Final Day of adventure back to Citrusdal

After breakfast, we head for our final day on the road. The first part back to Citrusdal is on tar and relatively flat but is not to be underestimated. This is the Koue Bokkeveld and it is not for the fainthearted. It could be extremely hot or freezing cold, and if there is a headwind it can be really tough Take care down the fast-paced tarred road pass, which is a screamer all the way into Citrusdal and the finish point.

Once you reach Citrsudal, you will be transferred back to Cape Town.

Road condition: Tar, gravel, and mountain passes

Meals: Breakfast 

The END OF THE ROAD….for now
