    How about a long weekend in April? We know Foxie should be able to walk by then & since it's a national bash - it's enough time for peeps all over to join?

    Bike ride idea (around the dam) - busy looking at various accommodation options in the area. Proposed time to do this:- September - October 2012 - its too cold in winter (in freezes there) and WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY hot in summer... I dont know the dates of the major rallies at that time
    Name:  Oviston.jpg

    This ride would include a trip INTO the dam wall at Gariep (on foot...no biker flying over the wall). A possible braai at one of the dorpies, a trip over the Aqueduct - and will include 3 provinces

    Accommodation ideas for Oviston:-

    Siloam Village can accommodate 120 ... and their rates look good
    Forever Resort is also very pretty (right near the dam wall)

    WHoa! Didn't realise Siloam Village can handle 120. That is pretty handy.

    Public Holidays in the period you are considering:

    9 August - Thursday
    24 September - Monday

    Might help to stretch the weekend a tad.
