HTHT18 - DAY SEVEN : WC (PT 2)

Part 1: The Motorcycle Room (Knysna)
The Motorcycle Room is all about great memories, with your favourite bikes you owned, or wish you had. It’s a private collection of over 100 bikes (rare, custom, and every day). The collection includes old classics, vintage enduro bikes, motocross and superbikes, and a wide variety of customs too - but the emphasis is definitely on the tough little 50s of our schoolboy days.

Part 2: Bloukrans Bungy (Bloukrans Bridge)
The view from Africa's highest bridge captures all the majesty and tranquility of the Bloukrans River valley. But there is nothing tranquil about throwing yourself more than 200 metres down towards the river below. Recognised as the ‘highest bungee from a bridge’ in the world, Bloukrans Bungy uses pendulum bungee technology to ensure the smoothest, most comfortable bungee jump possible.

Part 3: 5Talks with Riaan Manser (@riaanmanser)
During the 5Talks we chat about his difficult childhood, and the impact it has had in overcoming adversity. We find out what it means to him exploring the world with someone else...namely his wife (Vasti), and then we chat about his latest project @TheOdysseyRow

Part 1: South African Large Telescope (Sutherland)
Spoke to Lisa Cruise, about the telescope that has been inspiring a generation of young South Africans to dream big! The Southern African Large Telescope is a 10-Meter class optical telescope designed mainly for spectroscopy.

Founded in 1884, and situated on the fringe of the Great Karoo, Matjiesfontein, is known for its historical buildings. Some of which, like Lord Milner’s House, has even been rumored to be haunted. We chat to some of the experts in the town.

Part 3: Ronnie’s Sex Shop (R62, Barrydale)
This popular roadside attraction has absolutely nothing to do with sex...or does it? We chat to manager, Ludwig, about this establishment’s history, and get an understanding on what it means to visit, and leave something behind.

HTHT18 - DAY FIVE : NC (PT 2)

Part 1: Kanoneiland
Just outside Upington on the Orange River, Kanoneiland is the largest inhabited inland island in South Africa. Kanoneiland is a beautiful settlement situated in the Northern Cape in South Africa. What makes this settlement stand out from the rest is that it is situated on the largest inland island in the gorgeous Orange River Valley. It is, in fact, the biggest river settlement in the country.

Part 2: Padstals
At Kakamas we stopped off at “Die Pienk Padstal”, it is a landmark roadside stall situated about half way between the towns of Pofadder and Upington. There we chatted to Francois about the history of this stop. We also stopped just outside the Riemvasmaak Hotspring where we found Berg En Dal padstal. Known for its coffee and traditional food, especially their roosterkoek and vetkoek. We spoke to Ridi and Julie

Part 3: iemvasmaak Hotspring
It means to ‘tighten the strap' or 'tied with strap’. Riemvasmaak is 75 000ha of sheer mountain desert wilderness, located between the Orange and the dry Molopo Rivers, approximately 57km from Kakamas and 170km from the Nakop Border Post with Namibia. It is a wilderness born from violent volcanic activity millions of years ago, but it is a land of beauty that takes on spiritual proportions. Here you can relax in the hotsprings dwarfed by 80m high granite cliffs. Or attempt a challenging 4×4 trail, hike down the canyon to the Orange River or simply set your soul free to soar with the black eagles through the lunar-landscape. We chose to just enjoy the hotspring

The movie Pretville is a rollicking Afrikaans musical set in the 1950’s. On completion of shooting the 50’s movie the set was literally converted into a working village and theme park where people can work, shop and play. This brightly coloured, busy-looking, vibrant movie town offers visitors many photo opportunities.
