manage to plant them there showing the power of nature.
As some were taking last minute photos others were just relaxing and taking in the scenery.
Thanks to all who attended again and hope it was a enjoyable outing couldn’t be done without the participation of all the club members and let 2016 be a amazing year to all so watch this space for future outings!!!
