On the Deck at Doringkloof Boskamp
South Africa

The Baviaanskloof is one of the more remote areas of South Africa. This area is around an hour and a half from the closest town. The road from Willowmore is quite accessible and anybody who does not have a 4x4 and wants to visit this area, is recommended to go into Baviaanskloof from the Willowmore side. In the Baviaanskloof are several lovely camping sites maintained by the local farmers.

This truly stunning campsite is located on the farm Doringkloof. This camp site is in the middle of the bush and a 4x4 is required to get to it since to get to it you need to ford a river and go over a trail that requires good ground clearance. The site itself is however beautiful and well-tended with electricity, fresh water and wildlife frequenting it.

For visitors to 360cities, please note that the direct links to other panoramas are as the crow flies and bears no resemblance to the time it takes to arrive at those other locations. Especially not in the rugged, mountainous terrain of Baviaanskloof :).

More About Africa

Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.Text by Steve Smith.
