Cloverleaf rides

Cloverleaf Baviaans 2.-9. July 2016

Program and route:

We get together Saturday 2nd July at the Makkedaat Caves in the western Baviaanskloof (on the Willowmore side). At the Makkedaat caves there are 2 sleeping options: you can either book a bed and just bring a sleeping bag or you bring your own mattress and sleep in a barn. We ride about 30km every day. Day 1 is a circle, southward from the Makkedaat caves to Matjiesfontein and back through Boskloof. Day 2 is a circular route nothwards to Adamskraal, down with the Nuwekloof pass, and back to the Makkedaat with a 4x4 route. Day 3 We move our base camp 20 km eastward to Bo-Kloof. We ride from place to place along with the river course, sometimes on the main road. Once we have unsaddled, we pick up the vehicles & trailers/boxes. There are the same options again: either book a bed or make up your own bed in a barn. Day 4 We ride southwards with Uncle Ruben's pass and come back to Bo-Kloof through a very nice gorge. Day 5 is again southwards with another 4x4 road, we turn east again and come back along Sewefontein. Day 6 is a shorter circle. We climb up a “table mountain” & come with a footpath down the mountain. In total we ride about 175 km over the 6 days. Every day with its own beauty. Saturday morning 9th July we have breakfast together, load our horses and are on our way back home.
